We Have Ourselves Another Comeback Kid: The '90s Shrunken Cardigan

Just lightweight enough for our equatorial climate.

Amidst the oversized blazers, knits and puffer jackets at the fore of the latest fashion trends, we’re seeing something different (read: body-conscious) on the runways, streets and well, Instagram. Case in point? The good ol’ cardigan. But unlike the frumpy or boring ones your office has no lack of, we’re talking about a comeback style that had its moment in the ’90s and early ’00s: the shrunken cardigan.

Fitted, cropped and with perhaps a dipped neckline, the garment traces the fine line between sexy and modest. Bonus: it’s literally almost everywhere-appropriate — whether you’re headed to a meeting or brunch with friends. Style inspiration, above.
