Take note: the button-down knit is no longer just for nanna
Take notes from your nanna and put this piece on high rotation.
After years scaling your knitwear pile, the humble, cuddly cardigan has been crowned a new-season statement piece. Feminist labels like Prada and Marni are longtime cardie champions (it’s the unofficial symbol of the women’s movement) and with its go-anywhere versatility, it’s little wonder. Go large with a chunky Diy-style knit or go minimal with a super-fine ribbed version. Wear it all buttoned up, tucked into trousers and layered under coats. Or style it in a way that would make your granny proud: over a floaty dress when it’s not quite jacket weather but there’s still a chill in the air.
