It’s time for you to get a cardigan


Now is the time for a cardigan. He’s been back for the past few years and is now here to stay for the foreseeable future. It is written in the fashion the stars and the spinning leaves are mother nature’s signal that it’s time to coat yourself in layers. And the cardigan might just be the ultimate layer. It’s easier to put on than a sweater; easier to remove when the weather gets hotter than expected; and its open front design makes it easy to see all the layers you’re wearing.

Between ivy and workwear, Scottish heritage and streetwear, the cardigan takes many forms. So what do you identify with welcome of an acoustic set of your greatest successes, raising sheep, animating a some neighbors Where drink a milkshake, there is a cardigan for you. If you are looking to layer yourself, give them a try.

Best overall cardigan

V-neck cardigan sweater

This Scotland-made cardigan balances both new and old. It builds on Jamieson of Shetland’s long legacy of heavy knits, but is comparatively streamlined. There are retro tinted football leather buttons to boot.

Best upgrade cardigan

Wool cardigan

Fine French luxury brand De Bonne Facture relies on an Italian workshop for its wool cardigans, which has been in business just outside Milan since 1977.

Best affordable cardigan

Long-sleeved lambswool cardigan

We say it over and over again, but you can’t go wrong with Uniqlo. This lambswool cardigan is no exception: it’s soft, fit and super inexpensive.

Checked knit cardigan on the left back

The YMC cardigan checks all the boxes: it’s oversized without being bulky, patterned and pleasantly soft from the first wear.

Mohair cardigan

New Zealand brand Checks Downtown has mastered the cardigan. The fledgling brand has made a few of them in a few different colors, but honey, as seen here, is probably our favorite.

Ribbed cashmere cardigan

This option combines the softness of cashmere with the structure provided by the ribbed knits. In addition, there are small cuffs for a higher look.

Cashmere cardigan sweater

Simple but more, this is a cute olive green cardigan from J. Crew. It’s crafted from cashmere and features six buttons for a higher, more secure neckline.

Checked cardigan

What’s the point of wearing a cardigan if you can’t have fun with it? Todd Snyder’s iteration dates back to the ’70s, bowling alleys, and bad (but here? Good) wallpapers.

Mohair knit cardigan

Brownstone’s bright blue cardigan features contrasting buttons, loose sleeves and two front bucket pockets.

Floral jacquard knit cardigan

Beams Plus’ cardigan is made from virgin materials, but it looks like it was reused from someone’s sick old stuffing. If you’ve been careful lately, the rugs are here.

Kura curly virgin wool-blend cardigan

This one from A Kind of Guise could easily replace a blazer. Because it’s curly, there’s softness and structure. Plus, the raised ribbon around the buttons gives it a cuff-like look.

Will O The Wisp Vest

With a cool name like Will O The Wisp, you know the cardigan from Antwerp brand Howlin had to look cool too. And that’s the case. It is a rich wine red color with a classic cut.

Fleece cardigan

If you’re worried about slipping into a cardigan, then do so. It’s almost a bomber, with its wool fleece body, high buttons and stand-up collar.

Shetland Cardigan

Again, this iteration of Pendleton is almost seen as a jacket and not a cardigan. It buttons up to the top, has a slight collar and a straight shape.

Alpine wool cardigan

The Corridor Alpwool cardigan, made from a blend of alpaca and merino wool, was made in Peru by the brand’s partner workshop. The wild orange color is just warm enough for fall – and the sweater will be too.

3A wooden cardigan

Check this one out. It’s made by Inverallan, a team of knitters established in Scotland in the 1970s. They sell a lot of their own products on their own site, but the best of the bunch, in my opinion, comes in tons of different retailers. You can find an option like this 3A wooden cardigan at an amazing price.

Mohair Cobain Cardigan

Named after Kurt Cobain’s favorite (and probably musty) mohair cardigan, Jelado’s Cobain cardigan comes in some sort of ombre color, starting with black, then white, pink, gray, gray plus. dark, gray again and black once more.
