Bloody hell it shouldn't be this hard. I swear to god I used to be able to get these without even thinking.
I need one or two v necked fine knit jumpers for work which I can either wear under jackets or with shirts under. I can't really afford cashmere and can't wear wool. Ideally it would be a cotton blend but at this stage I'd take anything which lasts beyond a wash and doesn't squeak.
I thought the tricky bit would be that I need a colour - green or purple or teal rather than a neutral. I don't really want red as I have a red coat and a red work dress and fancied a change. However I can find a reasonable amount of colours just not v necks.
I know lots of people swear by uniqlo but the colours are really wrong for me as I need something bright (their purple seems to be a maroon purple whereas I need a bright one).
I went into every shop i could find today including John Lewis. I have tried the supermarkets. I have had woolovers before but they never fit me right. I haven't tried Zara or mango yet. The only possible I have seen is the Tilly jumper in Boden but it's £50 which is more than I want to spend unless I can get a really good code.
Thanks for all the suggestions, will look through.
I've had men's jumpers before for casual but I'm little - only 5 3 with a short body so they don't really fit, even the extra small ones. I need quite fitted for this purpose.
M&s was awful btw. I said to dh did it, it may be a bit rubbish but at least it will something that basic - no. Only a 'super soft' i.e. Really low quality squeaky acrylic effort in a washed out navy. They had a few ok coloured polo necks and I tried one just to prove I didn't suit them. I didn't.
