Out of all our knitwear options, cardigans arguably have the greatest nostalgic associations, and while they might remind us of our school days, 2021's high-street iterations are anything but childish. The ideal throw-on layer for the changeable British late summer, I've been wearing mine when sat at my desk and in need of warming or an extra layer, or when the temperature drops in the evening.
Two of the brands that top our AW21 wishlist are not designer offerings, but Arket and & Other Stories. Clearly, the high street is the place to be right now when it comes to cardigans. A bit of online research confirmed this, and let's just say we now have a few new additions to our new season capsule. From Arket's clean-lined styles and H&M's longline knits to Stories's ccolour pop hues and Mango's cute checked iterations, scroll down to shop our favourite cardigans on the high street now.
