If you think a cardigan can’t be cool, take another look at Lily Rose Depp in the zip-front cardigan she wore to the Chanel AW17 womenswear show in Paris in March.?Designers love to subvert traditional sartorial associations, so the “old-man-with-pipe” perception?of cardigan wearers is no more. Depp, with her usual grace and style, channeled the new mood for AW17. Cardigans are now chic and relevant whatever your age. Depp showed that they can be sexy too.
If you want to buy into this trend ahead of the AW collections, here are a few sales buys that will see you through the next season in Lily Rose Depp-like style.
This cotton khaki cardi looks super-sophisticated styled loosely with a belt, and the pockets also add a nicely boyish feel to it.

I love that this piece?has a slightly school uniform-feel to it at first glance, but the deconstructed ruffles give it an entirely new lease of life.

This zip-front cropped cardigan from H&M has a bomber jacket feel to it, giving it the kind of urban vibe you don’t expect to get from a cardigan. The punctured effect of the holes makes it the perfect piece to layer.
?25.99 (reduced from €39.99) at H&M
This Maje cardigan has a slightly’retro look to it. There’s something comfortingly naive about a simple moss stitch, and I love the red and green colourblock. It feels a little bit 1970s but looks so modern styled with stonewashed jeans.
?125 (reduced from €250) at Maje
