Mullet Gathered back cardigan at Next

Next gathered back mesh waterfall cardigan Yes, folks, it’s the mother of all mullet garments: innocuous black cardigan in the front, strange butterfly fancy dress costume in the back.  Add to the lack of a proper back that the fact that it is practically see through, and it is going to be a long while before it is warm enough to use this as your cover up. 

What do you think, though? If you can see the benefits of a cardi like this though, or you just have a penchant for dressing up as a butterfly, it will cost you £32 here.

    What are they thinking? As if Mullet hair wasn’t bad enough…

    I don’t think this is too bad. I agree that this isn’t winter apparel but I know several people that have worn this style in the early fall over softly cut dresses or elegant tops.

    I also don’t think this is too bad. Might I also add that it’s only winter in the Northern Hemisphere. Let’s not be too Europe/America-centric here, OK?
    The “mullet” bit in the title made me giggle though. 😀

      Well, we’re based in the Northern Hemisphere, and the site is aimed at a predominantly UK/American audience – we can’t please everyone, unfortunately, but happily there are lots of other blogs out there to cover the products and areas we don’t!

    I actually like it. And seeing as it’s Summer here in Australia it’s totally wearable in this weather.

    Wouldn’t that be a reverse mullet though? Or a pob? Can imagine it would be good for summer though.

    I would have liked this… if it could actually covered ALL of my back. Oh, and minus the ruching. 🙂

    I kinda like this too! 😀 it seems perfect for the weather here where it’s hot outside but cold (okay, air-conditioned but still cold) inside – the back looks like it can spice up a simple tank and shorts combi
