In between seasons – The humble cardigan

In between seasons - The humble cardigan

In between seasons the humble cardigan comes into its own. August is always a tricky time of year with regards to our wardrobes. It is still quite warm here in London with a lot of rain about, yet it feels a bit early to start unpacking my heavier woollies.

As I write this post I am wearing a pair of white cotton trousers teamed with a navy tee, and as it is early in the morning and still a little chilly, I have added a lightweight pink cardigan.

Easy to pop on at any time of the day or evening. You can also roll up a cardi and pack it into a holdall if you are going to a friend’s garden for a social distancing get together.

I particularly like the combination of a simple cami underneath a lightweight cardigan. I often wear this combination at this time of year.

For this post I have put together both a warm and cool collage to inspire you to consider how you might add a cardigan to items that are already in your wardrobe.

    Cardigans are a crucial part of my wardrobe except on the hottest of days. I feel like I can always add one to my closet!

    Have lots of cardigans….and always have one with me as stores and restaurants ( when open) were always so cold…air conditioning was freezing! Have a spare in the car for when grocery shopping…
