No longer the reserve of your local librarian, the humble cardigan has, in recent seasons, had a haute makeover. Not only is this clever layer your secret weapon when it comes to nailing tricky trans-seasonal style, it’s also a sure-fire way to add a little personality to your off-duty look. Whether you’re drawn to Mother of Pearl’s oversized checks or Missoni’s tie-dye designs, be sure to opt for a fit that’s suitably oversized for maximum comfort and style mileage. Then proceed to wear it with everything. Seriously: this is one of those fail-safe pieces that can be shrugged on over blue jeans, diaphanous dresses and silky slip skirts.
