Lovely cardi but loose fit .
This is a very pretty cardi with cute buttons .
The gathering and tabs on the sleeves are a nice touch .
It is lightweight so good for a summer cover up if you don't want sunburnt arms !!!! Or if there is a breeze and your arms are cool.
However I was looking for a more fitted look and perhaps should have read through the reviews before buying .

Great for the summer
Great colours, the buttons are very pretty but it doesn't seem to keep its shape. Still, I like it and would recommend it.

Great lightweight cardi
I bought this cardi in natural for summer. I love the different button detail. Nice fit and feels comfortable. I am definitely tempted to buy another in a different colour!

Lovely summer cardi!
Fab summer cardi with funky buttons. Flattering fit, doesn't cling around the belly. True to size.
Downside a little pricey, but I still bought in a couple of colours! Love it!

Great lightweight cardigan
This is a really great cardigan. I really like the cut of it, which is empire line, so it falls away from the bust in a flattering way. It looks good whether worn undone or done up. (I tend to prefer done up because I can see the buttons!) The length is just right for me (I'm only 5'2") and I can wear it with both skirts and trousers. The quirky buttons are a great touch and the fact that the sleeves can be rolled up for a 3/4 length look or left down is also a bonus. I tried both a size 1o and a size 12 and found that the size 10 was a better fit. The size 12 was too roomy. I vary between a 10 and a 12 in different shops so I would say go for the smaller size unless you want a particularly roomy fit.
You do need to think what sort of top would look best with the neckline on this cardigan and I would say that trial and error is probably your best bet. Unless you go for a similarly low cut t shirt, what you are wearing underneath will show. At the moment, I'm wearing this with the Jodie shirt underneath (both in the thistle colour) and it works well.
This isn't the cheapest cardi you will ever buy, but I really like the style (so much so that I've bought a couple of different colours), and the thistle colour is to be particularly recommended!

Love this Cardi!
Thank you white stuff for making such a flattering fit cardigan that skims my middle rather than clings! Super length too that is elongating and flattering rather than boxy like a lot of lightweight cardigans! It hangs so well and the pretty buttons and detail on the sleeve make it unique instead of just another cardigan. The fit most of all gets a huge thumbs up. Would say size down rather than up. And finally thanks for making it in the lovely navy blue. Love it with a plain white vest underneath and light coloured jeans. Not all of us suit pastels on our upper body especially if your trying to slim down a bigger top half! A favourite new piece of clothing!

Picked the cream coloured cardi as it would go with more tops. I liked the rolled sleeves which have a button to keep them in place or the sleeves can be worn long. Nice details with the odd coloured buttons . I haven't washed it yet so can't comment on this. It is true to size and slightly A line rather than fitted. Good price with my 15% off.

Lovely in blue
Bought the blue card and it goes well with lots of other tops, esp the cherry t-shirt which has the blue colour through it. Usual lovely button details and pretty neckline.

Beautiful dark magenta
This is such a lovely cardigan. The style goes with everything - tunics, jeans, skirts. The magenta is more of purple which is what I hoped. It's bright and cheery and altogether lovely. The different coloured buttons are a great detail and its handy to have little pockets.

Love the buttons
This is my first purchase from white stuff I will be back xx
25 April 2014
ordered two different colours - loved one, hate the other!
I originally bought this in lime and loved it. The fit was good, I liked the two length of arm options, the buttons added a bit of interest and the colour matched lots of other white stuff items.
When I saw the soft peach on offer I decided to buy another. However, when it arrived I didn't even take it out of the packet. The colour was not really soft peach more lurid peach. I also felt it needed a fairly tanned complexion to be able to carry it off.
So in summary I love the style and some colours but the soft peach was too bright for my lifestyle and pale skin!

Love this cardy!
I love this cardy i have two in different colours. It fits lovely, the buttons are really pretty and I love the roll up sleeve. Looks great with so many outfits. More colours please WS! Especially pastel colours :-)
23 April 2014
Bought in three colours, Navy, Dark Magenta and Soft Beetroot (so far), because it is such a lovely cardigan. Good quality, not thin, and an excellent fit. Got the 12 when I am between a 12 and 14.
14 April 2014
Bought this cardi on a rare visit to my local was shop as I usually buy online and I'm glad that I did the colour is much better than on screen also bought the coral blouse which goes together perfectly and is becoming my favourite outfit teamed with dark jeans although because of the neutral colour it will definitely be a summer staple

I wasn't sure about spending this much on a cardi but so glad I did. Beautiful style and finish. My size can vary from make to make and sizing down was perfect

Lovely to wear
This is a lovely piece of clothing, the fabric is a bit thinner than I thought but very soft and has a nice flattering shape. The colour is very nice nad it's easy to wear, it goes with virtually anything. It could be a bit longer though- I tried size 8 and 10 and they were both the same length so I went for size 8, which was a better fit. I highly recommend this product and I am now thinking about getting another one in a different colour!

Nice neutral cardigan
I ordered a size 8 which seems quite large on me, would order size 6 if possible. Different buttons look really cute and I like the rolled up sleeves. Neutral colour looks lovely with tops and over a dress but think I prefer the look of the buttons done up rather than leaving it unbuttoned. Will probably be a spring/summer staple in my wardrobe this year.

This is very probably the perfect cardigan! It's a great weight for a spring/summer/autumn cover up, and can even be layered for winter wear in a warm office. The fit of the size 16 is perfect for me (5'4" hourglass figure who wears mostly size 16 and some size 18). I particularly like the length, as I don't like cardigans that come up too short - it's a very flattering mid-hip length. The multi-coloured buttons are just a fab detail, and the turn up sleeves are a great idea - so much neater than just pushing your sleeve up, but more versatility than a fixed 3/4 length. Colours are great too. Lime is really flattering on me (dark hair, pale skin), and I have my eye on the purple one now too!

Sooo pretty and good quality
Bought the cardigan in the Lime colour as always wanted one in a lovely green. This was a winner although initially thought of sizing down as I am in between 12-14 but went for the 14 instead as I preferred a looser fitting, could still have felt just as good in 12. Really pretty buttons with attention to details, cannot really fault it in anyway, more vibrant colours and maybe some with prints would be great too. Perfect length and an option to have sleeves up or down is brilliant. Will go with a lot of other clothes and is good for both winter under a coat or summer as well. Another must buy and the colour is one that would be in fashion always.

I love it but....
I bought this to go with the Daisy Daisy dress in Marrow Green and a similar tunic I bought last year amongst other things but it might still have to go back. I love the colour and I love the look of the style but not as much as a very very similar cardi I bought last year but that one had a v neck instead of round and I much prefer it over my dresses. This one also seems a tiny bit longer (I am only 5'1) and if I do up the top button it looks too low on me. I adore the v neck version and really want to find another couple of colours so fingers crossed it will come back again by summer.

Bought this in natural and it looks great with the Veggie Bird skirt as well as with the Flutter Flutter shirt and skinny jeans. I usually size up to a 12 with WS's knitwear as they normally seem a bit skimpy and tight in the sleeves, but this time the 12 was way too big, so I bought my usual size.
25 March 2014
I've bought three of these as the colours are lovely, they are great with jeans and the empire line fit means they neatly cover up a slightly less than slimline waist! I sized up from my normal 12 to a 14 as I always find these cotton Whitestuff cardis come up a bit small if you want to wear a long sleeve t underneath.
18 March 2014
This is a really nice cardie, I had one last summer in a tomato colour so knew what to expect. It's a thin cardie but it hangs really well over vest tops and little t's. Got it in navy this year :-)
18 March 2014
Lovely summer cardie
I have wanted this cardi for ages and finally treated myself. Gorgeous soft pick colour with lovely buttons that give the cardi a twist.

Liked this so much I purchased in various colours
I have purchased this in about 6 colours; I was drawn, like a lot of people, to the quirky multi-coloured buttons. It works very well with little summer tops. You do have to be quite selective regarding what will go underneath, due to the cut of the neckline (and for me, I couldn't wear it by itself as it would be far too low). It's not the sort of cardigan you can just throw on with anything - the simpler the t-shirt underneath, the better; it doesn't tend to go well with fussy styles. I have found the daisy chain tee complements this really well. I just love this cardigan though, and I have received many compliments when wearing the various colours. I think Peppermint and Soft Beetroot are my favourite colours.

Lovely cardigan with a difference. Love the cut, love the buttons. Quite a thin wool so don't buy if it's a warm cosy top you're after. Always gets me compliments. Only problem I have is there are too many colours to choose from for my next one.
11 March 2014
I love this cardigan!
I bought this in the light radish colour which is a lovely pinky red colour. I'm a curvy 12 but always buy a 14 in Whitestuff knitwear as it tends to be clingy. It looks great with a white Tshirt & jeans.
Just a warning I always wash my WS knits inside out on a 15 min 30 degree cycle as they ruin easily on anything more. Would love other colours but waiting for another 20% off day.
11 March 2014
Bought samphire green. Love the fit; whilst great for layering I'm wearing it buttoned up as a light jumper. The detail in the sleeves and buttons is lovely. Hope it washes ok as will buy more if it wears well.
10 March 2014
I love this card. I have it in green and will be buying more. I'm allergic to wool so it is always good to find a cotton card.
I like having full length sleeves or being able to roll them up. the buttons are very cute.
The style works well with jeans but also over a tunic top and leggings.
