Bargain Sweater from New Look

Following on from my post yesterday about sweatshirts, I wanted to let you know about a really great basic one that I've found.

This week I borrowed my Mum's yellow French Connection ribbed sweater that she bought from Yard (local boutique) this summer. It's a fabulously bright yellow and has now sold out at Yard, although they do have it in navy for the current season.

Here I am wearing the yellow colour:

Sweater - French Connection at Yard SS14
New York Scarf - Yard
Black Jeans - Mint Velvet - AW13
Backpack - Mint Velvet AW14
Shoes - New Look - AW14

I wanted to find something similar with full length sleeves and in neutral/darker colours for this season and spotted this bargainous one from New Look which has the same ribbed texture and relaxed fit:

Yellow Quilted Ribbed Style Sweater £14.99

It comes in a fantastic range of colours including black, white, khaki, orange and this gorgeous dark red, perfect for autumn:

Dark Red Quilted Ribbed Sweater £14.99

For the price, this is such a versatile sweater, easy to dress down with jeans and trainers or dress up with skinny jeans and a statement necklace/scarf, or even wear with a pencil skirt and heels to the office.

Does anyone know of any other bargain sweaters? I've heard that Primark is a great place to find one, so be checking it out!
