The Trans-Seasonal Staple You Need This Year.
It may feel like the depths of winter right now but pretty soon spring will be just around the corner and we'll need to start thinking about how to dress for the new season ahead. One way to emerge in style from our cold weather hibernation is making sure your wardrobe has that one trans-seasonal staple that you can wear all year round. So what is it we need to invest in, you ask? Cardigans.
Once worn by men in the mid 18th century Crimean war, now a gender-neutral layer with the versatility to be worn under a coat in the winter or over a dress in the summer. We've seen them on the recent runways for Chanel, Self-Portrait, Nanushka, Molly Goddard, Simone Rocha & Emilia Wickstead and they're currently being worn and styled in lots of fun and innovative ways by our favourite social media influencers.
The easy-wearability of cardigans is why it's referred to as a trans-seasonal item. When we get into that awkward time between summer and autumn when temperatures aren't quite warm enough to leave the house in just a T-shirt anymore, or the time between winter and spring when you get a little bit flushed wearing your heavy winter coat on the way to work - the cardigan will be your reliable go-to item you can chuck under or over any outfit you have planned. Luckily, we have such a great range of button-front knits in this season, you'll be thinking to yourself 'Am I buying another cardigan, again?' Discover our brands that will have you endlessly adding to your cardi wishlist.
