The cardigan is a truly versatile garment that works both as an intermediate layer on a cold day and as a jacket when it’s milder out. Here are some of our favourites.
Cosy, dressy or long cardigan – a favourite model certainly varies depending on who you ask, but everyone agrees that cardigans are really functional garments. Stylish with jeans, worn over a dress or a blouse. Choose a material that’s warm enough and you’ll get a garment that works for most things.
Here are some of our favourites in the shops just now. Maybe you’ll find your own new favourite among them?
A cardigan doesn’t have to be prickly, but can just as easily be in a soft and comfortable material, like this fine knit cardigan from Vero Moda. This is a slightly more dressy and straight model of a slightly longer cut. This cardigan has a hood and external pockets, and is an open model with no buttoning at the front. If you like a longer garment that runs down a bit over your backside, this is perfect.
Few materials are as pleasant to wear as wool. It warms you when the weather is cold – even when the wool is wet – cools you when it’s hot, and has an almost magical built-in cleaning function thanks to its natural antibacterial properties. Wool garments last a long time without being washed and so they have a really long service life if properly taken care of.
This cardigan in a classic Scandinavian pattern has a normal fit, is available in several different colours and will become a close friend in your wardrobe for a long time to come.
A soft and comfortable cardigan from Only which is made of 81% acrylic and 19% polyester. V-neck with three buttons at the front and long, slightly narrower cuffs, which gives a nice fall to the sleeves.
The model is a slightly shorter type, so it looks good with high-waisted trousers or a long dress. Choose from five colours in different discreet tones.
A slightly longer cardigan is nice during the colder half of the year when you sometimes want a little extra warmth. This long cardigan from Only is available in several versions with both one-colour and three-colour block-patterned variants.
The material is a warm and soft mixture of 50% viscose, with the rest being nylon and polyester. An open model with two large front pockets and a loose fit.
A really good basic item in the wardrobe that works as a cardigan for the office or to dress up with a fancy blouse and a pair of stylish earrings. A bit like a cardigan disguised as a jacket.
The model is form fitting and slightly flared at the bottom. The weave of the fabric gives the cardigan a slightly more exclusive look, and it looks just as nice open as closed, thanks to the zip on the front.
Think combination. Party and office. Home cosiness and work. Warm and stylish. Choose a cardigan with more than one property.
Long or short? How will it go with your current wardrobe? Would a waist-length, thigh-length or calf-length model work best with your other clothes?
Check the washing instructions. If you know in advance that you’ll never go to the dry-cleaners, there’s no point buying a garment that can’t be machine washed. Choose a material that’s as easy as possible to take care of.
