If you follow my daily outfit posts, you’ll know that I LOVE a cropped cardigan! I have a vast range of colours in short and long sleeves and find them such a great way to turn a short sleeve dress into something more winter appropriate. My favourite long sleeve cardigans come from both ModCloth and Pinup Girl Clothing but they are the same cardigan.
I first bought the ModCloth Dream Of The Crop Cardigan last winter and quickly fell in love. Having the Black, Red, Green and Navy in my wardrobe makes it easy to match with lots of my dresses!
ModCloth sell these cardigans for US$29 and stocks sizes S-4XL. For the first few I originally bought the size medium according to the measurements on the size chart (I measure 36″ in the bust and 27″ in the waist) With my more recent purchases, I have sized down to a small as there is a lot of stretch and the medium was a little big in the waist.
Recenlty, Pinup Girl Clothing got in a whole bunch of colours! From the pictures on the website, I was convinced they were the same as the ModCloth ones and that was confirmed when they arrived. I ordered the Magenta, Yellow, Light Blue and Mint. They also have the black and a mustard colour. Pinup Girl Clothing are selling them significantly cheaper, at just US$18 but only have sizes Small to Large. With such a considerable amount of stretch though, Ladies who normally wear a 1X or 2X can size down to a large.
The cropped length is perfect over swing dresses and can be buttoned up or left open. The material is lovely and soft and really great quality for the price. I’ve worn my black and red so much and they are still looking good!
These cardigans are such a fantastic wardrobe staple and are such a great price! When you have got lots of colours to pick from, it becomes very easy to match one with your favourite dress or try a new combination and feel like you’ve got a whole new outfit!
Now if Pinup Girl Clothing could just get a purple, I’ll be one happy pinup 😉
