Looking for definitive Navy Cardigan for winter

(12 Posts)

I'd like it to be dark navy, stylish (I used to have one years ago by GUESS that was in a biker jacket style and I loved it). It should look fabulous over a crisp white shirt with jeans and boots. But it should indicate I DO give a toss about fashion.

I don't mind spending a bit on it as it will be a work winter wardrobe basic. Has anyone come across anything fabulous? I'm a 12-14 but I have baby belly so do not want anything remotely cropped. grin

boyfriend stylee??

zara, £19

Seriously expensive (but quite cute, though maybe not for over a white shirt)
Still ££ but slightly less expensive.
Bit lighter than navy.
Not convinced any of these are right, though.

too baggy?

This is rather nice, and a bit of a bargain.

Thanks ladies. Really like that Paul and Joe one Jackieno - probably most my kind of style <determines how she can purchase online without DH raising both eyebrows and his blood pressue> The longer, boyfriend stylee (less structured) won't flatter me I'm afraid (arse) - The principles one looks lovely but a bit too pretty for me.

YOu might find some other ideas on this thread.

How about this ? I know it looks black, and it says blue, but it is navy (they also do one in royal blue). I have just bought a couple in different colours for work, but they look great with jeans as well - it's the sort of thing I live in during the winter.

Hmm, it's nice, but possibly a bit too ladylike for moi. smile
