Autumn’s comfiest fashion trend
With luxe fabrics, funky designs and cool silhouettes, cardigans have never been cooler. Here are seven of our favourite online buys 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 sustainable classic
A big knit, long cardi from new British knitwear brand, Cara and the Sky – a business conscious of its fashion footprint. This hug in a knit is vegan-friendly, on-trend and yet timeless and is available from Newbury boutique and online shop Fifi & Moose. The perfect autumn addition to keep you toasty.
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.
The Style steal
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 lush layer
Channel your inner Darcey Bussell and wear this cardi to the barre… or even the bar. This super-flattering nude wrap knit from B The Lifestyle Shop in Newbury is your new wardrobe workhorse – get sassy with a lacy bra peaking out a la Katie Holmes or layer it up over dresses and polo necks. It's a keeper.
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.
