3 reasons to love the long cardigan

12 Oct 2017


It’s a style you throw on without too much thought, a go-to when the weather takes a turn for the worse, a timeless style you can wear for years to come. The long cardigan is our key piece for the autumn-winter transition. Whether it’s in luxurious fibres or a chunky knit, discover why it’s our top pick this season.


1/ It’s easy to wear

Long cardigans are perfect for flattering your form. Easy to put on and take off, they make a great layering piece for any season. Left loose or done up you ask? It’s all a question of shape. If you’re curvy, go for either our Waterfall or Edge to Edge styles. Their flowing lines will shape your curves without hiding your body.

If you have a slim form, why not try an oversized cardigan? When accessorised with a wide belt, this cardigan is perfect when creating a close-fit look.

2/ It’s cosy & comfortable

When you really need to wrap up warm against winter’s chill, nothing beats a soft and cosy, Lambswool Maxi Cardigan. For relaxed, weekend-ready style, why not try layering yours over trousers and leave the last few oversized buttons undone? And If you’re after something luxurious and lovely, why not try our beautiful Relaxed Rib Cardigan in our supersoft Cashmere & Merino yarn?
