Shown in floor length knits, cropped structured silhouettes, and layered with other pieces, the grey cardigan has gotten a makeover this season and is a fall wardrobe must have.

Pair with tailored pants for a day of business, or a slinky dress for a romantic night out. The new grey cardigan literally goes with everything. Instead of that old black overcoat, try pairing two cardigans together for a cozy, trendy alternative.
