Whether you've already dived into the vacuum bags under your bed to dig out your winter woollies, or you're waiting that little bit longer, autumn is well and truly here. And new-season inspiration is absolutely everywhere. If it isn't the slew of gorgeous new jackets at Mango, it's the knitwear offering at Sézane. And it's not even the latest styles that have captured our attention.
Because sometimes the best new-season pieces are the ones that aren't new at all, which is certainly the case at Sézane - and its (now cult) Achille and Gaspard cardigans. Having been around for the last couple of years, the cosy knits have made quite an impact. So much so, the humble cardigans have been bought a whooping 30,000 times, collectively.
So what's so special about them? The Gaspard (as worn by influencer Monikh Dale, below) is £95 and as soft as it is stylish. The fine-knit jumper is not only easy-to-wear across all seasons, it's also available in not one, not two but 17 different colours (17!). There's everything from classic white, black and grey to popping pink and cobalt blue.
The cardigan is a versatile separate to embrace with open arms – whether you're throwing it over a midi dress or wearing it with leather trousers, it'll never fail in the outfit department. This particular style (with mother-of-pearl buttons) has often been worn on its own as a top, or even back-to-front as a jumper.
Now, it's time to welcome the Achille. The chunkier, more classic cardigan of the two is £115 and the one that makes you want to get swaddled up in multiple layers. Influencer Jessie Bush has a whole host of colours that she wears with everything from shorts to jeans. With 10 different shades, picking a colour may be your most difficult decision this week.
