Trend alert: Cardigans
There's no mistaking that nip in the air. Despite the hazy sunshine we're feeling the chill and that means...cardigans! But the humble cardi has had a makeover. Instead of being a mere afterthought, this time around it's a firm fashion favourite in its own right. Three ways to wear:
*Layer two clashing-coloured V-necks together - one shrunken and buttoned-up, the other boyfriend-sized and worn unbuttoned on top with sleeves pushed up.
*Make like a lady and wear your fine-knit cardi cape-style draped around the shoulders. Accessorise with wrist-length gloves and a grown-up handbag.
*Soften a rudeboy jeans-and-button-down-shirt outfit with a girly cardigan. Try the new Commes Des Garcons for H&M fitted spotty ones due to arrive on 13th November. Add a bow tie or old school specs for added sweet-geek charm.
