The Simple, French-Inspired Knitwear Trend I'll Be Wearing on Repeat This Autumn

Best cardigans: beige ribbed cardigan and jeans



This ribbed beige cardigan looks amazing with just a pair of hoops and dark-wash jeans. 

The cardigan was long considered one of the frumpiest things you could wear, but after an endorsement by editors, influencers, designers and celebs they’ve become a chic staple. The cult cardigan became a thing in 2019, thanks to Katie Holmes and her Khaite set and a string of other sellout cardis. Years later and the humble cardigan is still one of our favourite piece to wear.

Cardigans with puff sleeves are proving popular this year. 

The key to making this item look relevant is to opt for soft-looking knitwear, which is as cosy as possible—the appeal of Katie Holmes’s infamous cardi is just how soft it is. Although you can’t beat beige, burgundy, and grey cardigans that are fitted to the body with small buttons, we’re also loving the jazzier vintage-style varieties available, too. Cardigans in punchy colours are trending this season, such as shades of pink thanks to the Barbiecore trend. We’re also really into printed and checked cardigans if you want something a little more out of the ordinary.  

Influencers can’t seem to get enough of them, either, as they keep wearing them in a multitude of ways. Keep scrolling to get all the cardigan outfit inspiration you need, then proceed to shop the best cardigans of 2023...
