Hola Gorgeous friends,
No capsule closet would be complete without a cardigan. This garment is named after James Brudenell, 7th Eat of Cardigan, a British Army Major General who lead the Charge of the Light Brigade during the Crimean War. The word “cardigan” is a variation from the Welsh Ceredigion. Legend has it that fame achieved by Lord Cardigan let to its ascent to popularity.
The modern day Cardigan owes quite a significant credit to Coco Chanel who detested the manner in which tight-necked sweaters ruined hair when pulled on that she opted to wear the Cardigan.
Modern day Cardigans come in a plethora of styles, colors and patterns. Some are made from luxurious cashmere. They can be machine or hand knitted. Generally worn during the cooler months they can be dressed up or for leisure time dressing.
As these photo’s clearly illustrate even the British Royal Family are often seen with a cardigan on. Famous feminine faces such as Reese Witherspoon, Zoe Saldanha and Amal Clooney often wear them. Even Justin Bieber wears them so there is no doubt just how popular a cardigan is. PS – My favorite is Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding cardigan – so stylish.
