3 Ways To Make A Cardigan Cool Again

Here's how we're styling our cardigans this winter.

We have to admit: We were a bit skeptical when we noticed cardigans slipping into the fall 2017 collections. Sure, Helena Christensen's turn on the catwalk at Perry Ellis' '93 show makes a fantastic case for the button-up knit, layered over her checked slip dress, hair tousled, lace-up boots a-stomping. But now? How are we to wear the cardigan in 2017?

This season, DSquared2 went for the Ellis aesthetic, with belted cami dresses worn under off-the-shoulder oversized knits, while Gucci took things to the ladylike extreme with heritage cardigans paired with strings of pearls and '20s knitted caps. We also loved Miu Miu's embroidered cardigan, styled with clashing prints, and Christopher Kane's pink number proved that colorblocked options can make a major statement.

Of course, the trend soon hit the streets, with even more inspired ways to wear the coziest knit of the season.


What to look for with this style? Big pockets, long lengths, and a deep, front-button V. Alternatively, boxy and fitted pieces work well with Fair Isle patterns or mohair fabrics.


Now this is how you make an entrance. Tiffany Hsu proves that if you're going to try a trend, you should make it the center piece of your outfit. Her hooded J.W.Anderson cardi ticks all the fall/winter trend boxes: fringed? Yup. Hooded? Yes. Oversized? You betcha. Colorblocked purple? Three cheers for the most eye-popping of this season's knitwear.

Of course, you don't have to go quite so bold to wear a statement cardigan. By simply choosing a vibrant color, a fun rainbow print, or a tactile fabric, your piece will be just as striking.


Want to tap into the trend without adjusting your wardrobe too much? Helena Bordon shows us how a cardigan can simply be thrown over a slogan T-shirt and jeans. Granted, hers is a Gucci number emblazoned with a lion's head and the words 'Blind For Love,' but the main takeaway here is the preppy aesthetic.

Amp up the heritage look with pleated skirts and mules, or replace your patchwork bomber jacket with racing stripes and letterman details.
