From second best to Fashion’s ‘it’ knit, the once humble cardigan has made a stylish comeback. No longer banished to the back of the wardrobe, we’re wearing our cardis loud and proud in our #cottagecore ‘fits. Forget the frumpy connotations, cardigans are cool now (trust us). We’re pretty sure we have Harry Styles to thank but here are some other iconic cardigan moments and looks that may have played a part in this unexpected revival …

We all remember that Katie Holmes bradigan moment. It made the internet go into meltdown and brought the forgotten twin set back on our radar. Who knew you could look that chic in a brown knitted bra/cardi combo? Try and break the internet yourself in this super chic set …

You know we love a monogrammed number so it’s no surprise that we fell hard for Ashley Roberts button up look. She’s killing the cardi game in our fave print and making this comeback hard to resist. Take note and style your knit like Ashley with matching neutral shades or go a step further and brave a matching monogram set. Shop these guaranteed head turners …

Think long cardigans are frumpy? Think again. The queen of luxe loungewear, Hailey Bieber, has given longer knits an impressive rebrand and we’re fully on board. Perfect for transitional dressing, swap your OTT winter coat for a cosy long knit that you can wrap around your ‘fit like a blanket. Treat yourself to a matching set complete with chic maxi cardi, vest and cute knitted shorts.

When the models are wearing it you know the trends going to be huge. From Bella Hadid to Kaia Gerber, the big names are loving their ‘90s cardigan top style. No longer just a layering piece now the cardigan is the star of the show. Wear your slim fit cardi buttoned up as top with long slung jeans and an oh so ‘90s shoulder bag to complete the throwback vibe.

To celebrate the release of her latest album, “Folklore” and the music video for track “Cardigan”, Taylor sent out special cardigan press packages to all her famous friends. Ours seems to have got lost in the post but there’s no bad blood because we’ve got a great dupe. Chunky, oh so cosy and could be the real thing!
