Dressing gown chic: Sonia Rykiel cashmere-blend long-length cardigan

In fairness this is not actually nightwear. It is a cosy, warm cashmere cardigan, ideal for chilly winter days. But you can’t deny that it looks more than a little like the kind of cosy you’d snuggle into after a relaxing bath rather than the kind you’d wear out shopping on a Saturday – because it looks undeniably like a dressing gown!

Being cashmere blend, of course, it comes in at cashmere cost – £1,565, should you have such readies lying around to spend on post-bathing luxury. Or, should you fancy hitting the high street in something that might be mistaken for your robe. And which, as such, might see you barred from your local Tesco

Sonia Rykiel cashmere-blend long-length cardigan, £1,565 from Net-a-Porter.

    Wow! I can’t believe anyone would be fooled into wearing this as a sweater, when it’s so clearly just a fancy bathrobe! 😮
