Fashion People Think This Sweater Style Is Elite

Sweater weather is something I spend half of the year looking forward to and the other half embracing. But what about the humble cardigan? I have a theory: Winter comes and goes, but cardigans don’t have a particular season. Excluding the sartorial necessities of extremely hot or cold days, a cardigan is a versatile piece you should always have on hand. I always have one draped over my office chair and never forget to stow one in my carry-on with a water bottle and a good book—they have that much staying power, regardless of color, material, or style. 

One of my favorite types is the collared cardigan, a versatile and timeless iteration that comes in a number of styles, from zip-up and button-down to fitted and loose. Some of my most coveted collared cardigans have pointed collars, while others have dainty Peter Pan collars. Suffice to say: The options are endless. To help you narrow down your options, I curated a list of my favorites.
