Why You Should Always Keep A Cardigan In Your Closet

A cardigan is timeless and adaptable. There is truly no going wrong when it comes to this staple knit-wear. And although it may uphold the reputation of being old-fashioned, it has become a front runner in fashion essentials; by virtue of Coco Chanel who is often credited for introducing the cardigan into the fashion world.

If you don’t already own one, here are some reasons why you should introduce this piece to your wardrobe as soon as possible.

Cardigan Can Be Worn All Year Round

 From summer to winter and everything in between, a cardigan is the perfect go-to when you’re unsure what to wear. The thin knit is light enough to wear on a warm day or of good use when bundling up in the colder weather.

 A cardigan is even the perfect layering for those “cold in the morning, hot in the afternoon” days. 

It’s All About Comfort

 If going out in anything but a sweatshirt is a daily struggle, then we suggest you get a cardigan…or five. A cardigan will furnish comfortability while also giving a more fashionable appeal, something an old sweatshirt might not implement. And fortunately for us comfort dressers, an oversized cardigan is one of the most winsome trends at the moment. 

You Don’t Have To Worry About Wrinkles

Having to constantly iron clothing or be cautious about how you sit to avoid wrinkles can get tiring. Luckily with the knit material in a cardigan, you won’t have to worry about wrinkles, which ties right back into comfortability. You can move around in any way without the constant need to smooth over your top every once in a while. 

The Variety of Cardigans Are Endless

From button-downs to an open front, or ankle length and waist-length, the assortment of cardigans has no end. There is an option of knit-wear to style for quite literally any event. Whether you go with an ankle length and a pair of heels or a cropped look and sneakers, the unlimited possibilities make it simple to style a cardigan in any way.
