It was love at first sight when I saw this cotton-cashmere jumper in Gap. And I was even more smitten when I saw it was reduced from £35 to £24.99.
It's chain-stitched message of 'love' reminded me of the slogan sweaters and T-shirts by Bella Freud, Markus Lupfer and Sonia Rykiel, while its hidden, sewn-in-the-sleeve 'kiss' on the reverse of the right-hand cuff (a surprise discovery while taking these pics!) is a finishing touch that I like to think all three designers would appreciate. Even the quirky left-hand pocket is cute.
Wear it oversized with jeans for off-duty cool, or with a simple black skirt for a preppy work look (don't be afraid to mix navy with black - the two work well together).
Talking of love, other Gap sale items you'll adore are the navy scooped-neck tee with 'je t'aime' spelt out in a sailor-style rope print for £9.99 and a red T-shirt with 'love' printed in big block letters for £6.99. And, sharing the love is Gap, with its 30% discount voucher to everyone on its mailing list, valid from today until 14th November. Happy shopping!
