THE COSY CARDIGAN
Layer her up in style for autumn with this cute-as-a-button Fair Isle-style cardigan in the prettiest pastel shades, says kidswear editor Maggie Davis
Few pieces are as useful as a cardigan at this tricky, between-the-seasons time of year. This charming style for girls is inspired by the classic Fair Isle design, a centuries-old pattern that originated on the small eponymous Scottish island between Orkney and Shetland and has become a quintessentially British wardrobe essential. Part of our delightful new heritage collection for girls – which includes tartan skater skirts and cable-knit dresses – this pale blue and grey design with cute heart-shaped buttons works equally well for toddlers and schoolgirls. Pair it with a corduroy skirt and colourful tights for a playful, modern look.
