Back then, nearly everything was oversized and slouchy, with Snuffleupagus-ish silhouettes ready to cloak us into obscurity.

But just when we were preparing to file pin tops under fashion trends best left to t

If you were wondering whether or not cardigan sweaters are still "in" this season, fear not. The cozy button-down/sweater hybrid item has not stopped trending since THAT Harry Styles moment last summer. In fact, expect to see all sorts of takes on this particular sweater style in the months ahead because it's back and bigger than ever (and in some cases we mean that very literally).
