Here are my favorite French-girl style cardigans to wear this fall/winter. With winter just around the corner, my current wish lists are made up of cozy knitwear, cashmere sweaters, and of course, knit cardigans. Basically, anything that will allow me to stay warm whilst not sacrificing on style.
If you love French-girl style, today, I wanted to dive a little more into French-style cardigans and knitwear. Cardigans have been experiencing a comeback over the past few years, challenging the classic crew-neck knitwear, and are now considered as a French fashion wardrobe essential for fall and winter. Indeed, cardigans offer endless styling possibilities and serve as a chic and practical layering piece. French girls love to wear them over a basic white tee or a silky camisole and under a wool-blazer. And French women usually combine their favorite cardigans with a pair of high waist jeans, a skirt, or over a dress and with a pair of ankle boots. You’ll never look so chic with this très French outfit.
Whether you prefer luxury cashmere or cozy wool, cardigans are perfect to upgrade your fall/winter wardrobe to a whole new level of French chicness. When choosing the perfect cardigan, opt for a high-quality fabric that will last for more than one season like merino wool, cashmere, angora, or mohair wool. In terms of colors, French women prefer neutral tones and classic shades such as beiges, grey, navy blue, dark green, or burgundy. These colors will go with all your outfits and won’t feel constricted to a certain season.
