Why is everyone talking about cardigans? Chic oversized cardigans have been spotted on instagram's cool girls, but thanks to Taylor Swift, the cardigan is having a moment. Swift surprised her fans last night by dropping her eighth studio album, folklore. Released less than a year after her seventh album, Lover, the album was created during quarantine, and takes a much different approach. It’s acoustic and dreamy, transporting you to the beautiful forest on the album’s cover. How can you not want to snuggle up in a cozy cardigan and walk through the woods (while listening to the song "cardigan," of course)? It might be the middle of the summer, but take this excuse to shop cool cardigans for when the cool weather comes.

Matching sets have been the craze of the streetwear and more general fashion worlds for a few years, so it’s kind of surprising sweater sets haven’t gotten their moment. It’s an instant outfit, perfect for summer nights or cool but sunny fall days.
