7 Cardigans I'll Be Wearing This Fall, Because The Cozy Aesthetic Is Actually Everything

It’s safe to say that growing up, I was a huge cardigan fan (TBH, who wasn't?). I had one in every shade of the rainbow, from pastel pink to mint green with sparkly embellishments and everything in between. Every outfit was given a chic touch (and a bit of warmth) with a cardigan layered on top. While I haven’t reached for one of the trusty button-up cardigans of my youth since my Betty Cooper Halloween costume called for it, that’s about to change.

Button-up cardigans are having a major comeback, thanks in part to brands like Miu Miu and Alexander Wang who included their own variations on the piece in their runway collections. Now, the 90s staple is hitting the streets and has already been spotted on countless celebrities from Rachel Bilson to Margot Robbie. Rather than pairing them with the ruffled mini-skirts of years past, think cardigans juxtaposed with distressed denim to give the 90s trend a 2019 twist.
