Be cardi-cool! How to wear this season's cardigan
The cardigan has been promoted to this season's hottest item. Whether you're looking for a cosy cover-up or the cult knitted co-ord, fashion editor Amber Jackson's top top picks to prove that the cardigan is back, but not as we once knew it.
What do you get when you cross a coat and a cardi? A coatigan! "You're getting a lot of cardigan for £30", says Amber, "and in this transitional time, it's a good layering piece."

The IT knit
For a cooler way to style your cardi, Amber suggests undoing the top buttons and pushing it back over your shoulders for an autumnal version of the 'jeans and a nice top' look.

Wearing your buttoned-up cardigan as a jumper with faux-leather or denim, and choosing a neon shade like this popping pink are two ways of cooling up the cardi, says Amber.

Cosy cable knit
Amber says cosy cardis don't need to be chunky, and wearing a longer-line version with a belt offers you all the warmth, with a streamlined silhouette. Don't be scared to double up on your knits as the weather gets cooler!
