Cardis for Autumn

The one main item I'm coveting for Autumn is a grey boyfriend cardigan. I've seen a ladies version in Marks and Spencer for £25, but it is thinner than what I preferred, although the style is nice. I also liked in the mens section a grey lambswool one, very similiar to picture 3 below. The pictures I've shown are all from Gap.com and I'm hoping these will be available in the UK branches, as these are the ones I like best. I am going to try and thrift for one first, but getting brand new from Gap or Marks and Spencer generally assures quality, so I may bite the bullet and treat myself to a brand new one-whoo hoo!!


Elbow length sleeve grey boyfriend cardi

I really like this one, very unusual sleeve details, plus I like the stripes!!


I like this one, a classic which will never date, although there are no pockets-the mens M&S one is practically the same, but does have pockets.

I'm sure you'll win the thrifting challenge on this one! I got my b/friend cardi at Zara - I grabbed it when I saw it back in mid July and I popped in today to check even more new stock and the one I got has gone. I reckon these cardies are a season winner.

Forgot to mention how lovely your boys are too on your Eastbourne post!

Hi kate-In the last 6 months I've seen quite a few boyfriend style cardis whilst thrifting, but as it was coming up to summer then, I just left them behind-duh!! Now, it will be typical that I don't see any-I should have done what you did!! I am hankering after something from Gap, so I might pop in there by the weekend and see what they have to offer! Thanks for your lovely comment about the boys too!

I'm so obsessed with cardi's right now. great finds!

AsianCajuns said...

Oh I love the middle one too! That sleeve detail is what sold me. Urban Outfitters has an interesting preppy cardi that has stripes on the arm and a crest patch that I'm eying.

Wendy said...

I really want one of those long slouchy ones.

Siljesfashion said...

Love them all!! Want them all!! haha. story of my life. Have a wonderful weekend, lovely!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Wendy-I think that proves that grey is definitely a good investment choice.

Hi savvy-yes, indeed, just got to get the right one now!!

Hi kamel-thanks for stopping by with your lovely comment!

Hi alison-heres hoping they're in the UK branches!!

Hi asian cajuns-yes, I'm very tempted to get this one-there are some great styles out there, though!!

Hi wendy-yes, me too-definitely!

Hi Silje-haha, I'd love all 3 too-maybe a new one and a thrifted one will suffice!! Have a lovely weekend, dear Silje!

Sydney Speel said...

whenever i get sweaters, i try to get gray ones.

just because it's such a neutral colour.

i really like the 3rd one!

if you get that, go to a fabric store, and sew patches onto the elbows!

it looks REALLY cute aftwards!

bronwyn said...

Those are all lovely - for me it would be a hard choice between the striped one and the bottom one.

Jaimie @ Just Kiss 'N Makeup said...
