Five Day Littlewoods Style Challenge – Day 4

Five Day Littlewoods Style Challenge – Day 4

We’ve asked our lovely menswear buyer, Dorothy, to be the first person to take on our Five Day Littlewoods Challenge. Find out more about the challenge here, and read on to see how Dorothy got on in day four of the challenge and find out how you can be in a winner in today’s giveaway!

Day 4

I had been looking forward to wearing the Nougat waterfall cardigan since I got it. Out of all of the eight pieces I was given at the start of the week, this is really the only one I would have considered buying for myself before I was asked to do the Challenge. I love grey and I like wearing cardigans, so the colour and style of this one was right up my street.

In the office in my gorgeous Nougat waterfall cardigan

If I had any concerns it was that it looked like quite a heavy knit so I wasn’t convinced it was an item I’d get lots of wear out of, maybe it would be quite limited to the Winter. But the weather wasn’t great today so it didn’t feel weird putting on a cardigan, and I was looking forward to giving this one a go!

Nougat Longline Waterfall Cardigan

And I wasn’t disappointed, it’s so comfortable and cosy and I got loads of compliments on it – the waterfall makes it a real statement piece so there’s no need to think too much about the rest of the outfit, which makes it a really easy one to throw on when you haven’t got much time to plan an outfit. It is a lovely quality knit and while I do think I’d get most wear out of it when the weather’s colder, it’s actually ideal for layering over t-shirts and vests during the Spring and Autumn (wearing it in high Summer might be pushing it a bit!) I certainly felt comfortable in it and I know it would become of my go-to pieces that I could easily wear every day, and take with me even if I wasn’t wearing it ‘just in case’!

I really wanted to wear light colours with this cardigan to keep the outfit bright and fresh (it is still August after all!) so I wore my own white jeans which are by South and are one of my most-worn items during the summer – they just go with everything and are a lovely alternative to blue denim. And I love wearing neutral colours, I think they look sophisticated and can be so easily mixed and matched, so this cardigan fitted in really well with a lot of clothes I already have in my wardrobe.

I was going to wear the Dune ballerina pumps again today but I decided to keep it a bit more summery by putting on some tan peep toes (another investment I’d definitely recommend – tan shoes are ridiculously versatile!) I finished off the look with a light stripe scarf to tie in the grey shades, but I have to say that I really think the cardigan made this outfit and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough!


Today we’re giving away the Nougat Longline Waterfall Cardigan, as worn by Dorothy in today’s challenge. For your chance to win this gorgeous cardi, just tell us how you wear it – would it be something you wear for work, the kind of cardi you take everywhere and wear over everything, or would you use it as more of a dressy cover up?! Whatever you’re thinking, let us know by using the form below to leave your comment before midnight, and a winner will be picked at random tomorrow morning from all of the approved entries. See T&Cs here and good luck!

Thanks for all the comments on yesterday’s post, but there can only be one winner! Congratulations Chloe Beadle, you’ve won the Miss KG Wedge Shoes from yeserday’s giveaway!

    I love waterfall cardigans – they go so well with everything, especially jeans. You can dress them up with heals or wear them down with trainers and they still look fab!

  5. Posted by Jenny Eaves on August 25, 2011

    I’d wear it to dress up my jeans and everyday wear, it would be great for wearing when I’m breastfeeding too, could easily use it to cover up! 🙂

  10. Posted by Kate Sabin-Burns on August 25, 2011

    I would mostly wear it during the day, at home, or on the school run, or to snuggle up in to watch a movie. But it would also make a great alternative to a coat on a night out, when its not too cold! A fab all-rounder!

  11. Posted by Gillian Manwaring on August 25, 2011

    I would wear this on days when I go shopping, casually with jeans or a night in the pub with smart trousers. Its very versatile.

  17. Posted by terina davidson on August 25, 2011

  22. Posted by Janine on August 25, 2011

    Definitely skinny black jeans, white v-neck t-shirt, black patent strappy sandals and black patent tote bag.

  23. Posted by tinks on August 25, 2011

    The cardi looks so snuggley and warm. Perfect for cosy nights in, in front of the telly. Though I’d probably want to show it off a bit first by wearing it on my commute to work with a sleek pair of peg leg trousers and high heels.

    This would be so useful for my holiday in Ibiza in late September. It would go well over an evening outfit of trousers and a small top to keep out the evening chill.

  27. Posted by abigail craig on August 25, 2011
