This £42 Cardigan Is a Bit of an Insider Secret

Thick cable-knit jumpers are definitely the kind of piece you want to wrap up with when it's freezing outside, but they have a tendency to look a little dishevelled if they're not rendered in the correct colour or yarn—no one wants a shapeless sack. Hurrah, then, for River Island's must-have pink cardigan, aka the oversize style of dreams. It's heavy, hangs down just below the waist, has a bit of a statement sleeve, and is in the It colour of the past couple of years: pink.

But if you want proof that it's as good as we say it is, you need only look at the plethora of influencers who have been snapping it on Instagram. From wearing it with a white tee and grey track pants to just throwing it over a black jumpsuit, this is one wintry item you don't want to miss out on, and it's finally back in stock. Keep scrolling for inspiration on how to style yours; then shop it immediately. (PS: It also comes in grey.)

Style Notes: Wearing this with jeans is always an option. Leopard-print boots are an even better idea.
