Our Highsnobiety Fall/Winter Style Guide is here to help you bring the heat as the weather cools down. From curated picks to trend forecasting, we have everything you need to season-proof your rotation.

The humble cardigan has had a veritable glow-up in recent seasons. Hitting the runway and with regular outings on style icon's backs, the days when a cardigan was reserved for your granddad are long gone. In fact, it's probably time to raid his cupboard for any knitwear you can steal.

From street style OG Pharrell to the G.O.A.T. that is Kendrick Lamar, the cardigan's rightful place as a must-have wardrobe element for any modern rotation has been cemented.

However, nobody has backed the corner of cardigans quite like Tyler, The Creator. Whether he's creating them with his own line Golf Wang or wearing them day-to-day, the musician's love of a cardigan has remained strong for over five years.

The California native remains unphased by seasons when wanting to rock his favorite items, regularly pairing shorts with puffer jackets, and has been similarly making the case for knitwear all year round. In the summer you can find him mixing it up with a cardigan and shorts and then in the winter you can find him utilizing the cardigan's warmth under a puffer jacket or a blazer.

But for all of his year-round experimentation, there's no denying that a cardigan is really in its element when temperatures start to drop.

Having a solid knitwear selection is more than advised for the coldest seasons when layering (finally) becomes possible again, and that includes a few cardi options. Mix one with a long coat, as we have in the lookbook for our latest fall collection, and you have a trademark preppy look, or take Tyler's advice and opt for a puffer jacket over the top — either way, you're looking at a cozy fit. Plus, unlike your average sweater, you have the option of unbuttoning when things get hot.

From Needles to Wales Bonner, from mohair to fleece, these are our favorite cardigans for fall.
