Why a cardigan works now? Absence makes the fashion heart grow fonder. And who doesn’t like a warm-as-toast wardrobe staple that straddles smart-casual dressing and looks as good on its own with leggings as over a smart dress or a cashmere polo-neck and skirt?
Step forward the Boyfriend cardigan by Westend, which is neither as potentially sloppy as a T-shirt or jumper, nor as formal as a jacket. In fact, it’s perfect. Ladylike, classic, understated and with a touch of boy-meets-girl, this stylish merino knit is ideal for trans-seasonal weather and changing locations, and with its exceptionally flattering Aran stitching it always looks a cut above. Natural or Army green. Sizes S-XXL.
RRP £85. CCUK £59.
