Spring is definitely cardigan season.
Too warm for big jumpers and coats, but too cold for Summer frocks the cardigan finds it’s natural home on warm spring days. I am of course aware that it’ll be snowing again by this afternoon, but the last few days have definitely given us a taste of warmer weather to come!
I wear a lot of long line cardigans, belted at the waist for a 30s inspired look, but the easiest way to get a vintage inspired cover up on the High Street is to look for waist length cardigans with pretty detailing and long or 3/4 length sleeves. The sensible way to do it is to pick plain colours like cream or white for spring, that will go with lots of things and don’t draw too much attention to themselves.
I’ve found some great High Street picks for the sensible option, but I couldn’t quite resist some of the crazy prints I found, so I’ve thrown some of them in for good measure. They might not be authentically vintage style, but they’re kinda cool…..
