For cool days in the office or simply lounging around, it’s easy to get cosy in Forcast’s selection of knit cardigans.
More lightweight than jumpers, but perfect to pair and layer over tops and dresses, cardigans are a varsity-style that can transition you through the seasons, and be mix and matched to create any look of your choosing.
From thick chunky patterns, heavyweight to light textures, you’ll be pulling out Forcast’s range of women’s cardigans again and again. Try a bold block-coloured slouchy cardigan over a slim-fitting pair of leggings and sneakers for a weekend-in look, or team a cropped cardigan with high waisted jeans and mules for a more modern twist to a classic wardrobe staple.
For a Nordic-inspired style, opt for long cardigans in neutral colours or chunky knitted jumpers in classic navy and whites.
For a day in the corporate office, Forcast also has a range of traditional button-up styles to open designs with waterfall lapels- ideal to layer over a basic white camisole. Opt for lighter fabrics and colours in the warmer months, or layer underneath your favourite winter coat.
Whether you love them for their form or function, or for their ability to transform any basic outfit, Forcast’s cardigans in Australia can certainly help you make your next defining style moment, in the office, out and about or at home.
Explore which trending styles you need in your workwear rotation the most:
Open-Front: Often featuring unique water-fall lapels or smooth, rounded collars, open-front cardigans never close with buttons, zippers, snaps or belts, allowing you to shop the blouse, camisole or knitted top underneath. With their flowiness and ability to elevate a daytime outfit to eveningwear, open-front cardigans can come in a variety of colours and striking prints. We personally recommend them in deep blues, beiges, blacks and forest greens.
Long Cardigans: Similar to open cardigans, but made with much longer hem lengths- to the point they reach down to your ankles, or just below the knee. They’re just like wearing a warm blanket! As a result, they make the perfect substitute for bulky winter coats. Long cardigans can be worn loosely, or feature large buttons or even a matching belt to fasten. When worn with skinny jeans and ankle boots, long cardigans can be very dressy, even though you can also wear them as casual wear.
Belted: If you’re not a fan of buttoned cardigans, a belted cardigan might be the more feminine alternative for you. Belted cardigans can be long or short, depending on the style. The benefit of this cosy knitwear is that it can flatter any body shape with the help of the waist-cinching belt. In addition, they look fantastic when paired with leggings, dress slacks, jeans and high boots.
Coatigan: The coat meets cardigan! This satisfyingly comfy knit is as exactly as it sounds, combining the best features of the classic formal coat and the cosiness of your favourite knit. When it comes to style, this effortlessly minimalistic outerwear can elevate any basic top and denim combo instantly. Drape yours over a pair of jeggings, a cowl neck jumper and ankle boots for a relaxed yet on-trend vibe.
Wrap cardigan: If you enjoy the elegance of a wrapped neckline, then a wrap cardigan is definitely a worthy investment for the cooler months. Styled exactly like a wrap top or a shawl, this feminine and cosy essential is fastened at the waist with two attached ribbon ties, and can be fitted or loose depending on the style you want to evoke. A must-have to wear with high-rise jeggings and calf-high boots.
