I had wanted one of these shaggy cardigans for ages. It got to the stage where i was quizing people about their Nanny’s knitting skills. Not that many brands where doing them and the ones who where well the price was just outta the question. Of course Penneys saved the day. I was so chuffed that i was straight in after a hospital trip to nab myself and my sister one. I’ve been wearing both colours since. Firstly with jeans and boots but mostly with a t-shirt, leggings and vans. Casual but extra. They are so cosy. Warm but they don’t suffocate you. Not as bulky as a big coat either which i love as the sweatiest person in Ireland.
Naturally they flew out. When i posted the pic above on Instagram , the messages flooded in asking where these shaggy knits still in stock? Not that i have seen of late but i did know of other brands who where running styles. I said i would put together a post linking all of the options i could find. Boohoo and PLT have a great selection and generally have discounts running daily. Nasty Gal have a few colours and styles including maxi lengths and waistcoats. Hello festival season. They too run serious discounts so you could nab a bargain not too far off the Primark price. New Look have the most beautiful pink toned looped cardi and i have an outfit in mind for it. I put it together below, i couldn’t help myself.
Ways To Wear Shaggy Cardigans
There are so many ways to wear these statement knits but behind the texture they are just a cardi so can be worn so much. Be it dressy or casual it works. I featured the look above over a slip dress in my post on wearing silk nightdresses as regular dresses. They make a good alternative to fur so could be worn on a night out or left on in the pub as part of your outfit. I’ve done this with a t-shirt tucked into a leather skirt, tights and boots. It just adds another level and i love how it looks. Very 70’s glam rock. Size wise my large is huge on me. It’s knitwear so i’d try a Large if you are plus. You don’t need it to close so it could work.
