18 Really Cool Cardigans

There’s nothing grannyish about this crop of on-trend cardis.

Long gone are the days when the cardigan was the sole preserve of the prim twinset and pearl brigade. Whether you plump for the graphic, the neon emblazoned, the preppy, the slouchy, the oversized or the classic, there is a look for practically every mood and every look. It has been a bitingly cold winter thus far; this edit of ultra-cool, on-trend cardis offers a stylish way in which to keep warm, all without invoking the spirit of Miss Marple (not that we’re knocking her look as worn by the inimitable Joan Hickson, mind you, but we digress).

Bundled up here are twenty (yes, the list keeps growing) very stylish ways in which to throw another layer on and cosy up for the last days of winter (at very long last), and to wear right through into the much anticipated and highly welcome fresh days of spring.
