    Omg I never thought looking for a black cardi would be so hard! Anyone know where I can get a nice one from? Just a plain black cardigan that looks good without the buttons being done up. I've literally looked everywhere in all high street shops (New Look, H&M, Miss Selfridge, Warehouse, River Island, Jane Norman, Bay etc etc). The only place I found something in is Topshop but it didnt look nice with the buttons undone as the neck just hangs low and looks weird.
    Where else can I look? Don't just be like "try blah blah" tell me if you've acutally seen one in a shop or website please! Maybe the shops I've been in have different stock to other locations or something in that case i'll go oxford street or somewhere

    No, it had a cheap tacky belt around it but I took it off and threw it away lol.
    It's fine for just a plain black cardi, you can wear it with anything as the neckline isn't dodgy or anything.

    I had this exact problem for ages...really wanted one to make really pretty tops look a little more casual but couldn't find a decent one anywhere. I ended up buying one from next...there was a pink one too...looks dead nice on...

    Asda. £4. I rarely go to Asda, not really my scene (supermarkets in general) but when I do, I buy three or four of their black cardigans because they are fitted, comfortable and cheap! They don't wash particularly well, but who cares?! The style varies slightly, sometimes they are v-neck, sometimes round-neck but I think they always sell a variation on the theme.

    As someone else said, Zara's cardies are good too. Their cotton blend cardigans are reduced at the moment and they are also comfortable, cheap and wash slightly better than Asda's because they are natural fibres.

    If you want it to hang nicely when the buttons are undone then definatly get a v neck- I think having a round neck one undone just looks weird most of the time.
    I got one a few months ago from the oxford street primark that was 3/4 sleeved.

    Yeah mine was from H&M too and was grand. Was going to suggest M&S as well but you've already tried that.

    Charity shop?
