Are Cool Again
A dozen of the ultimate layers to wear right now
It's hard not to like a cardigan, right? They keep you warm, like a cozy knit hug, but they're also easy to pull on and off as needed. What's more they have the ability to transform an average outfit into a Insta-worthy fit ready to impress. The key is taking a little bit of a risk when it comes to your button-up knitwear.
How you wear a cardigan in 2019/2020 is slightly different than in the past. These aren't slim, solid-colored layers skimming a dress shirt. These are boldly colored, richly textured and feature statement-making graphics. Treat your cardigan like a flannel replacement and layer it over a lightweight T-shirt, push the sleeves up, and pair it with some nice work pants. Or go for a big, chunky one and wear it over a denim shirt with your favorite boots like a genuine tough guy.
Go ahead and mix colors and prints. There's an easygoing elegance to wearing a cardigan—even if said sweater is loud and made to stand out. Which is why enviable guys like Harry Styles and Tyler the Creator are wearing them so frequently these days. So make sure your cold weather wardrobe has at least one good one—you'll get more use from it than you think.
