FASHION - The Comfy, Cable Knit Cosy


I've officially found it. The warmest, most comfortable cardigan in the world and with the way the weather has been, it came just at the right time.

In the pics, I'm wearing the cable cosy by Isabella Oliver 365. You might remember I featured Holly Willoughby wearing their orange zip dress recently so the brand has definitely got some celeb fans. I managed to get my hands on this cardi after the lovely peeps at Isabella Oliver asked if I'd like tot try something out for myself and I said 'of course'. I wasn't disappointed when it arrived beautifully wrapped and boxed - always nice as it make opening your parcel feel like opening a birthday present - with a free tote bag.

The cardigan is made from the softest 'extrafine' merino wool which you won't find itchy in the slightest. The cardigan is wrap around with no buttons or fastening so you can wear it open for casual style or belt it to show off your figure. For taller people this might end up being just past knee-length, but If you're short, like me, it will come down to your calves. The sleeves are super long too so roll them up like I have in this pic.


The best thing about this piece though is its versatility. Wear it belted at the waist and it's a rather stylish coatigan, throw it over your PJs on a Sunday morning and it's a luxurious dressing gown, wear it under your coat and you'll be warm all day in the snowy, winter weather. I've actually just thrown my other long cardigan in the pile for the charity shop because it just doesn't compare with the softness of this one and there's no way now that I'm going back.


 The cable cosy costs £139 and you can buy online.
