3 Ways To Keep Super Cosy In A Cardigan This Winter

3 Ways To Keep Super Cosy In A Cardigan This Winter

Knitwear season is finally here. There is a plethora of styles and shapes to choose from, but if I was to distil the vibe for AW17 knitwear down to one key reference, I’d say take inspiration from my granny’s favourite tea cosy-style cardigan.  Crochet is cool, bobbles are the business and patchwork is the pattern of choice. If you still need convincing that cardis are cool, take a look at these fashion-savvy ladies below and steal their style with 3 ways to wear this season’s favourite knit.

Go XXL

Make an entrance worth talking about with an extra-large statement knit. Fashion journalist Tiffany Hsu proved that in this astounding JW Anderson full-length hoodie which caught all the right attention during Paris fashion week. And the colour? It packs the perfect punch. A piece like this really brings the adage “go big or go home” to mind.

TRY

Long cardigan, €59.95 at Zara. Alicia Oversized Boyfriend €27 at Boohoo.co. Preen Line oversized embroidered cotton-blend cardigan, €805 at Net-a-porter.com

Grandad Style

German blogger Nina Suess expertly showed us how to take the humble grandad-cardi to the catwalk by pairing it with a chic pair of rustic culottes, charming leopard-print mules, and a trendy leather beret. The mixture of patterns and texture, together with smart accessorising – which she makes look so effortless –gives a new perspective on this slouchy style.

TRY

High School Prep

Prep is back in full swing so gather your varsity flags and patches and show your stripes! Fashion blogger Helena Bordon led the way at Paris fashion week in a full-length Gucci cardi (you can’t see the back which is emblazoned with a dramatic lion head). Helena paired her prep-inspired number with jeans and heels, but ramp up your prep with a pair of tailored pants and loafers for the perfect preppy aesthetic.
