Remember when Katie Holmes wore that luxe cashmere-cardigan-and-bra ensemble? (Her barely-buttoned look sold out in just one hour.) Despite its virality, the understatedly chic mix of cardigan plus is still going strong—especially in New York where the weather can be described as transitional at best.
Despite its somewhat blasé reputation, cardigans are the perfect alternative to fall favorites, like three-quarter-inch sleeve leather jackets or classic turtlenecks. Cardigans also work well on their own in an unexpectedly cool and slightly sexy way—wider necklines and a cropped fit give a sultry, yet cozy vibe.
From extra-long cardigans to cropped knits, this humble sweater is a definite must-have.
