You may have already noticed that ‘all things 90s’ have been talk of the fashion town lately and this sweater weather has resurrected another 90’s child aka cardigans. They might have been previously associated with our grandmas, but with a cool and unexpectedly stylish makeover, cardigans are a fresh breath of air amidst winter regulars i.e. turtlenecks and chunky knit pullovers.

Serving as a chic and practical layering piece, you can style them buttoned-up, open or anywhere in between giving you endless styling possibilities everyday of the season. Like you can layer a cardigan over your beloved summer dresses or simply wear them as a blouse with a pair of jeans. Taking cues from Sabina Socol (@sabinasocol), you can even accessorize the look with 90s-esque chain belt for added nostalgic vibes.
Bare shoulders have been having a moment for quite some time now, so you can follow in the steps of Alexandra Lapp (@alexandralapp_) and pull your cardigan over your shoulders. And don’t forget to thank Alexandra for finding a way to make cardigans sexy. Though if oversized is your vibe, then make sure you balance the proportions. Either simply throw the cardigan over a T-shirt/pullover and jeans like Jecky (@wantgetrepeat) or layer it over a jumpsuit or midi skirt like Bettina Looney (@bettinalooney) and Susie Lau (@susiebubble) to get yourself a startling yet chic look. For extra brownie points, bring together complementary bright shades in your outfit just like Aimee Song (@songofstyle) and Masoom Minawala (@missstylefiesta).
With full support of fashion girls, cardigans are making a major statement, so give your fuzzy coats a break and add a cardigan or two to your winter wardrobe. Even better if you find a vintage piece in your grandma’s closet
