Classic Cardigans: Bill Cunningham Appreciates A Woman In Knit
June 22, 2009
In yesterday’s On the Street, venerable street-style photographer Bill Cunningham’s weekly slideshow for The New York Times, cardigan sweaters were the topic at hand. Or, as Bill would pronounce it, “cah-digan sweat-ahs.” It’s hard to say whether his posh old-fashioned accent or the cardigan sweater itself is more of a classic thing.
We love Bill’s pictures of stylish, cardigan-clad women on the streets of New York, and it’s inspired us to do a little shopping ourselves. Here are our top picks:
This L.A.M.B. cardigan is an awesome, slim-fitting wardrobe staple, plus it’s on sale ($150.50 from $215.)
You can’t go wrong with a lightweight, casual v-neck cardigan. This Gap sweater comes in nine colors, so in addition to fun purple, you can pick up a neutral black or sand ($44.50.)
A long yet light merino cardigan, like this one from J. Crew ($89.50) looks good over jeans or a skirt, and works for all seasons.
