I’ve said it in the past but if you missed it, I can’t deny that my style is always slightly influenced by Taylor Swift’s albums. Last year, I wore a lot of tie dye and bright colours during the Lover era, and now that we have entered the time of folklore, I am ready to replace the tie dye and frozen cocktails for cosy knits and pumpkin spiced lattes.
If you’re not a Taylor Swift fan then none of this will make a lot of sense to you- basically Taylor Swift’s new album gives off rainy day, autumnal vibes. In particular, her single ‘Cardigan’ has influenced a resurgence in this piece of clothing which you will definitely be finding in every shop over the next few months.
I have always loved a cosy knitted cardigan, especially in the depths of autumn, but shops are currently selling different styles in endless colours to match the changing seasons and I’m kind of happy about it.
I got my yellow cardigan in the Zara kids sale a few weeks ago and it will most likely be the first of many. I love the lemon colour to tie in an element of summer to a traditional autumnal piece of clothing, making it the perfect transition piece.
As I am still on the search for another cardigan to add to my collection, I thought I would share some of my current high street favourites. Hopefully it will inspire you to do all of these things in this order:
1) buy a cardigan,
2) make a cup of tea/coffee/hot chocolate
3)sit in a cosy spot by a window and listen to the folklore album wrapped in your knit.
I promise you won’t regret any of it.
I hope you find one that you like!
