Sequinned cardigans: Wear them Well.

Amber Le Bon Wallis CardiganHello! 🙂

A couple of months ago, Amber Le Bon wore a pretty, sequinned cardigan from Wallis in a way that absolutely rocked it. Doing wonders, not only by revamping the brand but also the humble cardi itself. I don’t know about you but whenever I used to think about sequinned cardigans, I though about mature ladies on cruise ships or great aunts at weddings. Amber however, showed us the way forward but putting her sequinned cardi on back-to-front translating it into a AW09 wardrobe staple.

I absolutely loved this look when I saw it and I’ve been thinking about doing the same ever since. It’s about time I went for it, I’m thinking that the cardi has to have sequins all over it, has to be fitted and either cropped or to the hip. I can’t have a collar or any pocket detailing, we want to look a la mode, not a la madhouse! To give the look that extra wow factor, wear it with only one or two buttons fastened; either to hide the bra straps or, to stop the top from falling off, just fasten the top button.

Here are some of the best on the high street:AW09 Sequinned Cardigans Clockwise from top left: 1. All over sequin knit jacket £135 Karen Millen. 2. Gold Sequinned Cropped Cardi £35 Topshop. 3. Butterfly by Matthew Williamson for Debenhams Sequinned Cardi £60. 4.THE Black and sliver sequin cardigan €91 Wallis. 5. Petite Black Sequin Shrug £40 Debenhams.

Yours,

      She is stunning isn’t she! She seems really sweet and quite young too whenever you see her interviewed which is so refreshing.
      Funnily enough I don’t think that that cardi it is from her mums range for Wallis… It probably belonged to her mum and she just borrowed it for that night!
