TRY THIS - Button Back Spring Green

I found this wool cardigan at the Cancer Research charity shop in Ealing Broadway. The perfect Spring green, this stylish Jaeger staple was Made in England and features all the little details that define the best of the brand. A grosgrain ribbon runs along the inside of the button holes and the buttons themselves are perfect metal petals. 

The great Diane Vreeland of Harper's Bazaar and Vogue always wore her cardigans back to front. Try it, I do, often. Turn them round and wear them like a long sleeve t-shirt - your transformed topper will make a surprisingly stylish exit. I'll pair this one with black crops and pointy flats for a colour block look that's at once contemporary and classic. This richly-hued cardie was a paltry £4.99.

This looks spectacular - I love Jaeger, and I'm far from a 'classic' dresser. Just something about the remarkable attention to detail and lovely fabrics. Total steal :)

Isn't a great colour? I love Jaeger too...a 'new' brand too me me sort of, since moving to London 8 years ago. Very English. It's a great colour block piece...classic gone a little wonky is my style!
