Thrift Inspiration, Aran Style

Chunky knits are perfect for winter and Aran knits have always been in style, Topshop have this one available now for £48

I was lucky enough to thrift my Aran cardigan in the Salavation Army charity shop back in September, I laundered it and put it away, knowing it would come out in the colder weather:

Its been quite mild this week, so I've not needed a coat and layered my vintage Levis shirt and LBD with the cardigan and my black over the knee boots

My cardigan was only £2.99 and it washed up well with no shrinkage either, so I'm sure it will be a keeper in the wardrobe for a while.

What knit will you be investing in this winter?

I love the top shop sweater, but I like the price of your thrifted sweater better!

Dear Sharon, I love aran cardigans. I haven't had one since I was a kid. The Top Shop one is lovely but yet again you've found an amazing bargain that looks fabulous! You have a very good eye. Hope you're having a great weekend xx

I'm wearing a cardigan this morning! Feels SO good. I like the buttons on yours & the layers you're sporting it with! (I always forget about layering until I'm reminded!)

Louise said...

I too am loving Aran knits this winter. I managed to find a gorgeous one second hand, which is sitting on my washing line this minute. There'll be no chills for me this winter. I love your cardy.

Vintage Vixen said...

That Aran cardi looks lovely on you, very classic cut and shape. There's Aran madness at the moment, the vintage shops are charging £45 for horrible shrunken ones, you got a real bargain. xxx

I have a big snuggly cream cardi too, although it's not cabled :( But it cost me £3! Bargain.

Well found! I feel dreadful that over the years I've lost 2 aran jumpers both knitted by my dad!!

Smashingbird said...

I want some really simple classic knitwear, I've heard good things about uniqlo - so I think I'll give them a try.

I've been looking for the perfect chunky cardi myself. Hopefully I'll have some luck thrifting! Love your layers.

I loooove Aran cardigans! Unfortunately they never look good on me since I'm top-heavy, but I wish I could wear them as well as you. :o)

I'm on a hunt for some sweaters this winter myself, but in finer knits. I just ordered a Free People one which I adored (and it went on clearance!) online, though it's backordered. But I'm on the lookout for more knits. Definitely need them in my wardrobe.

Hi everyone-thank you so much for your kind and lovely comments, as always, so much appreciated!! xx

Sarah wants one of these so badly. We looked at the Topshop one, but it's all synthetic. I bet yours is REAL wool. Exactly what I'm looking for! (can't believe I gave a cardigan like this to Oxfam 2 years ago...) xo
