A cardigan sweater is easily defined as a sweater with buttons or a zipper in front. It is contrasted to a regular sweater because there could either be a closed or an open front. Never worn alone, a cardigan sweater always has a long sleeve, and is accompanied by another piece of clothing, which means that it is technically designed to be worn in colder seasons.
The versatility allows it to be in style and fashion regardless of season, and regardless of whether it is worn casually or formally.
There are many designs and variations in a cardigan sweater depending on the wearer’s preferences. Each of these unique design represents one kind of motif, or shall we say, “aura” that represents that specific style in a way that separates it from other styles.
