A Buyer’s Guide to the Best… Winter Cardigans | Life and style
Once considered old-fashioned, the cardigan is experiencing a renaissance, with Taylor Swift even writing a song about the knitwear favorite last year.
There is a wide range to consider. Color blocks – especially in fall hues, like rust or mustard – are a good place to start. Models with a V-neck might work well with those on a D cup.
Cardigans aren’t just classic, however. They can add something playful to a weekday outfit. Old fashioned knits found second hand provide a cute and comfortable feel. Original brands like Cinta are worth checking out on rental sites.
The treasures can be found in vintage stores and online. Consider channeling Nancy Mitford in a classic twinset, Marilyn Monroe on the beach in something chunkier, or Betty Draper from Mad Men.
