If the humble cardigan wasn't a staple in your wardrobe before last year, chances are it is now. Personally, I've always been a fan of the knitted cover-up (although I love jumpers, I prefer the way cardigans look and sit on my bigger bust), and it seems that all of fashion has come round to my way of thinking.
Gone are the days when cardigans were considered dowdy, or dare I say it, boring. Now, designers have reimagined the cardigan in a multitude of stylish ways, making it a must-have in any closet, regardless of what your aesthetic may be. And as we head into spring, there are new cardigan trends for 2021 beginning to emerge.
From statement faux-fur trims to pretty and nostalgic floral embroidery, the cardigans on offer this season will instantly elevate your basic jeans-and–T-shirt uniform or will add a preppy, quaint flourish to your dresses. So keep scrolling to see the knitted wonders just waiting to be discovered.
Jumbo collars are still very much a part of spring's style agenda, and now you needn't layer your cardigan over a collar-endowed blouse to achieve this look—many cardigans now come with crochet or lace built-in.
