Last night I was watching an episode of Eastenders, because I’m cool and hip, when I noticed the character Bianca sporting a black and pink patterned knitted cardigan. A few moments later my mum commented on the vibrant cardigan stating it looked ‘garish’.. I just laughed along but actually I thought it was really nice and was going to try and Google it after I found out if Max and Tanya were going to get back together.
During Autumn/Winter patterned cardigans became a trend, especially in menswear and with style icons like Tinie Tempah and Labrynth wearing the garments and I think they look retro and chic! I just hope I look more retro-chic than Bianca from Eastenders! I have even started to spot cardigans that are being styled inside-out, like the cardigan pictured right at the top. This gives the garment a vintage feel with the blurred patterns toning down the colours slightly and erasing the sharp knitted paterns, which I think works really well.
