The humble cardigan has had a veritable glow-up in recent seasons. Hitting the runway under the likes of Fendi, Gucci, and more, and with regular outings on style-icons' backs, it's no longer reserved for your granddad. From Tyler, the Creator to Pharrell, the cardigan's rightful place as a must-have wardrobe element for any modern rotation has been cemented.

The problem was that until now it's been too warm to welcome the cardi. Now that the temperatures are dropping, we've got our eyes set on a few new pieces for the season. From Needles to Dries Van Noten, from mohair to fleece, there are cardigans every which way we look and we're basking in it.
