It's official. The cardigan is officially cool again. We know, we know, your Grandma's most loved item probably wasn't at the top of your autumn winter wardrobe wish list, but hear us out...
We are now officially in that awkward autumnal in-between weather stage, where it's too hot to wear a coat but too cold to go without. Do you give into the morning chill and rock a teddy coat that you'll then have to carry round for the rest of the day when the tempature picks up? Or do you brave it and go coatless and freeze to death all morning but smugly swan around hands free for the rest of the day? Well, we say neither, because that ladies, is where this season's most loved knitwear piece swoops in to save the day. Allow us to introduce the fashion faux pas of the past that's now officially cool again...the cardigan.
The cosiest piece of all, the women's cardigan has had a stylish makeover for autumn winter 2018 and thanks to the likes of Gucci and Prada making the cardigan runway-approved, it's fast becoming a must-have for every woman's outerwear collection. The perfect layering piece, the cardigan is the outfit saving chuck-on-and-go piece for those days when nothing is going right and you've got to be out the door in exactly 4 minutes.
