Necessary Evil Latona CardiganThe gorgeous Latona cardigan from Necessary Evil features flattering drapes with contrast faux leather pointed shoulders. This long sleeve lightweight cardigan also includes handy thumbholes and a pointed hemline. Great for completing any look, this cardi is perfect for when you need that extra layer.
Beautiful drape & a Dynasty vibe too!
I adore this cardigan, the waterfall front is really flattering & it's shaped beautifully to skim your hips. The leatherette detail on the shoulders gives a really great change in texture & highlights the awesome 80s style shoulder pads! At first I was a little taken aback by them, but I love them now. You could remove them, I'd suggest definitely sizing down if you're going to do that. I'm a UK 8-10 & I got a S but I could have easily fitted an XS & if I was going to remove the shoulder pads I would definitely have purchased an XS.
Good for work and home
Looks smart and use it for work and home. And keep the chill off
Great drape, but too much shoulder padding
What a gorgeous piece. The weight of the drape makes it hang in place perfectly, so that it looks as it does in the photo without gaping open. This is flattering as it shows your shape from the front, though it looks looser from the side view. It's very thin and lightweight, so consider it a summer piece. I love the constrast of the faux leather. The whole look is stylish, but cool and can suit a more grown up goth look easily. The only issue with it is I didn't realise the shoulders were so padded. It looks great on HMM and the model, but I guess I must have wider shoulders as it sadly looks ridiculous on me. Such a shame! I think if you are bottom-heavy/pear shaped, with narrow/petite shoulders then this will balance you out nicely. If you are top-heavy/cone/apple shaped or hour-glass/balanced up and down like myself with broader shoulders then it may not suit you. I was worried the size 10 would be too big on me. A size 8 would probably suit me better (I like quite a fitted look) but the size 10 is also perfectly acceptable and leaves room for layering. If another version of this were released without the shoulder padding, I would buy it in a heartbeat!
