Cardigans were long-considered frumpy, granny-chic, but 2019 changed the game, thanks to Katie Holme’s infamous Khaite set. So now, the humble cardigan is a chic wardrobe staple.
After being photographed around New York wearing a bra and cardigan set, people were obsessed. Then, Zara jumped on the trend with an oatmeal-colored cardi set a week after the photos came out.
Years after this iconic fashion moment, cardigans are now a wardrobe staple and the best trans-seasonal knitwear of choice. They’re comfortable, soft-looking knitwear that adds a little cosiness to your outfit.
The best thing about cardigans is that they come in so many various designs. You can’t beat classic beige, burgundy, and grey cardigans, but the options are excellent.
From chunky knit looks to jazzy vintage styles, there’s a cardi that fits your aesthetic. Of course, there are many ways to style them too! You can pair them with trackies or go chic by layering them with a classic black coat.
To give you a little hand, we’ve rounded up the best cardigans you can find at Zara.
