12 Cozy Cardigans That Are Anything But Basic

After four months of a seemingly constant wintry mix, it feels like winter should be long gone by now. But, according to the forecast at R29 HQ, the windchill isn’t going anywhere. Lovely.
Still, this gives us another chance to step up our layering game. And, while there’s no winter wardrobe staple with a higher instant-outfit index than the cardigan, sometimes, a basic grandpa style feels a bit tired. That’s why we rounded up 12 charming cardgians — from a leopard-print pick to a mellow, geometric style — that are anything but run-of-the-mill.
Throw one over a dress for some added warmth or under a moto jacket to ease up on the edge. The best part? Most of these cardis will look just at home over a whisper-thin tank in the spring as they do right now, and that's what we call a win-win.
