Kawaii hoodies and sweaters are easy to find, but cardigans are a little more tricky. They’re my favourite way to layer up all year round so here’s some cute cardigans I would love to add to my winter wardrobe. Many of these are quite expensive as they are made to order and/or the design is knitted in, rather than printed on top. Follow the shop on social media for offers or add them to your gifting wish list. All shops ship worldwide.
