As the days get colder and colder, curling up in a cosy warm jumper or cardigan is all most of us want to do.
There’s not much better than a soft, slouchy jumper that looks as stylish as it is comfortable to wear.
So when we heard that there was one cardigan/jumper being coveted by over 30,000 people, we certainly sat up and listened.
The Barry jumper, by French retailer Sézane, seems to have set the fashion world alight recently, as it has a waiting list of over 30,000 people desperate to get their hands on it.
The piece isn’t a limited edition item, but one of the retailers constant pieces since it launched in September of this year. However, it seems the cardigan consistently sells out, with the brand continually forced to restock.
And it’s certainly not hard to see why. The long-sleeved, oversized cardigan is the ultimate in relaxed, French-girl chic, and can even be worn in two different ways.
According to the website, “This style is designed to be a relaxed cardigan that can be worn frontwards or backwards.”

Wear the cardi as a cardigan with the buttons down the front for a sophisticated and smart style, although be aware that the V-neck cut of the design may require you to wear a top underneath.
However, you can also wear the Barry back-to-front with the V down the back, for a rather more sultry look.
And according to Sézane, you should order one size down of the versatile piece if you’re planning to purchase – “This style runs large and is meant to be oversized. Order one size down if you are unsure.”
However, it seems as though the fashionable pick is so popular due to the amount of attention it’s gathered over on social media.
Tons of fashionistas have shared their styling of the popular cardi on Instagram – and it seems to have inspired others to purchase the item for their wardrobe too.
The juper comes in four different colours too, so you can take your pick. Choose from ecru (light beige), grey, nude or black – depending on how you plan to style the highly-coveted piece.
It’s on sale for £90, which, while a little pricey, is a fair price for what’s likely to be a timeless investment piece that’ll work in your wardrobe for years to come.
UK customers can purchase the piece online, at Sézane’s international website here.
But luckily for us, it seems we don’t have to join that long, long waiting list, as the cardigan is set to be restocked again soon. Anticipating huge sales, it should be available again on December 13th – Christmas present anyone? Get your credit cards ready!
