Welcome back!

January 21, 2013

Oh yes, we are back!

Hope you are all enjoying the optimal cardigan weather!

To the max

December 14, 2010

I know, I know… what happened? How could I go so long without an update?
Is my commitment to cardigans waning??
Not at all.

As you can understand, life got incredibly busy, with my day job [I’m not so lucky as to have my blog be that yet ;-)], travelling, and moving to a new place… I neglected Hug You Wear, along with many other important things.

So I hope to be back, to stay as consistent as I can with the things I care about!

Moving on, I adore the sweeping maxi cardigan, and am looking to find one that suits me. This Top Shop number is a high contender. The cozy knitted mohair is a perfectly stylish way to cocoon from the winter weather!

Quite the caper

September 12, 2010
tags: , ,

Lately, I have been on the hunt for the perfect cape for this season. I like the shape, ease and quirkiness of a cape. But it has not been an easy task, and I am still on the look out.

It was nice to come across this Fine Gauge Cape Style Cardigan on ASOS. The oversized collar, toggle closure and wide cropped sleeve, gives it a feel of some of the best cape qualities– but in a cardigan!

On your Best Behavior

September 6, 2010

It’s awesome to see more stores opening online shops– and not just the big chains, like Zara and the Gap Corp (well, their Canada site).
Best Behavior, a favourite line of The Perfect Pairing, out of Denmark has also opened a webshop! You can purchase items from SS09, AW09 and SS10. Their collections are consistently awesomely multifunctional, and always modern, feminine and accessible.

Be sure to check out the latest, SS11, collection when it becomes available, but some of my most recent faves are from AW10.

These are the featured cardigans from the webshop, all with a unique spin on the standard piece.

Must-have MW

August 27, 2010

I have absolutely fallen for these Graphic Lace Jacquard pattern cardigans by Matthew Williamson. Worth saving up for.
The fair isle inspired design, in these two styles (the roll neck, and wrap), is especially clever with the ‘MW’ incorporated in to it.
Don’t you just want to wrap yourself in one of these while watching the leaves change colour in the crisp autumn air? Perfection.

You can also find the wrap cardigan at Net-A-Porter.
The little video feature to see how it looks on a moving person is my favourite!

Smartigan DIY

August 26, 2010

I do enjoy a good DIY, especially when it comes to cardigans.
So when my sister sent me this project for a little person’s “smartigan”, I just had to share!

The lovely woman at Just Another Day in Paradise blog shares both the steps to make the pattern and the sewing instructions.
This seems like a good endeavor for someone with moderate sewing skills– as the kids size craft makes it more manageable.

And the results? So adorable!

Cardigan connection

August 25, 2010

So remember back in June I gushed about the line CARDIGAN by Lynne Hiriak?
Well, thanks to Google alerts, or some other internet savvy, I just did hear back from from Lynne herself! How cool is that??

There seems to be a lot of exciting stuff happening at the line– a website re-launch in September and an extensive men’s line coming out. Below is one of my faves from the behind the scenes of their fall shoot (via Facebook)– its the Versailles sequined cardigan.

You can stay on top of all the new developments by checking out the CARDIGAN by Lynne Hiriak Facebook Page

And while you’re at it, why not join the fresh Hug You Wear Facebook group too!

Something else

August 23, 2010

This ‘Something Else’ by Natalie Wood V neck  button down cardigan with zipped tassle trim shoulders, spotted on Pixie Market, is so quirky and cozy looking, plus, it’s grey– I adore it!
