Merc cardigan, Topshop jeans, Topshop blouse via charity shop, Topshop ring, Primark pumps
I’m a huge cardigan fan. I love them. My wardrobe is groaning under the weight of all that wool. So when the folks at Merc offered to send me something from their website, I went straight for the Maria cardigan. What else?
I wasn’t familar with Merc until their lovely PR person Rebecca got in touch. She described the range as very ‘This Is England’, and I definitely agree with her. This black and white cardigan has a real 80s mod feel to it, especially when paired with a cute Peter Pan collar blouse. I could’ve gone the whole hog and added chunky DMs and a Lol-style quiff, but I think the patent pumps are more my thing.
What do you think? Do you like that 80s androgynous look (all stone washed denim, plaid shirts and unflattering shoes), or are you more of a fur and florals kinda gal? Do tell.
