Buy it now: Floopy sweaters
After writing about ‘floopy Birkins‘ (tbh I’m still not sure if this was a typo and meant to say ‘floppy’ but I like ‘floopy‘). I just clocked this floopy, droopy sweater from COS* (above).
Slouchy floopy sweaters are not as easy to come by as you think. It’s not always enough to just size up. Sometimes that means the neck is too wide and the sleeves are too long. A properly floopy sweater needs to be deliberately cut wide and ideally have a thick ribbed hem so you can tuck it in with enough extra to hang generously and ‘effortlessly’ (guess what – it’s never effortless) over the waistband. And sleeves that are roomy enough to push up with plentiful folds, especially when layered over a shirt.
The COS sweater seems to tick all these boxes. It’s made from undyed, responsibly sourced cashmere, which translates as – and I quote – “recycled yarns and pieces produced in accordance with The Good Cashmere Standard by the Aid by Trade Foundation (AbTF) – an independent standard working to source traceable, sustainably certified cashmere that cares for the wellbeing of cashmere goats, protects the environment, and supports the herders that produce it.”
You can find it here* (£190) with cardigans*, scarves* and socks (below, to come) to match – which also speak to the barista-inspired colour trend I wrote about last month. P.S, in case you missed it, COS will be wholesaled to global retailers from next week, so non-UK readers may be able to find the sweater a little closer to home.
