Layering is always on trend, whether it is in the winter, spring or summer. 

Although the weather is starting to warm up, it's not hot enough to go sans jacket quite yet, but, even when it is, we still like to take out a light denim jacket or cardigan for the evening when the sun goes in. 

We have found just the ticket: Marks and Spencer's Cotton V-Neck Cardigan.

Why we rate it 

The Cotton V-Neck Cardigan may be a simple design, and a basic wardrobe staple, but it's a staple nonetheless. 

This throw-on cardigan, is made from soft cotton, which has been sustainably sourced as part of M&S' Better Cotton initiative. 

It boasts a regular fit, although is a slightly loose rather than a fitted design. It features a V-neck front, and four-button front fastening, as well as ribbed trims on the cuff and hem. 

It comes in two colours, soft white and grey marl, both of which are available in extra small to extra large UK dress sizes, and cost £19.50

Whether you are wearing the cardi indoors when working from home, or lounging on the sofa watching your favourite series, it makes for the perfect cosy leisurewear item. 

However, you can also pair it with jeans and trainers for everyday occasions, or layer over a summer dress to keep any chill at bay.
