The cardi is enjoying its very own style moment. The “neat knit”, as I’m calling it, is the one that will take you out to dinner via a couple of work meetings and back to the school run.

Walk this way...

The “neat shape” of our cream rib cardi works beautifully if you’re petite as it shows off your shape without swamping it, like oversized knitwear. Team with a floral print maxi skirt, chunky brogues or loafers (autumn's big footwear trend!) and you’re good to go. Look after your knitwear by storing it in see-through packing cubes (don’t hang them as they will grow) with a scented moth deterrent.

Work it!

Look like you mean business by belting the cardi over our office-ready snake print shirt dress. The “neat knit” is cut straight over the body so it doesn’t bag or cling, making it super flattering whatever your size. Treating this cardi more as a jacket is the perfect way to transition into your autumn wardrobe.

Hanging out...

The layering possibilities of this cardi are endless. Try it worn open over a white shirt, a stripey tee or a denim shirt. Half tuck one side into these gorgeous chocolate bootcut cords and finish off with a slash of leopard print belt and some standout heels. This is a look that will take you out to drinks with the girls – no problem!
