Weekly Wish List | In Defence of the Cardigan

J.Crew Jackie Cardigan


1. J.Crew cardigan | 2. Dinny Hall earrings | 3. Warehouse dress | 4. Gift Boutique flute glass | 5. Aquazzura flats | 6. J Brand jeans | 7. Reiss top | 8. James Read tanning sculpting duo | 9. H&M skirt


No one in the history of fashion has ever got particularly excited about the humble cardigan. It’s not a sexy item of clothing, and even the word “cardigan” is a bit of a passion-killer. But they’re such reliable wardrobe staples, so I think it’s time we gave them a bit of love.

I’m currently coveting the palm-print J.Crew Jackie cardigan, which is perfect for breezy summer evenings. It comes in two colour-ways – black and ivory, plus wisteria and coral – and would look so chic thrown over a cotton sundress or a silk camisole top. And that’s why it’s topping this week’s wish list.

Also on my radar are Dinny Hall’s rose gold bamboo hoop earrings (Dinny is the queen of hoops), Warehouse’s expensive-looking lace dress and James Read’s contouring set. I haven’t tried the bronzing and highlighting compact yet, but the mineral powder is infused with a self-tanning agent, which sounds really interesting. Let me know your verdict if you give it a go…
