From school uniforms to your grandmother’s closet, cardigans haven’t always had the chicest of associations. But this season, you can forget what you think you know about them: as seen draped around the shoulders of fashion’s finest including AnneLaure Mais Moreau, Jeanne Damas and Camille Charrière, FW18’s cardi iterations are the coolest pieces to be seen in now.
For playful, standout options, look to Alanui, Etro and Marni. Marc Jacobs and Prada are all about bright color, while Miu Miu, Acne Studios and The Row offer subtler alternatives. Wear yours over a ladylike midi dress for day with some chunky boots, or with a pair of slouchy pants and barely there sandals for an unexpected hi-low mix.
