Statement knitwear is having a real moment, and more specifically, statement cardigans are flooding retailers and our Instagram feeds alike.
Colour blocking, clashing colours and bold patterns – statement cardis are an easy way to add interest to an outfit with minimal styling effort. Simply throw on over a t-shirt and jeans and decide whether you want it buttoned up or down!
One statement cardi we’re seeing all over social media at the moment is this New Look dogtooth cardigan, available in monochrome or pink check with a V neckline, gem buttons, ribbed trim and long cuffed sleeves – the perfect transitional piece to see you through to spring/ summer.
Influencers can be seen styling the houndstooth cardigan in many different ways, showing how versatile the cardigan is – with a black oversized coat, skinny jeans and trainers; with high-rise jeans and kitten heels; buttoned down with leather-look leggings and white trainers; or thrown over a statement collar blouse with a black mini skirt, tights and gold accessories.
Since posting the item on their Instagram profile, New Look customers have been obsessing over the checkered knit, with comments such as: ‘LOVE that cardigan’, ‘I am deeply in love with this look’, ‘this outfit is incredibleeeee’ and ‘this cardigan is cute!’
We’d opt for the black and white colour way and wear ours with loose leather trousers and layered over a black polo neck in the winter; or over a lace-trimmed vest with a monochrome midi skirt in the summer.
Best of all, the dogtooth cardigan is currently 25 per cent off in the New Look sale for a limited time only – best be quick though, we predict a sell out!
