Just like dad sneakers and mum jeans have stuck around as millennial staples, it seems your grandmother’s cardigan is the newest must-have item that can be stolen from a family member.
Seen on runways over the past few seasons, cardigans are finally getting the love they so deserve in the real world, popping up on the street everywhere from London to New York with It girls putting their own spin on the cozy knit. Taking cues from Chanel’s shrunken ‘Cha-nel’ logo version or Ganni’s longline, oversized iterations, the street style set tucked in or layered their favourite cardigans with ease.
Whether you wear yours buttoned up and tucked into jeans or layered under a trench, the humble Nanna knit deserves a spot in your winter rotation. Plus, with Australia’s ever-warming weather, it’s the perfect way to add warmth to an autumn wardrobe without overdoing it in the wool department. Not convinced? See below for proof you cardi-can pull off your grandmother’s favourite piece.
