Rachel Bilson seems to live in her Cardigan by Lynne Hiriak Gigi Cardigan. She’s worn it with jeans, a khaki mini and tights, and with a black lacey 3.1 Phillip Lim romper.
Isla Fisher, Selma Blair and quite a few other celebs are super fans of this Brooklyn-based designer’s versatile, chic and adorb sweaters. Heck, they’ve even been spotted on Gossip Girl!
Perhaps the reason why everyone loves Lynne’s sweaters is that they’re made with a lot of love. “My first sentimental relationship with a CARDIGAN began when I was in Catholic high school. I wore the same classic crewneck CARDIGAN in navy or yellow almost every single day.”
Lynne grew up, went to school and designed knitwear for top designers like Michael Kors and Derek Lam. Finally, she heeded the call and began to design gorgeous cardigans under her own label CARDIGAN by Lynne Hiriak. The pretty things popped up in Lucky, In Style, Matchbook, The New York Times, A Cup of Jo, The Hollywood Reporter…oh, the list goes on and on! People just can’t get enough of a fun, sexy and comfy sweater!
Lynne herself actually owns around 200 cardigans. “My evolving personal collection of CARDIGANS confirms that no matter how many of them I have, I can always find a justification and need to have more. It’s so much fun adding new ones that serve different purposes to the one’s already in my closet. Believe it or not, I just added my first black CARDIGAN to my personal collection.”
They really can be worn with anything and taken anywhere. Just look at how the celebs have styled them. Cardigans have tons of options. You can wear them button up as a crewneck sweater with jeans, over a dress or with shorts. Undo a few buttons and turn it into a sexy vee neck! Wear them un-buttoned over a complimentary or contrast colored top.
Cardigans are the one item of clothing that can be worn 365 days a year. Grab one of Lynne Hiriak’s NOW at BettyConfidential Shop’s exclusive flash sale!
