If you’re a regular reader of Who What Wear, you’ll already know about our love affair with cardigans. But we’re not just talking any type of cardigans… Sure, there’s a time and place for slouchy grandpa-style silhouettes, but today we’re paying our attention to a much more delicate style we’re seeing fashion girls wearing everywhere from Tokyo to Paris.
We’re talking shrunken, cropped, fitted, lightweight cardigans that will most likely conjure up images of your grade-school teacher, preppy ladies who lunch, and neat freak Monica Geller in Friends. But cool girls, celebrities, and even royalty (Kate Middleton was recently seen sporting one) are putting their personal spin on the trend, showing us that a button-down knit can look thoroughly fresh and modern.
Just take a peek below to see how stylish women around the world are styling the pretty little pearl cardigan by French fashion influencer Adenorah’s brand, Musier Paris. From pairing the knit with jazzy leopard-print pants to layering the cardigan with faux-fur coats and plenty of layered necklaces, these women are sure to inspire you on how to style your newest knitwear obsession.
