Cardigan season is here once more, and ever since they came back into fashion (rather than just being something that languished at the back of your grandma's cupboard), the range available is truly something to behold.

The only catch? Now that they're a sought-after wardrobe piece, the price tag of the average cardigan has gone up. 

So we've had a scout around to find the more affordable and top-rated option on the high street and have stumbled across an absolute gem that has been backed up by hundreds of reviews. 

Why we rate it:

Not only is the Soft Touch Knitted Longline Cardigan from Marks & Spencer only £29.50, it also comes in multiple hues, so you can match it to any outfit.

It's long enough to really keep out the chill during slightly colder days and feels cosy when worn indoors thanks to its ultra-soft ribbed knit.

The easy-to-wear longline length has a relaxed fit, creating a flattering silhouette, and boasts two pockets for your phone, key or the winter staple, hand cream. 

It comes in six shades, including the staple winter hues of navy and black, plus trendy camel, hot pink, chartreuse and duck egg blue. 

Plus, with Christmas just around the corner, a number of reviews say that they were gifted the stylish item by a loved one or bought it for a family member who were very pleased with it - so if you're in need of some Christmas gift inspo this may be the one for you.
