Here is a John Smedley cardigan featured in Glamour magazine in 2002. I absolutely love the simplicity of this look, the cardigan teamed with the box pleated skirt, pointed kitten heels and a slick ponytail ticks all the boxes. This outfit gets me very excited for Spring and simple summer styling.

Paul Weller not wearing one but TWO John Smedley sweaters, he really does look the bizz. Weller has styled his Blackwell cardigan in Vintage Denim with the 1002HGRB shirt, a cracking combination. Paul completed this look with ‘Stanhope’ loafers from Delicious Junction, a brand that credit the relationship between music and fashion to the very heart of their business, definitely worth checking them out.

Gemma’s getting in the mood today wearing heart earrings and a heart top…what better cardigan to wear over this fabulously valentine’s inspired outfit, than Keal. A refreshed version of ‘Nettle’ Keal is a long sleeved v-neckline cardigan made from 30 gauge extra-fine New Zealand Merino Wool.
Have a truly romantic day!
Love the John Smedley Team
A trend that is massive for Spring/Summer 2011, the stripe. Wide, thin, horizontal, vertical, the stripe is sure to dominate every wardrobe for the forthcoming season. Autumn/Winter saw this season’s bestseller Iggy, a graded colour stipe that flew off the shelves. Applicable to both womenswear and menswear, Spring/Summer is stripetastic.
From red carpet stripes to casual chic, Spring/Summer will not dissapoint with John Smedley offering modest stiped cuffs to all striped sweaters in a beautiful array of colours. There’s a stripe on offer for all body shapes and silhouettes with the position of the stripe vital, seen to conture the body and flatter.
Colourful stripes create a fun, youthful look. Ladies, a playful way to incoperate this trend is mixing a thick stripe with dots for a true 70’s vibe whilst thinner stripes offer a simplistic, clean look. Why not incooperate a contrast in stripe, thin horizontal next to dominant stripes for massive visual impact.
This trend is sure to brighten up anyones wardrobe and there is longevity to this look. Stripes have already stood the test of the time, appearing season upon season so invest in your signature stripe.
The ever changing weather means getting dressed in the morning is all that bit more difficult. We’ve spoke about layering before and cardigans are the perfect way to complete any look. Cardigans are set to take over every male wardrobe this Autumn/Winter with the popularity of the cardigan set to grow.
People of all ages are able to take on this trend, choosing lighter cardigans that can be worn underneath your coat or a heavier cardigan to wear over a t-shirt. ‘Harding’ our luxurious merino wool cardigan, has a collar and is perfect to wear over t-shirts or pullovers as a jacket.
This is a classic cardigan that is a true investment piece. For a younger look, you can try ‘Marmaduke’ made from merino wool. Countless features across editorials prove that ‘Harding’ is a hit this season and ‘Daimler’ a staple in creating the ‘preppy’ look. Hurry and get yours fast and you can get your hands on the cardigan that everyone’s lusting over.
The number one talked about cardigan this season, Iggy. ‘Iggy’ has featured in countless editorials over the past few months and it is set to remain a John Smedley favourite. Iggy will love to be worn over your favourite t-shirt and jean combo or underneath your snuggly winter coat. The boyfriend fit of the cardigan allows for a truly comfortable fit and should you be worried (like I am) about horizontal stripes, fear not! The colours graded on the cardigan offers a flattering stripe, from dark to light, hem to shoulder line.
Yesterday in the Nottingham area the weather was to say the least very changeable! So on venturing out to support my other halves Sunday football team I was torn between the beautiful sunshine and the dark clouds looming in the distance. I whimped out and decided although the sun was warm a cardigan was still necessary. I grabbed my trusty Carina cardigan in Silver and threw in on over my casual jeans and vest top.
Strolling along to the park whilst noshing a strawberry cornetto was delightful and I briefly regretted bringing along the cardigan which I then thought I’d have to carry rather than wear, for the duration. But no! As soon as I found a comfortable viewing spot on a nearby bench the clouds blew in and I found myself rapidly buttoning up. Phew!
After the match a couple of ‘nearly at the top of the table’ drinks were in order and I am pleased to say a couple of cardigan compliments followed.
