With top catwalk designers hailing the return of the cardi this season, grandmothers everywhere are celebrating. But you can get in on the trend, too, with a piece from this collection of women’s cardigans that’s defined by comfort and class.

Casual cool with women’s cardigans

For days when you’d rather remain wrapped in a duvet, a chunky woollen cardigan is a good compromise. Shawl-neck styles with big front pockets and oversized sleeves add to the snuggle factor. For a full body-wraparound design, look for long waterfall cardigans for women with waist ties for extra intimacy. Pick from the palette of neutral greys and earth tones that defines this collection to suit those calm weekends at home. For casual outwear, tap into the 90s androgynous trend with a slouchy boyfriend cardigan teamed with a T-shirt, torn-up jeans and military boots. Plain, zip-up cardigans offer that in-vogue utilitarian look that's perfectly matched with baby blue jeans and white trainers. Shaggy materials work with a girly or tough vibe, while open knits have a rustic texture.

Look the part at the office with women’s cardigans

A cardi can be worn under or as a slightly less formal replacement for a suit jacket. For an office-appropriate look try a clean-cut women’s cardigan with a single button at the neck, accompanied by a crisp white blouse. Close-knit cashmere cardigans for women are prim and preppy - perfect with some smart cotton trousers. For a confident lady-on-a-mission look, go for a patterned statement cardigan or a luxe poncho style as the centrepiece of your outfit. Floppy lapels offer an artful take on the traditional blazer - keep an eye out for pleated styles and cable or waffle knits for extra textural flourishes.
