And please ignore the insane price.

That is lovely - I would wear it over a shirt with jeans, or a dress. Bit surprised they are trying to sell a 50% acrylic cardy for that much though.

Over a shirt with jeans is a good idea. I'm so unimaginative at putting outfits together and I usually hate cardis - I seem to choose ones that look so floppy and meh. But I really like the style of this one.

I love a nice cardy!

SalmonRusty Sat 20-Oct-12 15:38:55

Where do you get yours from Dexter? I wear short dresses all the time (because I'm so rubbish at separates!) and would like to be able to wear my sleeveless ones in winter with a chunky warm cardigan over them.

Anywhere really - mostly Uniqlo, Zara, Gap and Brora.

black skirt, knee length, pencil.
(underneath just a vest top)
black tights
tan knee boots. (or black if you daren't do tan)

I love cardies too.. i normally get mine from Zara, but they're usually plain.

Frontpaw Sat 20-Oct-12 15:48:02

Probably nothing as I couldn't afford anything else!

Slim fit jeans, or over a mini(ish) skirt with heavy tights and brogues. Or moleskin trousers (I looooove moleskin, o moley moley).

SalmonRusty Sat 20-Oct-12 15:49:43

Yeah, I'm not going to get that one, especially as it's half acrylic. But I want one like it!

Ooh, I can definitley see it with brogues Frontpaw smile

Thank you, you are all helping me get over my cardi phobia!

That's lovely Op.
I'd wear it with a shortish skirt and wooly tights too. With a vest top underneath.
It's sooo expensive though.

Oooh like that very much! Think I'd wear it with skinnies or velvet crops (someone posted a link to a pair of v nice Next trousers the other day). Were I younger I'd also try it with pretty scarf rolled at the neck/shorts/opaque tights/brogues... but the spectre of mutton-lamb glares at me every time I open the wardrobe these days.

I like cardis... Great for layering in this weird weather!

If you can get over the name, M+S are doing really comfy jeggings in nice autumnal colours. They look like trousers- well they are really (flies and pockets).

Ah, I live in York where the Coggles shop is - they have some fabulous items in their window displays.

SalmonRusty Sat 20-Oct-12 16:06:40

I live just outside York minty. For some reason I hadn't connected the website with the shop. D'oh!

SalmonRusty Sat 20-Oct-12 16:10:11

Would it be totally boring and pointless to wear it with indigo skinny jeans and a naice vest top?

SalmonRusty Sat 20-Oct-12 16:13:39

And I have another question - would that green go with navy?

LadyBeagleEyes Sat 20-Oct-12 16:16:36

Yes to skinnies.
And yes to navy too.

SalmonRusty Sat 20-Oct-12 17:06:52

Good! Then I am in the market for a forest green cable cardi grin

A line or pencil knee length tweedy or plaid skirt, opaque tights that pick up another colour line in the tweed, tan slouchy knee boots, well starched stiff collared white shirt, tan leather satchel.
