The humble cardigan has had a veritable glow-up in recent seasons. Hitting the runway and with regular outings on style-icons' backs, the days where 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.
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 in music videos, 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. Since the winter means your favorite cardi will most likely be obscured by a bulky jacket it makes sense.
Now that the temperatures are rising, we've got our eyes set on a few new pieces that can be the statement in your outfits rather than a mere layering option.
