According to global fashion search platform Lyst, in London, page views for cardigans increased 6% week on week, which is no surprise considering that many of us are spending a lot more time in our homes and in need of a fashion-based comfort blanket. Cardigans are also the ultimate in nostalgic knitwear, and the ideal throw-on layer that’s needed to get us through the day in the changeable temperatures of spring.
Interestingly, two of the most viewed brands brands that topped the list were not designer offerings, but Arket and & Other Stories. Clearly high street is the place to be right now when it comes to the cardigan. A bit of research online confirmed this, and let’s just say we now have a few new additions to our new season wishlists. From Arket’s clean-lined styles and Brora’s heritage Fair Isle, to Stories’s soft pastels and Warehouse’s cute cropped iterations, scroll down to shop our favourite cardigans on the high street now.
