They don’t sound glamorous, they don’t feel glamorous and, on me, they don’t look glamorous. Cardigans are the one thing that my wardrobe is seriously lacking despite constant encouragement from my mum to start saving them away for a rainy day (or a summer BBQ). Truthfully, they remind me of my granny, and while she may look fabulous, granny chic was a never a look on my radar. Until now.
Draped from your shoulders, tied at the waist or buttoned the whole way up, the cardigan deserves much more credit and looks smart when worn over shirts or a high-necked polo. Plus, the best thing about this trend is that you can start prepping for your AW17 wardrobe now. What’s not to love?
