When you think of cardigans its easy to think of your Nan, but thanks to the likes of Burberry, Prada and Gucci, the trusty cardi is having a fashion comeback. This Autumn/Winter, the cosy cover-up will be all over the high street, from chunky knits to smarter styles and there’ll definitely be a style to suit everyone.
If like me, you’re expecting, then a cardi is guaranteed to be your new best friend. For one you can wear it throughout the entire pregnancy and beyond. Also, when you’re pregnant you’re bound to be a good few degrees warmer so a cardigan is ideal for keeping warm without getting too hot. Lastly, post baby, they are super easy for feeding in; and can double up as a breast feeding cover if you’re out and about.
Here is a little edit of the best of the high street. Just click on the image for details. I have the red one from Next and it’s a bargain at £35.
Try styling up a smarter style with a skinny belt above your bump or even just wear as a top; providing they button up high enough obviously! If you’re looking for more of an investment, then a coatigan (that’s fashion talk for a big cardigan that doubles up as a coat) will provide tons of wear this winter.
Here’s some bump-spiration from maternity megastar Laura Wills (@thefashionbugblog) looking bloomin’ good in one of the amazing cardigans from MumsHandmade. If you’re a knitwear nut, you have to check out their website.
