The shoulder season has officially arrived, and knowing how to dress in the ‘in-between’ weeks from the end of summer to the start of fall can be a tricky business. Luckily, the humble cardigan is back in fashion, and available for all your layering needs.

The cardigan is that rare fashion jewel: a versatile, practical piece that can easily make (or break) a statement look. The Fall/Winter 2017 catwalks were awash with them, and the trend remained strong throughout the Resort 2018 collections. Here’s how the fashion industry is suggesting you cover up this season.

1) Monochrome: A lightweight cardigan is the perfect way to tap into the monochrome trend without the overall look becoming too overbearing. Matching loudly printed cardigans to trousers and turtle necks adds extra impact.

2) As a jacket: A sharp, belted cardigan can be an excellent way of elevating an outfit to business lunch level without actually adding formalwear. Think a tailored cardigan that is nipped in at the waist for a more formal silhouette.

3) Under suits: Alternatively, you could opt to throw on a cardigan under a formal suit jacket for a fresh take on three-piece formal-wear. Up your sex appeal by adding a glimpse of lingerie, replacing the shirt in the suit lineup.

4) Cropped: Crop tops and bra tops continue to rule the streetwear scene, so it comes as no surprise that cardigans are shortening their hemlines, too. The mini-cardigan is the statement for this season.
