What are Sunday’s for if not being comfortable in cute casual knits?

If there is one garment that seems to be a perpetual staple in my wardrobe (albeit in a range of different colours!) it is The Boyfriend Cardigan. These are great – slip over your PJs for cosy lazy loungewear, or layer on top of a pretty sundress – teamed with woollen tights and boots to look like you just stepped out of a Rowan catalogue (which is something I aspire to most days when I get dressed!).

I think that I might be lost without these versatile knits, I love this chunky grey version from TopShop – there is quite simply nothing in my wardrobe that won’t go with this. So, how about making your own? Check out today’s Style Sunday The Boyfriend Cardigan for inspiration on creating your very own bespoke knit!
