Cardigan Chic – Definitely not just for grannies!

When it’s as cold as it has been these last few weeks, every girl needs a cardi – or two!
Forget any misconceptions about ‘granny style’, or looking too ‘mumsy’, a well chosen cardigan can be as flexible as your favourite little black dress, and with the right styling, is a wardrobe staple for many a fashionista!

 

This gorgeous wrap by French label Parakian is the sort of ‘must have’ piece we’re talking about.  The classic black colour way means it will go with everything and the waterfall shape makes it super flattering to all figures.

For a daytime look, team it with jeans, layer on a couple of bright vest tops for colour and interest, add the wrap for warmth and extra style & rock some cosy chic.  For the office, it’s a great alternative to a more formal suit jacket, and will look great over a simple shift dress with opaque tights and boots.  Try adding an over sized brooch or corsage to the lapel as a fun, colorful twist.  When it’s time to hit the town, the beautiful sleek fabric lends itself perfectly to a more glamorous look too.  Think it’s too chilly for a strappy frock?  Add your wrap and you’ll look fabulous while still keeping warm.

 

Gorgeous Long Purple Cardigan by Bitte Kai Rand at Vida Moda If you like to stand out in the crowd, have a look at our fabulous long cardigan by Bitte Kai Rand, in a stunning, vibrant purple.   Again, this perfectly proportioned piece will go with just about everything, and happily take you from day to night.  For a day out shopping, or lunch with the girls, why not keep it simple with jeans, a plain tee, and some cute leopard print pumps for a playful pop of pattern.
In short, to keep you on trend and snug at the same time, a cardigan is what you need – the only problem, is which is your favourite?!
