I’ve never really been a fan of cardigans, and I’m not sure what it is, but I think there’s a line of thickness in a cardigan where it crosses over from being a cardigan to a coatigan. So for my own sake, I’ll be calling this a coatigan, and if any of you have a problem with that then you can just go and call the cardigan police!
When it comes to knitwear, monochrome is key. My wardrobe is full of monochrome knitwear, I have a jumper in practically every shade of cream, white and grey, black not so much. Yes, is the answer to your question, there are different shades of white and cream.
What I love about this coatigan is the pattern, I think it makes a statement and is another one of those pieces that you can just chuck on to make jeans and a t-shirt look put together. This is where my monochrome knitwear theory comes in, if this pattern was in colour it just wouldn’t work, monchrome is king, fact.
Because I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit pretty simple, I stuck with my favourite linen t-shirt (which shrunk in the wash and I am devastated about), my In the Style jeans with stitching detail up the sides (use code SIN10 for 10% off anything at In the Style) and of course, my failsafe Public Desire boots!
And here it is, my new baby, the light of my life, my new bag. I love this bag for three reasons:
- 1 – are you seeing what I’m seeing
- 2 – it goes with everything
- 3 – it forces me to not carry round everything I own.
