cardigansA cardigan is a sweater with the front tied, buttoned or zipped. This item of women wear is often knitted as a single piece in a simple back-and-forth manner. It is the woven sweater with deep V-shaped cut without the collar, with low-placed buttons and large patch pockets. This women wear item was named after the General James Cardigan who cared of comfort and warmth for his soldiers, providing knitted sweaters from rough wool.

It happened in the mid-XIX, while cardigans came into fashion some time later, only in hundred years, in 40s of XX century. By the lapse of time cardigans became the item of fashionable wardrobe instead of just a warmer. The knit became finer, and the sizes - smaller. In 50s the cardigans were in vogue in Great Britain presenting elegant sweaters with small buttons. To the end of the century the cardigans get more popular to the extent that European women found it comfortable and fashionable to have cardigans made of wool, cotton and even silk. The cardigan aka sweater differs from the similar jacket in its small neckline, no collar and self-color. This women wear item has never been in vogue to the extent to play a key role, it remained practical, and thus, all previous cardigans were made in pastel and neutral shades. Currently the fashion sets widen margins accentuating the unique features of cardigans and playing around with versions. The current colors are more intensive and bright, the collar line goes up, the buttons are bigger and smaller, and there is no need to fasten the buttons now. The stylish belt or the strap is enough to look fashionable.

Designers are still fascinated with the concept of cardigans this season and the Fashion House collections present cardigans from fine wool, acryl, tender cashmere, as well as cardigans of loose knit. The trendiest model of cardigans is the ultra-long to knees model that can be also used as the coat.

The designers by Miu Miu come too close to the traditional cut of cardigans presenting the sweater in the similar color with deep V-shaped cut and rarely placed buttons at the waist line. And the conservative style may be softened by the thin contrast waist-belt.

Designers of other fashion houses go on introducing new ideas to the austere silhouette and traditional color of cardigans presenting the model to comply with the tendencies of the latest collections.

Donna Karan model of the cardigan has the front draped like the turtle-neck. The distinctive feature of Blumarine cardigans is the mint fur collar. Stella McCartney combines the cardigan with the dress and presents the original model with buttons on the waist and fluffy puffed sleeves. The adherence to bright colors and unique tailoring of Missoni House provoked the designers to create the cardigans with pulpy ornaments and buttons on the tail.

 Tomas Maier refuses from buttons and launches the model of cardigan close to home dress with the belt. Alexander McQueen also denies all buttons creating the real masterpiece from the customary sweater making the front of the cardigan in the elegant jabot and the flaps sharper.

Chloe confirms the feature of the cardigan of the Autumn-Winter Collection to be used as the winter coat. Breaking the stereotypes, the designers of the brand match the cardigan with the scarf closing the neck and low neck area while the previous models allowed the neck open. The other Chloe model is presented as the long cardigan with over-lapping upper front fastened with a single button on the band-collar.

We see that margins are less contrasting and the modern cardigan is the splendid match of the sweater and the dress, coat and the jacket, if it is partially made from bologna.

As for the color preferences, the designers propose to opt for either cardigan to contrast the main image or the main item of the attire to make the monochromic image. This case you'd better choose the solid color gamut.
