Pop quiz: Which article of clothing is not only a blast from our past but back and bigger than ever? Cardigans. Formerly reserved exclusively for school librarians or our bundled-up grandmothers, cardigans are a year-round style staple once again.
Whether it’s cropped, belted, floor-length or even tied, the once-passé sweater is cozy, yet unexpectedly chic. We simply cannot stop swooning over the classic cardigan! Looking for a sleek and chic but versatile cardigan? Great, because we’ve found the perfect season-round staple that will serve up look after look!
The Cupcakes and Cashmere Elan Cardigan is ideal for any sweater-lover looking for a more updated approach. The Elan cardigan is suitable throughout all seasons and can be easily dressed up or down. We can’t help but swoon over it for so many reasons but we are loving the waist-defining feature.
The waist tie adds shape and movement to this longline cardigan which makes it not only fun but functional! Shoppers get a two-for-one deal with this tie cardigan since it can be left undone to show off outfits or tied for a warm and cozy look. There’s also a third option: Shoppers have the ability to completely remove the tie belt from the cardigan and for a more relaxed look. This versatility makes it actually a three-for-one!
With the weather as unpredictable as ever, we can’t help but love the idea of a long sleeve cardigan. On the days it’s frigid outside, we can bundle up a little more with a robe-like cardigan and this is the perfect option that will keep up warm! What we love even more? The fact that when the wind starts to get in, or the sun decides to come out, we can easily roll up the sleeves for some much-needed breathability! We can’t help but how overlooked this feature is at times because it truly brings endless versability to the cardigan.
This piece transcends beyond winter, too, especially useful on those spring and summer nights when it’s sweltering hot around dinner time, but there’s a chill in the air by nightfall. This cardigan is easy to bring around since it works with just about any outfit and will be our saving grace when the temperatures drop.
Shoppers looking for something clean, crisp and classic will absolutely adore this black cardigan because it will go with literally everything and anything. This sweater can easily adapt with bold and striking colors paired underneath and can go from elegant to edgy in seconds, which makes this the one-and-only cardigan necessary in our closets!
We can’t help but mention that this cardigan style is also a favorite among many celebrities. Just look at Khloe Kardashian or Chrissy Teigen, who love the cardigan-duster mashup. Both A-listers frequently incorporate chic basic color cardigans into their looks for a fuss-free but sophisticated casual vibe.
We can’t help but take style cues from the stars and we recommend beginning with the perfect white tee. Next, we suggest adding a pair of casual leggings to keep it cozy and comfy, and pair off with a subtle-yet-sophisticated cross-body purse. We happen to think this delicate flower cross-body bag would be the perfect addition, with a pair of oversized hoops and larger-than-life sunglasses! Finish off with some black booties that can seamlessly transition from day-to-night. How fabulous is too fabulous!
Looking for something with a little more oomph? We’ve got the answer! Edge this ever-so-elegant cardigan up with a pair of high-waisted leather pants and go bold with a crop top tee underneath. Finish the look with some strappy stiletto sandals, and boom!
Shoppers looking for something more colorful? We can’t help but think of how amazing this would look over a simple white cami, paired with light-wash ripped jeans. We’d recommend adding a graphic tee with bright, bold designs and complete the outfit with black booties. The striking colors throughout the look will be balanced out with the classic black booties at the end. For shoppers looking to beat the heat, we’d even go as far as trading in the light-wash jeans for high-waisted denim cut-offs. Add a wide-brim hat and we’re festival-ready!
Shoppers looking for that one piece they can trust should look no further than this is the perfect cardigan. Remember to thank Us, later.
