From the comeback of the Y2K aesthetic to the rise of the cottagecore trend, fashion enthusiasts continue to dream up new ways to wear your usual wardrobe essentials, or at the very least, give old style habits a 2022 update—and we're not complaining! 

Case in point: The cardigan and sweater styling trick commonly associated with the quintessential preppy style. If you follow Manila's most stylish on Instagram, then you'll have spotted the comeback of this old-school way of sporting the garment. And in true Gen Z fashion, there's a slightly more modern way of wearing it: aside from tying your sweater or cardigan around your neck, you can also tie it around your torso diagonally for a more breezy look.

While a lot of people have reservations against joining in on the cottagecore trend (the picnic aesthetic is not for everyone!), this one is a little easier to take in. It's also a cool way to bring your sweaters and cardigans out for quick fit check even when it's not as cold or breezy outside as you'd hope for.
