9 of the best embroidered cardigans to help you channel the pretty knitwear trend

Cosy and comfortable are undoubtedly the style notes we’ve all taken this year – but that doesn’t mean you can’t still add a little personality to your look while you’re at it. And we’d wager that this is why the trend for floral embroidered cardigans has really taken off in the last 12 months.

Whether they’re worn solo or as part of the season’s other consuming trend – the Insta-famous knitted co-ord – embroidered cardigans hit that sweet spot between chic and snug, working just as well over structure denim as they do with the elasticated waistband of our beloved WFH joggers (or even tucked into a trusty skirt a la Holly Willoughby, if you’re so inclined).

It’s not just the warm and toasty factor at play here, though; at a time when the day-to-day routine can be difficult and unpredictable (i.e., the whole of 2020), choosing joyful prints and patterns is a great little way to lift your mood – and whether you love the dainty detail of a ditsy print or a bolder statement look, the high street has got something in stock for you.

While in England we can’t yet visit the shops to browse in person (sadly ruling out the plethora of great options at branches of Primark, which are worth looking out for when they reopen), we’ve tracked down the best embroidered cardigans that are still available online, with something for every price point. Invest in your favourite one, and the rest of your winter just got a little prettier.
