Investment pieces

Building a versatile wardrobe takes a few key classic pieces, that are your  regulars,  your staples , every women needs them !!!

One said item is the versatile, classic little cardigan. Invest in quality and this little piece will see you through a few seasons 🙂

Five years ago I did just that ! I opted for the following ,

 A Silkbody – silk and merino cardigan

72% silk, 13% merino, 15% cotton

To read all the benfits of this beautiful fabric read here, 🙂

NZ  based Silkbody produce a lovely range of fitted or loose, longline or cropped, cardi’s, so you are bound to find something. All  are made from their unique blend of silk, merino and cotton . They are practical yet luxurious, whilst being  soft, light and still incredibly warm. These beauties are so versatile, great for every occasion and perfect for travelling, they just don’t crease 🙂

The range of colours does vary every season. I have to say I did go for  black but as I said this for me was an investment piece so I wanted a colour that would be versatile in my wardrobe. At $180 I wasn’t in a position to get the colour wrong and no regrets . As I said for me classic black was perfect, I also opted for the timeless classic cardigan with natural shell buttons.

I’m struggling to get a good picture, sorry they are just coming up too small and the one I could have used with the model wearing the cardigan would have had you running to the hills, not the best photo to show case these beauties 🙂 The picture is more worthy of a catalogue  circa 1973 , sorry Silkbody  not great styling at all !

I adore my cardi, it has been amazing and is still going strong, a perfect investment and a stunning little all rounder 🙂 . I can pop this into the washing machine (front loader) and 5 years on, it is as good as new. If you pop onto the site, also check out the wrap scarf , this is the ultimate . At 220cm long it is versatile and a great item all year round. 🙂 Perfect summer wrap in the evening, perfect scarf for the cooler months.

Wrap scarf on the right. Love this colour green and a bit of a visual and colour for you 🙂

Wrap Scarf here  $190 again a great investment .
