On my list of things to do is learn how to crochet. Until then, I'll let Topshop give me a helping hand with this 1950s-style mustard cardie. For £40, it'll probably save me loads of time and frustration!
I love that it works the granny chic look as favoured by Alexa. Plus, you'll be getting a head start on next season's big crochet trend. Just take a look at the Christopher Kane and House of Holland a/w 2011 catwalk shows, where inspiration came from crochet blankets.
Right now, this cropped cardie is great for working summer's colour trend. It comes in bright red, too. Add a splash of colour to jeans or team with a pretty sundress for a retro vibe.
