These oversized cardigan sweaters are perfect for keeping cozy whether you’re relaxing at home or running errands.
Cardigans are going to be big for fall and winter 2020, and we have Taylor Swift to thank for that. I’m not saying Taylor Swift invented the cardigan, but the popularity of her recent song “Cardigan” definitely has something to do with it. In the accompanying music video, Taylor plays piano in front of a crackling fireplace, spending time in a cottage that’s reminiscent of the ones in fairytales. “And when I felt like I was an old cardigan / under someone’s bed / you put me on and said I was your favorite,” she sings.
Taylor ends the music video by slipping on a star-studded knit cardigan that’s so aesthetically pleasing, it immediately prompted diehard Swifties like myself to look online for similarly cozy cardigans. Turns out, you can buy the exact cardigan from “Cardigan”—complete with silver stars, black detailing, and a chunky cable knit fabric—on the Taylor Swift Store. The one drawback is that it has a conspicuous logo advertising the album, causing some to look elsewhere in their pursuit of Folklore-inspired knitwear.
That’s why I’m rounding up the comfiest cardigans that you don’t have to be a Taylor Swift fan to enjoy. These oversized sweaters are perfect for lounging around at home, whether you’re curling up with a good book or catching up with some friends over Zoom. Some are cropped, some have pockets, and all are off the tops of the charts when it comes to coziness. Below, find the best oversized cardigan sweaters for all your fall and winter festivities.
