We've got one word for you: layers. It's not a new concept come wintertime, but with weather reaching arctic conditions (according to me at least) we're taking every opportunity to swaddle ourselves like a baby. It's for this reason that we're pivoting towards the humble cardigan. Often overlooked for its buttonless pal, the sweater, this season we're seeking a preppier look and so, here we are. With the 90s always weighing on the brain, and normcore and sports codes seeping back into our lives, we've reached the perfect intersection for the cardigan to make a comeback.
This season's offering has something for all. There's slinky styles from Paloma Wool, Jacquemus and Christopher Esber that may not keep you toasty but are sure to deliver heat. And you can always rely on Blumarine to inject a little Y2K spirit. Meanwhile, Acne Studios and Comme Des Garcon Play are touting styles fit for chit chat by the work printer. Then there's a classic Argyle v-neck option from Marni for all the purists. As for the rest? You're just going to have to continue to find out. Below, find our favourite winter cardigans this season has to offer.
