How to wear your cardigan x La Redoute

The cardigan returns: How to wear it without looking frumpy!

Take cardigans for example, which have become a key outerwear piece this winter and beyond. Perfect for dreary January days when most people want to wear their warmest, most comfortable attire, the cardigan is a knitted version of a dressing gown. The cardi hasn’t been fashionable since the 90s, when it was worn in a dishevelled, grungy way; oversized styles loosely thrown over dresses and Levi’s 501s.

But now, thanks to the patronage of the catwalks and influencers, the cardigan is returning to the fore once again.

The easiest way to wear the cardigan is over straight-leg jeans and a T-shirt – oversized styles are key to prevent your look from being twee. Or tuck it into high-waisted trousers without a T-Shirt for a slimmer silhouette. Alternatively, invest in a fine knit version and belt it over a midi skirt – a great winter workwear option. They’re also a great way of dressing down an evening look when worn over dresses.
