Cardigans are the ideal companion at all times of year: wrap up warm on cool summer evenings and icy winter days in a cosy cardigan made from cotton or cashmere. In classic black, grey or white, women's cardigans go with virtually any outfit. Knit cardigans are also perfect for when on the go. The variety of lengths and cuts allows for extremely varied mix-and-match options. The longer, loosely flowing cardigans are above all practical in the winter. Their wider cut means they can also be worn over long-sleeved tops and pullovers. Shorter, tailored jackets or boleros can be worn at the turn of the seasons and in the summer over a colour-coordinated top. This combination has something of the classic twinset look to it. For cooler autumn days, elegant cardigans are ideal when it is still too warm for a pullover. Recreate a classic look and combine a knit cardigan with a white blouse. Alternatively, go for a somewhat sportier look and pair with jeans and a shirt in a contrasting colour. Women's cardigans in a poncho style are extremely flattering: they gently outline the form. When combined with slim-fit trousers and trendy accessories, a poncho completes a modern everyday outfit.
