The Comeback Cardigan

Sweaters dominated our winter wardrobes, but with the coming of spring a new knitwear star has emerged: the cardigan. From Rihanna's granny chic, to the runways of Christoper Kane, there is no doubting the trend.

Cardigans, once associated with librarians and teachers, are on the cusp of a fashion moment. Christopher Kane and Louis Vuitton's runway shows featured neat twinset styles, whilst Chanel opted for a sexier approach, with nothing underneath.

Cardigan designs have recently been worn by celebrities including Suki Waterhouse, Alexa Chung and Rihanna too.

When it comes to a battle against sweaters, I think cardigans have the upper hand. Not only do they allow you to wear something stylish underneath, and you can take them off without ruining your hair. But they work as a sort of transitional item- not thick enough for a coat, but warm enough as we enter springtime.

Then there's the 1970's cardigan, which possesses a cool thrift-store vibe. It demonstrates how once again fashion trends have come full circle, for I recently purchased an over-sized, beige piece- perfect over a chic croptop and shorts for sunny days.

What do you think of the trend? Comment below! :)
