River Island Leopard Print Cardigan

4.0 out of 5 stars
 
Feb 25, 2012   River Island cardigan review by

I adore leopard print. I'm like Hampshire's answer to Bet Lynch. Only without the pub.

I've wanted a faux fur collared cardigan for around 3 years now but have never found the perfect one. When I saw this, I bought it immediately and right now my fiance is at his mum's house begging to borrow money so we can eat until payday. True story.

The collar is gorgeous. It's a very soft, subtle faux fur rather than the tacky shaggy stuff you get on cheap cushions. It has a lovely leopard print pattern with perfectly complemented tones. It also has two adorable little pockets. They're teeny tiny, so probably not practical for most people, but as a primary school teacher I am forever picking up Lego bricks, counters and other small, light items so this is perfect.

Comfort and fit-wise, it is ideal, although the body is very short. I have a short torso anyway so I wonder whether it is supposed to be cropped even though the website makes no mention of this.

It is also extremely thin. Holding it up to the TV, I could see the picture through both sides of the cardigan. Definitely not one for keeping snug in the winter but as spring is on its way now, that's not such a big deal.
