If you haven’t seen this cardigan all over social media by now then you probably have been living under a rock. Seriously, this free people cardigan is everywhere and is supposedly the “it” cardigan of the season but for the longest time I always wondered why?
I had passed by this cardigan in many different stores and didn’t even bother trying it on. To be honest, it reminded me a little bit of a sweater my grandmother used to own. That baggy, crochet looking material just looked like something she had worn…not to say I didn’t love her, but her style wasn’t something I envied. So I was very confused as to why this was such a popular cardigan.
When the “it” cardigan went on sale, I decided to order one and try it out. Once the package arrived I ran upstairs to try it on and to be honest I wasn’t instantly in love but I decided to keep it on for a little while and give it a try.
After a few hours I was starting to realize why everyone was raving about it. First of all it is warm! There is a good bit of wool in the material, but not too much that it’s itchy. Secondly, it can be paired with literally anything! I can style this baby so many different ways, as you can see below. It is a really warm and versatile cardigan and now I am starting to think that maybe my grandmother did know a thing or two about fashion.
Moral of the story… I decided to keep this cardigan because I do enjoy wearing it. I would definitely buy this baby on sale!
Okay, so if you own this cardigan and are looking for some inspiration on how to wear it or if cannot decided whether or not to buy the “it” cardigan… below I have styled it four different ways to show you how versatile it really is!
