Cardigans have always been essential for fall, but this season’s modern updates, like cropped styles, statement sleeves, and bold prints, have elevated the once simple layering knit into a trend-forward, edgy autumnal piece. Take a look at how Katie Holmes, Kaia Gerber, Bella Hadid, and Chrissy Teigen have been wearing this season’s must-have cardigan.
Mix Prints & Textures
Use a cardigan as a way to experiment with mixing prints and textures with your outfit to make a bold statement this season.
Classic, Preppy Layering
If the weather is still mild, and a second layer is hit or miss, you’ll love the 80’s preppy trend of tying your cardigan around your shoulders.
Forgo Layering & Wear it as a Top
Find a cardigan with a bit of structure and forgo the layer underneath, creating a top out of your chunky knitted cardigan for an edgy twist on the preppy style.
Play With Proportions
We all love a long, chunky cardigan to cozy up to during the crisp weather. Try layering your essential cardigan with a jacket (under or atop!) for more warmth.
