17 Cardigans Your Librarian Would Never Wear

It’s no secret that cardigans have a bad rap. Just the mention of them tends to immediately evoke comparisons to grandmothers and librarians, but if you ask this editor, such a feeling is unjust in 2016. Sure, not all cardigans are cool, and some look like they should be in a museum rather than a store, but if you look around, thanks to some of our favorite designers and brands, many of them are not just wearable but actually quite covetable. From Off-White’s zipper-adorned bright blue option to Zara’s simple yet effective version to Gucci’s new take on a classic style, there are countless options that will have you hopping on the cardigan train sooner than you can say Add to Cart.

Naturally, what follows this soliloquy is a roundup of our favorite ones to shop. Get started below!
