Why Can I Not Stop Thinking About The Perfect Cardigan?

Looking out the window of Vogue House, I would be forgiven for thinking it is the middle of winter. Grey skies, constant drizzle and a distinct nip in the air, is summer really just around the corner? Surely not.

While I should be getting excited about breezy cotton dresses, strappy sandals and packing away my hairdryer – I’m finding myself distracted in the search for the perfect cardigan.

How To Cut Out The Chafe This Summer

Cosy, comforting and just the right amount of warmth, the perfect button up can take those perfect summer pieces and make them wearable in this – quite frankly – offensive pre-summer weather.

I’m not the only one that understands the allure of a button up this time of year. There’s Bella Hadid who wears hers sans top and bra, layered under denim with cosy UGG slippers. Bella’s crew neck cardi comes in a rosy pink hue that stays on the right side of the monstrous Dolores Umbridge school of style.

Kaia Gerber has two favourite ways to wear: simple and very ’90s with a floral slip and lace-up Chucks or a more executive realness take on the cardigan by throwing on an oversized blazer with cut-off shorts.

The best in show right now come courtesy of high street stalwarts Marks & Spencer and Uniqlo. Cashmere is the ultimate. You get what you pay for and, trust me, once you put it on it will remain that way from here on in.

Shop a size that fits snug to the body. Think ’90s Rachel Green in Friends. You want to be able to wear it like Bella, Kaia and sometimes me with nothing underneath, but still with the luxurious option of throwing over shoulders on sunny days that lead to chilly evenings.

They might not be waterproof but they sure are handy ahead of the real summer starting, which is next week? Right? Please.
