Navy Cardigan?

(14 Posts)

Can anyone find me a long (boyfirend style) navy cardigan?
I though this would be easy to find, but obviously not!
I need a size 18, and I don't want to spend loads (upto about £50).

All help very appreciated!

I had some recommended on another thread from Zara - not online, but instore and £15-£30. Uniqlo have a nice looking one online for £29.99 - linen/silk blend.

I have a really nice waterfall cardi in navy blue from Tesco. Came with a thin brown belt which I sometimes use. It's nice thin material too <sticks tongue out at waterfall haters>

This one. I don't trust the UV stuff, too gimmicky.

thanks for the suggestions, waterfall is really not me.
the uniqlo ones look ok, but rather strangely that linen blend material always smells of bad fish to me (i think it is my nose rather than the material) so I can't wear it! Will have a look in Zara any other ideasplease?

Nancy - I know exactly what you mean about the fishy smell of silk linen blends!! v odd. Glad its not just me.

PARTYHATS - nice to know i'm not the only person with a strange sense of smell!

I an going to bluewater tomorrow so hopefully I will find something - I thought a navy cardi would be easy

I got a linen one recently from White Company for around £50 with the discount, it's long but edge to edge not boyfriend. The XL is fine on me and I'm an 18. If blue was alright then Poetry and Wrap both have some. Also try phase 8 as they do lots of navy. Assume you've checked Boden?

This one? I have a lovely cardi from this company, much nicer than the slightly frumpy picture indicated. In stock within 2 weeks if thats any good?
