Winter Warmers: Anthropologie’s Defy-The-Odds Sweater Jacket

milatary style Anthropologie cardigan

As regular readers will already know, your Chief of Police suffers from the unfortunate condition of Being Constantly Freezing. One of our favourite solutions to this situation, which can create serious havoc with the fashion sense, is to call on the services of our old friend, the Cardigan-That-Looks-Like-a-Jacket.

With the help of a good CTLLAJ, you can continue to look stylish while still keeping yourself warm, and we have to say that this particular Cardigan-That-Looks-Like-a-Jacket is one of the nicest ones we’ve seen. It’ll look fantastic with jeans, helping to both dress them up a little bit and provide that much-needed element of warmth. The military look is also very appropriate for the Chief, who just wishes it wasn’t £129.66. If you have no such qualms over price, you can pick one up at Anthropologie.

    Oh dear, it’s down to £71.64 now and I’m getting tempted…

    Ah, I didn’t notice that! Oh God, that *does* make it all the more tempting, doesn’t it?

    The problem for me here would be all of the buttons. I love them, but I will inevitably miss a button somewhere along the way, forcing me to button them all over again. Of course, I COULD just start from the bottom, but why would I do something so sensible?

    Hayley, I have exactly the same problem – for some reason multiple buttons defeat me every time!

    This is lovely. I too suffer from always being a bit chilly, so cardigans are an all year investment for me! If only I had £70 to spare…

    I don’t know, the way it’s buttoned up, it seems to be at least 2 sizes too small.
