Pairing with Dresses

The key to choosing the perfect cardigan to match your dress is looking at the different colours within the design. If your dress has a blooming floral print with teal and rose pink throughout, then the perfect colour to pair with this look would be teal or rose pink! Review releases new cardigans every season that are thoughtfully designed to match all the latest prints. This allows you to create a perfectly colour coordinate look every time! You can even take the look to another level by adding on a matching coloured belt (because why not!?). It's totally up to you whether you want to opt for an open cardigan look (generally a more relaxed approach) or button the cardigan closed for a neat and polished look.

This is where classic colours of black, navy, cream and red are going to come into play. Think about choosing a shade that you can tie in to match with something else in your office outfit. If you are opting for a black pencil skirt or tailored pant, a matching black cardigan is perfect for a professional look. You can choose to add some contrast by playing with different prints or colours in your blouse or accessories.

Classic colours tend to give a more professional look in the workplace and also make it super easy to get dressed in the morning knowing that your cardigan can easily mix and match with your other workwear items.

How to Care for Your Cardigan

How to Care for Your Cardigan

Your cardigan has been made with high quality viscose and nylon blend. Follow this easy care guide to ensure your knits stay in "good as new" condition forever.

  • Since you'll be wearing your cardigan time and time again, some pilling may occur in areas of high friction (such as under the arm). This is a natural occurrence in luxury fabrics and can be easily maintained with a pilling comb.
  • Be careful to protect your beloved cardigan from pulls when wearing jewelry, brooches or handling any sharp items such as y our keys. The tightness of the knit structure will make it hard to create a pull in the knit, but it's always a good idea to be conscious of anything sharp that might catch on the fabric.
  • Make sure to neatly fold and store your cardigan flat (no hanging!). This is going to protect the shape of your cardigan and ensure there is no over-stretching.
