As we ease into holiday season, one Fall 2020 trend that’s reigning supreme is the cozy, comfy cardigan. No longer just librarian-chic, cardigans are having a serious moment thanks to influencers and celebrities like Katie Holmes and Taylor Swift even naming a song after the fashion piece. Katie Holmes broke the internet with that effortlessly cool cardigan look last year. Slouchy and oversized, or cropped and dainty, they’re the perfect cover up that looks a bit more polished than a zip up sweatshirt. You can even ditch the idea of a cover up and wear a cardigan as a top itself for an It-Girl vibe.
Coco Chanel is credited with creating cardigans for women in the 1920s because she hated the way mens sweaters pulled over her head messed up her hair. How simple and relatable especially when it comes to hair and make up. The cardigan is definitely the “every-girl” wardrobe staple. What other item in your closet feels like a hug when you put it on?!
