Let’s face it, one of the best things about winter is the opportunity to cozy up in an oversize, nubby cardigan. And while for years we’ve seen the rise of the slouchy grandpa-style cardigan from brands including The Elder Statesman , Pringle of Scotland , and countless others, pop star
Justin Bieber showed how to rework the sartorial staple for the guy—or girl on the go.
Bieber’s fresh approach comes down to a variation on silhouettes and contrasts in colors. Working with stylist Karla Welch, Bieber opted for an open, shawl-collar style that at first might say Mister Rogers, but when paired with Fear of God distressed jeans, Vans slip-ons, and a cozy James Perse hat, it goes from the neighborhood to natty. And like his latest album’s name, this is a look with Purpose.
