Style on Trial: Louise Goldin long sleeve cardigan

One_sleeve_cardigan

Just one look at this Louise Goldin cardigan, and we start fidgeting in our seats and fussing around trying to straighten our imaginary, wonky-hemmed clothes. And we just know that if we actually wore it, our mum’s would spend the day telling us that our buttons were done up wrong, and when were we going to straighten them.

The fact that this cardigan has actually tried to recreate that uncomfortable feeling of buttons-in-the-wrong-holes deliberately, then, is puzzling to us. The fact that it does this whilst also having only one sleeve, puzzles us even more. One sleeved dresses we can understand. One sleeved pieces of knitwear, though? Not really, no.

The cardigan in question is £499 from Browns. Is it a crime of fashion, though, or would you let it walk free?

    Is there really any question? That cardigan (if you can actually call it that) is just screaming to be arrested.

    The price alone should be reason enough to arrest it for crime of fashion

    I mean, I don’t know. I actually quite like it, but the bold print, mismatched hem, one sleeve, and strip at the top together make me agree with you. Actually, those last two apart are pretty terrible – I would make it myself, omitting them or using a higher neck to keep the cute wood button trio.
