Save or Splurge: purple cardigans

Purple_cardigansIn comparing these two cardigans, we have to admit up front that we’re not technically comparing like with like, because one is 95% cashmere, while the other is a cotton/nylon mix. (No prizes for guessing which is which). The styles are broadly similar though: these are the so-called “girlfriend” cardigans (or “boyfriend” cardigans if you prefer) so beloved of The Fashion Police. We’ll be wearing these all winter over skinny jeans and dresses, but we have to admit, we’re much more likely to be spending £22 than £485 on them, cashmere or not.

What about you? Which of these two cardigans would you buy, assuming that you’d buy either of them? Do you think a basic cardi is worth splashing the cash on, or is it something you look to buy cheap and wear out? Or, to put it another way: would you save or splurge?
