Layer Up In This Season’s Essential Cardigans

If there’s one thing in our wardrobes that we love more than jumpers, it’s the ever-trusty cardigan. V-neck, round neck, waterfall and wrap around – there’s a style and shape for everyone. Whether they’re worn for function or fashion, simply put, the cardigan is something no woman can do without.

During these chillier months and even on balmy summer evenings, the cardigan comes to the rescue, keeping out the cold and adding an elegant touch to any outfit. They have all the warmth of a jumper, but none of the heft. They can be worn open, buttoned-up or halfway done depending on your mood. In other words, they’re the most versatile item in your wardrobe.
