Mix Apparel - slub cotton cardi

I am a believer in you get what you pay for.

Occasionally, there is an exception to this rule.

Today I found one exception.

A long sleeve cardi in the Coles Mix Apparel range.


In black & in white

In 100% cotton with a slub finish.

No hanger appeal, but it does have body appeal.

This is a casual cardi you can throw on at the last minute when nothing else is handy. In fact, I'd keep one in the car & another near the exit door at home.

Stylewise is has a number of pluses:

1. 100% cotton

2.  It has texture - a slub look. This helps to hide any wear & tear such as pills or pulls. 

3. The slub look replicates the look of a linen knit - a more expensive look.

4. It has a deep vee front - the vertical lines of the vee are slimming.

5. It has buttons at a close distance from each other, so when it's done up, it doesnt gape open.

6. It has serious vertical lines when you leave it open - slimming city.

7. It has long sleeves but feels light - a perfect layering piece over a top & under a jacket.

8. The button holes are nicely finished

Conclusion: Check it out.
I bought it in black.

The Mix site is calling it a "tie front cardi"...that is an error, it is a button front.
