Sweater Weather Is Better In A Chunky Cardigan
Each season, we all waiver between layering up like a mummy and finding the right pieces to keep us warm & stylish — until the extreme chill sets in. This year, to upgrade your chilly weather gear, it’s time to invest in a heavy weight chunky cardigan.
From prepsters to actual grandpas, cardigans have an interesting reputation as being a dated piece of menswear. But, it’s time to appreciate its true power as your new blazer 2.0. Perfectly crafted to be worn as a piece of outerwear that’s appropriate to wear indoors, a chunky cardigan turns up the cozy boy swagger in all of us. Not all cardigans are created equal and don’t have to be cable knit to be chunky. Double knit weaves are just a warm, but are sleek and perfect to be layered.
