We fully blame Taylor Swift for this one

Best cardigans high-street

Ever since Taylor Swift saved 2020 for us all with her surprise album Folklore, we have been absolutely, definitely, categorically, vehemently obsessed with cardigans.

For those who have yet to listen (erm, sorry?) T-Swizzle compared herself to an old cardi in a song (the aptly named Cardigan) and we've been sobbing ever since.

The ol' cardi has come a long way since being a garment just your grandma wears and is now an elevated loungewear staple that you can even wear out out.

Get knitwear that does both, hun.

From bang-on-trend wrap styles to belted midis, here are the very best offerings from the high-street.

Meanwhile, we've all been obsessed with the chunky cardi Taylor wears in the music video for Cardigan.

The singer sent a select few of her celebrity pals the very cardigan she wore and it's naturally become 2020's most coveted item.

Queer Eye's Jonathan Van Ness was one of the lucky few and looks bloody chuffed to be wearing the T-Swift endorsed knitwear.

Too cute.
