Cardigans became cool again last year with slinky, cropped versions to wear with high-waisted pants. All the more power to anyone who rocked one that way, but we’re much more partial to this season’s oversized, chunky take.
Like last season, there’s a surplus of neutrals everywhere. Unlike last year, which was more focused on winter whites, there are more rich browns, tans, and grays. You can go classic with a Ralph Lauren wool-cashmere long cardigan in charcoal. & Other Stories has an olive green sweater that would look dreamy with a pair of khakis that are everywhere right now. Madewell’s oatmeal sweater is what happens when you cross a fisherman’s sweater with a cardigan, and we absolutely love it.
J.O.A’s navy and neon green cardigan is especially refreshing. The green-yellow trim is a great way to get in on the neon trend in a really wearable way, and it gives the sweater a relevant and modern update. For anyone else looking for a little bit of color, Baum und Pferdgarten has you covered. Their lavender, balloon-sleeved sweater is a statement all on its own and also happens to one of the color trends this fall.
I Love Mr. Mittens is one brand taking ‘chunky’ to the next level. Their cardigans are exaggerated and extreme, and look more like an actual cocoon you can cozy up in than a sweater. Each piece is hand knitted by Belgian-born founder Stéphanie Caulier making it a one of a kind sweater. The cable-knit wool cardigan in caramel is the perfect throw on with anything piece for your closet.
