As promised, here is my review of the next category in my wardrobe – cardigans. There was a time, not too long ago, when I did not own any cardigans. However, I have discovered the versatility of this particular item, especially light-weight ones in our mild climate.
I bought these 3 identical cardigans at Uniqlo in Japan when we there on holidays in 2009.They are a fine cotton knit which is perfect for trans-seasonal wear and in the airconditioned office during summer.
This gold-coloured lacy knit cardigan is perfect for wearing over sleeveless summer tops.
Here is a 3/4 sleeve red cardigan which is also useful for trans-seasonal wear. It goes well with my predominately red/black wardrobe.
My only true winter cardigan is this turquoise woollen one. I bought it in Tasmania several years ago. It is beautifully soft, warm merino wool which is grown and processed in Oatlands, Tasmania.
I have one other cardigan which is an older black one. It lives on the back of my chair at work for whenever the airconditioning becomes unreasonably cold. If it wasn’t for this role it would be in the op shop.
The beige Uniqlo cardigan is the least appealing in terms of colour and does not get worn as much as the others. The final analysis is that the beige one may go. All of the others are worn regularly and fit with the main colours of my wardrobe.
I only have cardigans. they are easy to get off and jumpers make me look fatter. Cardigans cover up the bumps. I have red cardigans too. DH likes them because he can find me in the shopping centre easily.
Very valid points about the benefits of cardigans.
