Searching for a few additional layers to see you through the unpredictable British spring weather? Marks & Spencer has come up trumps with this Ribbed Edge to Edge Longline Cardigan, which is long, lightweight, and ideal to throw on or keep in your bag just in case.

Another massive bonus? The cardigan is just £25 and comes in a whopping seven colours.

This cosy, lightweight knit is the perfect transitional layer for summer - now wonder it's flying off shelves.

Here's why hundreds of shoppers are snapping it up and leaving rave reviews (there are already over 70 five-star reviews on the new-in item).

Aside from the bargain price point, the Ribbed Edge to Edge Longline Cardigan is a great practical length - it comes to the top of your thighs, or a bit longer if you're more petite, and you can shop it in sizes extra small to extra large.

What size do you need?

  • extra small: size 4-6

  • small: size 8-10

  • medium: size 12-14

  • large: size 14 - 16

  • extra large: size 18 - 20

The elegant longline shape means it'd also look great with a belt if you want to dress it up a little and give yourself a more nipped-in silhouette. The drapey and buttonless style also means it's suitable to wear with dresses or trousers.

Knitted in a ribbed pattern for a textured look and made from a responsibly sourced ribbed viscose, it feels super light to wear but still has the cosy factor.

It looks just as good with dresses and skirts as trousers or athleisure. (Marks & Spencer)

We love the pockets at the front, too, that adds additional functionality to the classic item.

There are also seven colours to choose from: black, grey marl, white, mocha, ecru, navy and olive. And yes, it's machine washable.

Many customers have remarked on the fact this cardigan is the perfect buy for the not-so-sunshiney summer weather we're having. Many commented on how soft it feels against the skin and that it's a great length, too.
