The Princess of Wales likely chose the knit for its festive sparkle—the garment is adorned with sequins throughout.
The Princess wears the cardigan in the opening section of the show where she talks about the late Queen. I expect the Princess wanted to find a garment that felt suitably festive but also respectful.
About the black sequin cardigan:
The copped cardigan features self-portrait’s signature pockets (I’ve noticed a lot of their designs feature similar flap pockets) that are edged with a gold trim and finished with diamanté buttons.
The cardigan’s gold trim is decorated with a beads and gems for added sparkle.
The garment is crafted from a wool mix fabric.
Self-Portrait say the cardigan’s high-shine sequin finish is proof that “timeless doesn’t mean predictable”. They recommend styling with heeled boots and jeans for “an effortlessly cool drinks ensemble”.
Where to buy:
If you’d like to add the cardigan to your wardrobe, you’re in luck. The sparkling garment is available to buy from a number of retailers. Grab it now and that’s New Year’s Eve sorted.
