When you think of cardigans, you may think of your dear old grandpa, but we are here to tell you that cardigans can be extremely fashionable. Now available in a multitude of styles – cable knits, double-breasted, lightweight, etc. – a cardigan can effortlessly give you a polished look while simultaneously keeping you cosy and warm.

If you’re willing to give the cardigan a chance, which frankly you should, these are the best brands to purchase from for ultimate style and quality.
