    I always use cardigans like this! I think it’s a really cool way to be chic without forgetting to be warm and comfy

    I like Franca Sozzani style. The light periwinkle blouse and the dark green skirt : fantastic ! As for the shoulder cardigan, I’ve often worn it that way especially in movie theaters.
    What I’m going to try is the necklace over the blouse, very chic.

    Franca’s style is effortless, that’s why it’s so relevant!

    Over the shoulder cardigans; not just for grandma anymore ! These looks are lovely. The woman in the green skirt and purple blouse is so stylish and has such a warm smile. The braid in the second photo is very chic. The cardigans elevate the denim outfits in the bottom rows. Looking at these brightened my evening.

      I completely agree with you Tonia! Not only for grandmas! They are looking good. So chic! I love them.

    I really do love the shoulder cardigan. It adds a touch of elegance as well as preppiness to an outfit. I also love when jackets are worn this way — and it keeps you surprisingly warm!

    Shoulder cardis are very elegant and feminine. They add an air of refinement and a sense of delicacy. Pretty, pretty, pretty!

    Shoulder cardigans reflect such a classic and chic style. Which one’s your favorite?

    Oh, this trend reminds me of my childhood. the nuns in my school would wear their grey cardigans over their habits. Since then, it’s a bit like Pavlov… everytime I see someone with a cardigan over their shoulders, I stop biting my nails, I behave and I stop running in the hallways ;-)

    Nice new way to feature your beautiful pictures. Makes me want some new cardigans, as well as stripes, and, and, and. Good editorial decision to alter a bit the way of showing us your photos.

    Any picture of Garance in the second serie? ;) Seems like she has the ultimate knowledge of how to wear this, what to my eyes seems like, total impracticality :))

  39. Carol Markel

    October 25, 2012 at 7:23 am

    But Garance says it’s not very practical — just for the “look” for fashion week.

    It is really a classy style which comes never out of fashion. I think.

    I grew up all of my life seeing my mother and grandmother wearing their cardigans and blazers on their shoulders…I guess because it is a very European thing and everyone did it. I also remember how I “would never” wear it like that because it seemed to me that it was a thing “old ladies did”. As I grew older, I began to appreciate how effortlessly chic it looked, and how practical it could be, so I began to wear them like that too. I now find it funny that it is perceived as “a trend”!

    Thank you for posting such great examples!

    Love the bottom right photo – great outfit and bag and love the dark red lipstick and highlighted ends of her hair. Chic!

    I love seeing it on all different ages! I’m a huge fan of cardigans, and I think I’m now inspired to wear it like this. How classic!

    Fabulous classic style. Now to get to my hand weights for shoulder exercises so I can keep the cardigan from slipping off!

    Really good idea!! I’ll save this on my pc!

    Yes, but how do you keep it on? I think mine would slide right off onto the dirty street.

    They always fall off when I try to wear them like this. Adding the chain looks a bit too old lady/vintage for my tastes. I wish I could make it work…

    I love this look too, but it destroys my sangfroid constantly thinking it’s about to slip off….maybe that’s why we associate it with older, more experienced women from our pasts.
    As children of the seventies we learned to cast off these so-called pretensions, but that meant we also missed the lesson about discipline creating calm.

    I love cardigans, but wearing them over the shoulders is something that I don’t get.

    It’s the sort of Seinfeld like parody when it’s too cold to put the cardigan over your arm, but not cold enough to wear it like it should?…

    Gorgeous pictures, of course ;)

    love that dark red/purple lipstick. also shoulder cardigans look so elegant. It makes them looking so good though they look a little older.
