Cardigan Giveaway

you may remember the last wildly popular giveaway i did with NY based knitwear brand Cardigan – well here’s your chance to enter another! and this time we’re giving the guys a chance to get their hands on some too :)

Cardigan can change an outfit in an instant, dress you up or dress you down, and most of all keep you warm. It can be worn as a sweater, jacket, suiting, or outerwear. There’s the everyday staple, the beat up favorite, and the one we wish we could replicate or buy instantaneously in every color. Cardigans are timeless and sentimental.Cardigan by Lynne Hiriak is a singular knitwear concept dedicated to the eponymous item. While designing for the likes of Michael Kors, Derek Lam and other well respected global brands, one constant remained—the request for more cardigans. Cardigan intends to explore and push the boundaries of one limitless item.

all you have to do to enter is [1] like Cardigan on facebook and [2] go browse around Cardigan and tell me what your favourite item is – in the ladies‘ or men’s department – and that’s the one you’ll win.

i’m lucky enough to have a few Cardigan pieces in my cupboard, and they are true staples of wonderful quality. here are some of my personal favourites… (tough to choose just 4, so i’m sure you will have trouble choosing just ONE).

the Lulu Dot Crewneck:

the Sidney Stripe:

the Aimee Zebra Cardigan:

the Madeleine Stripe Dress:

and for the dudes…

the Mitchell Jacquard Crewneck:

the Striped Dean Sweatshirt:
