I love me a cozy cardigan, so I couldn’t be more excited that they’re back in style in a big way. I”m always cold, so even in summer, I’m never without a cardigan to throw on. But I love how now they’re a statement piece themselves, with people wearing them with everything from jeans to dresses. A cardigan is the perfect layering piece, but it also looks really chic on it’s own buttoned up over jeans.
For awhile, cardigans had the reputation of looking dowdy or campy, but there are so many ways to style a cardigan to make it feel fresh and chic. Cardigans in every silhouette and cut are everywhere right now, so it’s easy to find one that you feel good in and works with the rest of your closet. I love longer ones to wear over leggings or with dresses. Cropped cardigans and high-waisted mom jeans are a look that’s big right now with the celeb and Gen Z crowd. To be honest, it’s not my thing anymore, but I love how it looks on Hailey Bieber. I prefer a cozy, slightly oversized cardigan with a great pair of cropped mom jeans or even joggers, and some cute sneakers or flats. It’s my go-to work from home or weekend mom look.
In my opinion, this trend is worth investing it. Cardigans are always a key layering piece year-round. They have great options at H&M (love this one) but for more splurge-worthy investment cardigans, I love this one. If you’re looking to get in on the trend or want some new ideas for how to wear your old cardis, here are my favorite ideas for how to style a cardigan.
