    The material and the actual shape would be different from a blazer so would sit differently, so no a cardigan probably wouldn't look like a blazer.

    It's the same size as a blazer and same length. Do you think it's very noticeable ?

    I mean, it'll still likely look smart, but not quite like a blazer. Blazers usually have more seams and are made with more rigid material, and they have a decent amount of structuring to them. Cardigans are a lot softer and hang differently. It'll be most noticeable around the shoulders

    Do you think they would allow me to wear a cardigan instead of a blazer ?

    It depends on who it is. I'm guessing this is for a job? You might get away with it, depending on the position and the company. I'd call and ask, for sure. It's better than breaking the dress code on your first day.

    EDIT: Just saw your last post. In that case, you might get away with it. It depends on how lenient they are. If they've asked for a blazer specifically, don't be surprised if a few questions are asked, but I've seen people not have a problem with that kinda thing before

    A cardigan will never look like a blazer due to only being the same lenght and size. That's like saying a pair of jeans looks the same as leggings due to the same/similar shape and form.

    But you're fine to wear a cardigan to a sixth form induction. I highly doubt anyone will care if you wear a black cardigan instead of a black blazer as long as the rest of your outfit is smart. You can just get a blazer sometime before you actually start attending the sixth form
