Cardigans are a closet staple, but they also happen to be trending items in fashion right now. What's the update? Well, with an influx of '90s and early-aughts fashion over the past several seasons (tube tops being one of our favorites right now), the 2020 take is all about wearing cardigans as tops, whether it's thin and cropped à la a baby tee or a classic silhouette in a bright color or fun pattern.
There are also chunkier cardigans out there that are great for styling as tops, too. The fresh way to wear yours? With a few buttons secured at the top and several left open for a chic reveal of skin. Or as a midlayer between a lightweight top and a jacket for transitional and cool weather. The best thing about cardigans? They're perfect for lounging around the house in or for when you want an outfit that looks just-dressed enough but not overdone (we know you're in need of some great work-from-home outfits right now).
