The Cardigan Comeback – It’s Not Just For Preppies, I Promise

It’s officially sweater weather, which brings me to one of my favorite trends of the season—cardigans. From the waist up, cardigans read prim, proper, and extremely preppy, but that doesn’t mean that the rest of your outfit has to. So, how do you not look like a Stepford wife while rocking a pastel colored sweater set à la Miu Miu Fall ’16? Throw it over your shoulders, pair it with a little leather mini, and rock one of fall’s biggest shoe trends, studded ankle boots, for a look that reads less school girl and more 90’s supermodel. Here, the cutest cardis of the season from Rachel Green inspired knits to Kurt Cobain style coverups. Simply scroll down to shop some of my favorite cardigans below.
