No fashion item transcends the boundaries of style like a cardigan. It helps trendsetters and traditionalists reach across the aisle and shake hands while it makes snuggle bugs happy to help keep frost at bay. For both boys and girls, the cardigan is as essential piece of the nerdy kid wardrobe.

For those of you who think cardigans are just for girls, don’t forget that the manliest of secret agents probably has a whole closet full of them.

 Growing Up With Cardis: A Sweater for Every Kid

The only thing cuter than a baby is a baby dressed up in miniature versions of clothes normally reserved for older kids. Take this sweater from the PolishedPebbles13 Etsy store, for instance. The lime green chevron tie gives a modern, cheeky twist to the classic navy cardigan. ColbyAve Etsy shop also has a great yellow striped cardigan onesie.

Does this one look familiar? This cardi comes as part of a Hermoine Granger costume set, but there’s no reason it couldn’t be worn as a subtle everyday nod to everyone’s favorite school of witchcraft and wizardry.

And remember, just because it’s a button down sweater it doesn’t mean you can’t take a walk on the wild side. Grab an animal print like this cheetah cardigan.
