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.
