If the humble cardigan isn’t making an appearance in your wardrobe yet, now’s the time to reconsider one of the year’s biggest trends. Once relegated to your grandma’s cupboard, cardigans are now a key piece in any trans-seasonal wardrobe – they’re super easy to wear and are perfect for layering. No matter your personal style, the new season of cardigans offer numerous options to elevate your basic jeans and tee uniform or add some warmth when layered over a skirt or dress.
1. Soft and Simple
For a chic and cosy way to style a cardi, ditch a jacket and pair a soft mohair or cashmere cardigan over jeans for a pulled together and super easy take on the trend.
For an easy day-to-night look, style a fine knit cardigan over your favourite midi skirt and boots, accentuate your waist with an understated belt. Ribbed cardigans are just as easily pared back with your favourite denim, making this style one of the most versatile for the season.
3. Add some spice
Worried that you'll be channelling your granny in a cardigan? There IS a way of making the cardigan look sexy - an off the shoulder slouchy knit will keep you warm whilst bringing the heat to your look.
4. Everyday icons
Take a page from the style book as written by Anine Bing and Erika Boldrin and pair a chunky cardigan over loose-cut pants with some boots for a perfect winter's day look.
5. Colour change
One of our favourite things about the cardigan trend is the subtle colour you can add to a muted winter wardrobe. For a playful option go for a tie-dye piece with light denim and Dad sandals, or for a pretty alternatives, pastels are the new neutrals and the perfect partner for denim or any shade.
