Right now I am wondering when I last saw a blogger/influencer wear a cardigan. Nowadays it is all about blazers and hoodies and the good old knitted cardigan kind of got lost along the way.
Although most bloggers name the Olsen Twins as their number one fashion inspiration, they all forget that they actually wear cardigans on a regular basis. Ashley sported some very brave choices, from super-granny to oversized, patchwork-y and floor length.
I personally love cardigans, especially for being warm, comfortable and if they are slouchy enough, you can snuggle up and feel even more cosy. Of course the material is important too. I recently picked up a mohair cardigan from Esprit and it is the ideal garment to wear right now. I think I speak for everybody who is cold all the time when I say Berlin is way too cold for this time of the year. The material and color were definitely the most important part in getting this cardigan, but the one thing that convinced me was the hood. You might know that I went to Hamburg two weeks ago and while it was literally pouring the whole weekend, I realized I don’t have any clothes that have a hood. While I have plenty of jumpers and sweatshirts, they all miss some sort of protection from the rain and wind. Ever since I got back, I was on a mission to find something with a hood, stumbled upon this beige cardigan and the rest is (shopping)history.
