21 knitted cardigan co-ord sets for staying cosy in style

In September 2019, something quite momentous happened: Katie Holmes stepped out in that now-iconic matching cashmere bra top and cardigan set, thus kickstarting fashion’s unlikely love affair with the knitted co-ord.

Plentiful high street iterations of Katie’s look (her’s was from designer brand Khaite and cost $2,060) have been created since, from Zara’s three-piece bradigan and skirt combo to River Island’s sell-out lilac cable-knit set and Primark’s £20 knitwear co-ords.

The trend shows no signs of going anywhere for autumn/winter 2020 – and this time, there are more options to choose from than ever. With prices starting from just £9.99, there’s a knitted cardigan co-ord to suit everyone: from classic beige, camel and oatmeal tones to lilac and powdery blue; thin ribbed to chunky cable-knit; embellished to embroidered.

Stradivarius, Zara and ASOS all have lots of options to choose from, as do New Look, Mango and Urban Outfitters – some even have matching knitted shorts or trousers for a three-piece effect, too. And so we’ve scoured the high street for the best of the bradigans, cardibras, cardigan sets and knitted co-ords – whatever you want to call them, they’re here.
