Is it possible for a single piece of clothing to be polished and preppy, and simultaneously relaxed and cool? The answer is a resounding yes, and 2019's cardigan trend is proof. The simple knit style is staying strong this season, and showing no signs of slowing down — thanks to its ability to add effortless elegance to quite literally any ensemble. And if you've yet to stock up on the basic, you'll want to shop the just-dropped cardigans in W Concept's new arrivals to get in on the cool trend before everyone else.
When you want a piece that layers well or can be worn alone, and looks just as good with jeans as it does with your favorite workwear, look no further than the do-it-all cardigan. The sweet knit masterfully elevates even your most mundane jeans-and-top outfits (peep Claire Foy's off-duty look for proof), but feels just as stylish when worn with a super-feminine slip skirt and strappy shoes. And as luck would have it, W Concept's new arrivals are chock full of cool, modern takes on the cardigan so you can stock your closet STAT.
For weekend wear, opt for relaxed or cropped styles that can be layered now, and worn alone when spring brings slightly warmer weather. Kindersalmon's classic cotton style, $188, features big, statement-making buttons that give it a casual vibe — try pairing with a denim jacket and jeans for a cool take on the Canadian tuxedo. For a draped, loose style, try the Replain Dark Navy Twist Wool Knit Outer, $317, you can style over a sleek turtleneck, or tie and wear as a crop.
Longer styles are equally as versatile, ideal for layering over office outfits or throwing on to elevate a date night look. Replain's Sepia Wool Long Cardigan, $278, comes in a beige color and a muted blue, both of which can be worn buttoned-up completely to style as a dress or unbuttoned with your go-to trousers. While decidedly sleek and modern, the v-neck and subtle color palettes still nod to the classic quality of the style, so the trendy piece still feels timeless.
If you didn't already jump on the cardigan trend when it started last fall, you're in luck since it doesn't seem to be going anywhere this season. And with so many cool ways to wear the versatile style, stocking up means you'll have no shortage of ensembles in rotation well into spring.
