From school uniforms to your grandmother’s closet, cardigans haven’t always had the chicest of associations. But in recent seasons, the cardigan has become a fundamental part of the trans-seasonal wardrobe, thanks to its easy-wearing appeal and layering prowess. This winter, as we spend an increased amount of time indoors, the cardigan has gained even more relevance as we gravitate towards warmer pieces that are cozy and comfortable. Plus, a cardigan is, of course, ideal to shrug on over your everyday staples. This season, look to fashion’s finest, including Erika Boldrin, TyLynn Nguyen and Naomi Elizée, for style inspiration.

For playful, standout options, look to Miu Miu’s collegiate button-ups trimmed with bows, or Stella McCartney’s colorful grunge-inspired pieces, while Lauren Manoogian, Prada and The Row offer subtler alternatives. Wear yours over loose-cut utilitarian pants with some chunky boots by day, or layer over midi dresses and barely-there sandals for an unexpected evening look.
