What do you think of this Cardigan?

(35 Posts)

I have some Christmas money to spend and I really like this cardigan here

Do you think its Mumsy? I love the colour (chutney).

Depends what you mean by "good", Gobblers . I go through phases of loving the wholesome, homespun granny-knits look grin. Not so much now, but a couple of years ago I'd have been all over a cardi like that. I'd wear it with skinny jeans, chunky boots, glossy hair and dramatic eye make-up. On the other hand, I think some of the items raved about on S&B are hideous tat.

That said, Seasalt are not edgy or fashionable, they have a lot of smocky things favoured by my mum and sweatshirts, and the styling of the models is often rubbish. So I can see where the naysayers are coming from.

I think the combination of short, chunky knit and boxy shape will automatically exclude the item as flattering on most people's bodies. I'm thinking the only person who would suit this is size 6, needs a bit of chunking up and has fantastic autumn colouring.

The colour is great, but nothing else is. The models look pretty shit in it in all the colours.

I'm not sure Seasalt make anything for anyone who wants to look good, the are fantastic at making clothes that are comfy, practical and well made.

(Apologies to all the Seasalt lovers)

My nan has something similar. She's 76.

Oh I'm sorry OP but it's really not to my taste at all! It looks like something Victoria wood would wear in a sketch (no offence VW who is more glam in real life)

Nooooooo. Shapeless lump of chutney.

I like it in Cedar a lot (but just noticed it's not reduced in this colour)! Not mad about the Chutney.

Seasalt knits are brilliant but you do need to be careful what you wear them with.

I actually thought when I saw the thread title that this would be about Seasalt psychic

It's lovely. I like all the colours.

It's horrible.

I like it, but non of the colours. It's Seasalt, it will last forever.

CaroBeaner Sun 05-Jan-14 17:54:37

I love it!

fivegolddeblooms Sun 05-Jan-14 17:52:47

I think it looks like diarrhoea, sorry.

beatofthedrum Sun 05-Jan-14 17:51:14

I'm afraid I don't either.

PastaandCheese Sun 05-Jan-14 17:47:42

Personally I don't like it.

It's awful. Really, really awful and I love cardigans.

lurkingaround Sun 05-Jan-14 17:41:07

I don't like it. At all. Sorry. I can't imagine it looking non-frumpy.

Get it in cedar, it's lovely.

The chutney? No no no no. The colour changes the cardigan completely for me, it looks dated, drab and quite ugly in chutney. The silver's too lifeless for me. But the cedar is rich and classic.

Twinklestein Sun 05-Jan-14 17:26:43

I think it's less mumsy in the other colours - the cedar or the silver.

I couldn't pull it off, I think it may work best on teen/early 20s ingenue types with a Bloomsbury print dress and biker boots. (Or 60something artists).

What about the Kelsey cardigan @ Fatface?

I cant link to it, but its easy found in their knits section.

Absolutely hate it, sorry. It looks like the sort of thing my (morbidly obese) RE teacher would have worn.

It looks boxy, doesn't look boxy on the model but it could be pinned back. I think there are more flattering cardis out there tbh.

Fairylea Sun 05-Jan-14 15:00:13

Love it!

vestandknickers Sun 05-Jan-14 14:57:00

Its lovely. Buy it!

Ifancyashandy Sun 05-Jan-14 14:55:52

Ooh. No. I would think I were faced with a woman who had 'given up' on clothes if I saw someone wearing that. Not my taste at all. And the colour reminds me of baby poo.

But the again, I think that of all cardigans. Nasty things.
