Autumn’s comfiest fashion trend
With luxe fabrics, funky designs and cool silhouettes, cardigans have never been cooler. Here are our favourite online buys, including two local heroes to add to your autumn wardrobe.
The bees knees
The devil’s in the detail on this black alpaca wool-blend cardi from & Other Stories – how sweet are the bumblebee buttons? Dress down with jeans and boots or pair with a satin slip skirt and heels for an elegant (yet cosy) evening look.
The traffic stopper
This playful geometric print cardi is a dead cert for adding a pop of colour to your autumn wardrobe – wear over a strappy cami or on it’s own as a top for a more impactful look. Available from Henley-based boutique Fluidity2.
From H&M’s conscious range, the oatmeal colour and sleek longline silhouette gives this simple cardigan a luxe, expensive feel (even though it’s a steal for under 20 quid!).
The twin set
The twin set is back, people! (Albeit minus the pearls and elaborate up-do.) This pretty mint option, from Mango, brings the style into the present day with its ditsy flower detail and slightly cropped length.
Cardigan £39.99, Top £19.99
The game changer
This simple yet stylish grey number from The Outnet’s in-house brand Iris & Ink scores points for style and versatility with the option to remove the tie for a more casual, everyday look.
The chunky knit
Nail two trends in one with the subtle puff sleeve on this chunky knit number from Zara. Added chic creds for the covered buttons, plus the rich plum colour is perfect for autumn.
Go luxe with this long merino wool coat-style cardi from Winser London. Perfect for transitioning into cooler climes, plus the side splits and Winser’s signature Milano stitch give the cardigan a sophisticated, tailored feel.
The wardrobe staple
Simple and chic, this cardigan from Cambridge’s Boudoir Femme boutique should have a place in every girl’s wardrobe. It goes will pretty much everything and is made from the finest Italian wool yarn. Tuck into your pants to ooze Italian chic like this lovely lady or let it hang out with skinny jeans for an effortlessly cool vibe.
The cosy choice
If you only buy one cardigan this season, make it a super special purchase that you’ll love and wear for years to come. We’d never take this cashmere number from Suffolk boutique Anna off if it was ours. Also an item of clothing with a pocket is a must-have for effortless Insta posing! Just wear this cardigan every day for a year and the cost per wear is a £1 – like what we did there?!
