Singer Taylor Swift even sings about it in one of her songs called “Cardigan” — and fashion fans can also sing the praises of the popular item of clothing. In German, cardigan means a cardigan and it is probably in almost every wardrobe. The knitted jacket is versatile, not only in terms of color, shape and material, but also in terms of different seasons. In summer, a cardigan can keep you warm on warm summer nights and in autumn it completes the popular layered look. Now you might think that a cardigan is old hat, but that’s when the cardigan surprises and comes with new trends for 2023. You can find inspiration here.

Cropped cardigans feature a shortened hem. This gives the classic cardigan something modern. The short cardigan is ideal for combining with high-waisted jeans or skirts. Add a lingerie top and you’ve got a casual look. By the way, you can wear cropped cardigans both open and buttoned up.

Oversized cardigans won’t be part of the cardigan trends until 2023. The loose and loose version of the jacket is comfortable and can be worn perfectly over other layers. You can therefore wear oversized cardigans in winter if you want the style to be pleasantly warm.

Speaking of buttoned up, puff sleeve cardigans are ideal for wearing closed. This shows off the beautiful, wide sleeves of the cardigan and flatters the shoulders. Puff sleeves or balloon sleeves are sleeves on garments that are wide and voluminous. Because the sleeves are already expansive, it’s best to combine them with slim-fitting trousers or skirts. Dresses are also possible.

As casual as the width of the oversize cardigan, cardigans with a belt look just as elegant. Thanks to a belt, you can tie the cardigan tighter at the waist and easily create a beautiful waist. Cardigans with a belt are available in both long and short versions – as a cropped version.

As winter approaches, the world usually seems a little more colorless. No wonder, since all the trees lose their leaves and rain and snow characterize the weather. Fashion counteracts this dreariness: colorful cardigans with stripes and applications. Beautiful purple tones like lavender are popular. It doesn’t matter which color you ultimately prefer, as long as it’s colorful.
