Style File | Mini Trend: The Cardigan for Spring Days

@sincerelyjules

Have been observing from afar, the invitées attending the Dior fashion show here in Paris the other day, and noticed a new mini trend that has had a special place in street style a for a few months now, but it's a trend that is here to stay for a while: the cardigan.

"A cardigan is a knitted sweater with a buttoned or zipped front, with a V or round neck, with or without a collar.  The cardigan takes its name from the 7th Earl of Cardigan, James Thomas Brudenell (1797-1868)" ―The Dreamstress

Known for its versatility and cosiness, the cardigan “remained popular in Europe and the US throughout the rest of the 19th century, but was still rightly categorized as a jacket, tending to be short, close-fitting, and collarless. Late in the century, a short roll collar, often velvet, was sometimes added. The cardigan got a makeover in the early 20th century, crossing genders in the process. As early as 1908, Vogue borrowed the coat-style knit from menswear and promoted a cardigan-like apparel for women’s use in golfing and tennis as part of the growing craze for sportswear and knits." (Racked)

From war to menswear, the working class and sailors, to eventually moving from menswear in the late 1880s, to its current incarnation as a staple in every fashion girl's closet, here are some of my favourite ways to wear this (lasting) mini trend...
