Cute and Comfy: the Charm of the Cardigan

The cardigan is a classic fashion that masquerades as a comfy sweater; one that comes in particularly handy in the cool weather months of autumn. And thankfully, today’s best retailers are feeding this trend with a rich and colourful selection of luxury cardis!

For a whisper, soft pearl pink take on the cardigan concept, John Lewis introduces the Extra Fine Cashmere Cardigan. The ultimate in casual luxury, this lovely cashmere sweater hangs loose and opens in the front; its lush cut, rib detailing and long sleeves making for the ultimate example of high class comfort wear. Wear it to a luncheon or tea, or for a day of shopping with the gals.

There’s really nothing slouchy about the Boohoo Chenille Slouchy Cardigan, a whisper soft chenille cardigan available through ASOS.Com. Sporting functional pockets and an open front, this sleek ebony sweater also comes embellished with ribbed trims and will grace your body with a nice, infinitely warm casual fit. Ideal for both work and study days, this is a flawless example of ‘comfort clothes!’

Adding a lovely floral touch to the trendy cardigan concept, Ted Baker brings us the Kellia Sketchbook Floral cardigan; an ebullient ecru sweater embossed with shiny gilded buttons, elegant ribbed cuffs, and a beautiful scarlet-hued floral print. Merging the finer points of the summer and winter wardrobe, this just may be the ideal and ultimate fall season cardigan; one perfect for both day and evening wear.

For a longer and more luxurious take on the cardigan concept, PrettyLittleThing brings us the Stone Knitted Waterfall Cardigan. This stately stone-coloured sweater is a lightly textured but infinitely warming sweater that will make a fine addition to your cool weather wardrobe. With its neutral colour and flowing fit, this sweater coat also would make a fine finishing touch to any number of sleek seasonal outfits.

Forever 21 offers a classy tasselled take on the cardigan design, by way of the Dolman Sleeve Sweater Cardigan. This body-succouring work of cotton and acrylic comes complete with quaint shawl collar and tasselled trim, dolman-style sleeves and a high-low hem. The perfect merging of modern and traditional styles, this trendy take on the classic shawl is perfect for work, school, or for luncheons and teas.

It’s long past time to bring back the cardigan; both cute and classy, today’s cardis are nothing short of couture!
