Two Ways to Style the Hardy Amies Knitted Cardigan

With its soft cotton fabric and streamlined silhouette, the Hardy Amies knitted cardigan has the design features of a blazer but without the hassle of creasing when you fold it up and put it in your suitcase for a weekend break. It can be dressed up and down depending on how you style it, which is ideal when you’re packing wisely.

For a trip to Rome, you may want to channel the classic Italian style and dress up the Hardy Amies knitted cardigan for dinner and drinks in the evening.

Crafted from knitted cotton, it is the perfect weight for a light evening jacket and has a shawl lapel and a curved hem for a neat finish.

Wear it with a high quality navy crew t-shirt as darker colours are more apt for the evening than light hues.

Team the outfit with a pair of white chinos which will look elegantly understated and break up the look effortlessly. A pair of chinos is essential for every man’s spring/summer wardrobe as they are smart, versatile and universally flattering.

When accessorising with leather, opt for warm brown and earthy tones. A tonal belt and matching brogues will match the look perfectly.

Pack lightly and save space in your suitcase or carry all by changing up the styling of the knitted cardigan to dress it down for sightseeing in the daytime.

Contrast the black with a plain white crew-shirt which will add a more casual edge to the look.

Opt for a pair of dark ankle-grazing crepe trousers, charcoal and navy hues will work for this look as they are slightly softer.

It is essential to bring a comfortable pair of shoes for exploring the city all day, so choose a pair of well-made white leather Zespa trainers which have inner cushioning.

This versatile knitted jacket can be your perfect style companion while on a city break, just make a few simple outfit tweaks to take your look from day to night.
