Fashion Union // Black Checked Cardigan

As the weather gets colder I've been looking for more and more warm and cosy fashion pieces that will stop me freezing throughout the next few months. I've personally always found it difficult to look nice and stay warm so finding cute jumpers and cardigans is a must for me at this time of year. I've come to love fashion and I don't want that to change just because it is cold, wet and windy!



One of the cardigans that I've been loving recently is this Fashion Union Black Checked Cardigan*, it has quickly become my favourite A/W Cardigan!

I'm not one to follow trends much but I can't deny that I've been feeling slightly trendier when sporting this checked fashion piece, it isn't quite tartan but it is close enough for my liking! I'm wearing the size Medium as I wanted it to be a little oversized and it is a perfect fit with enough space to layer tops underneath. Also I have very long arms so when I tried this on and the arm length was perfect I was over the moon, I find it so difficult to find tops/jumpers/cardigans that are long enough in arm length for me!

The material is so thick and warm as well, I've been wearing this with just a short sleeve top underneath and it has been keeping me really cosy and warm, when it gets a bit colder I can just put a long sleeve top underneath and a thin jacket over the top. I think layering is definitely key when it comes to A/W and this is the perfect basic item to have in your wardrobe to layer with, it goes with everything. You can wear it with leggings and a basic top for a casual day at home or with a pretty dress and flats for a shopping trip or meal out!

It's £22 which at first I thought was a little expensive for a basic checked cardigan but it definitely feels like it should cost more than £22 so it's a bargain, still cheaper than the likes of Topshop as well!

I'd definitely recommend you go over and take a look at the Fashion Union website!
