designed by lynne hiriak, CARDIGAN has taken the fashion scene by storm this season. her signature, not surprisingly, is ultra-cozy knitwear, including super-thick wool sweaters, and gorgeous cardigans.
i’m determined to add at least one piece from her collection to my wardrobe this season, as i have no doubt her prices will double by this time next year. it’s a tough call…and i could use some input from my dear readers.
there’s this gorgeous 3/4 sleeve open cardigan ($195) that i positively adore for its draping. it also comes in a stunning royal blue and a classic black, but i think the heather grey really shows off the silhouette, which is special enough to deserve center stage.
i happened upon this striped boatneck sweater ($245) in a local boutique, and it was love at first sight. once again, it’s the detail of the silhouette that makes this special. i love the wide boatneck that drapes perfectly over your shoulders, making this actually quite sexy for a baggy wool sweater. it’s perfect to throw on over jeans for a dose of effortless style on even the most frigid day. you can also pick this up in white with royal blue stripes, or in a lovely sweater dress/tunic style.
for something a little more uptown, i almost can’t believe i’m so in love with this cardigan with the built-in scarf detail ($250). button up and tie it in a bow, or leave it open and drape the scarf casually around your neck – either way, you’re roasty toasty warm, and right on trend this fall.
hard call, don’t you agree? keep your eye out for more greats from this up-and-comer but, in the meantime, which of her current pieces is your fave?
