History Of The Garment
t was the great Coco Chanel who helped bring the cardigan to the masses, and it was women who made them cool. The '40s and '50s, however, saw a distinct slimming of the cardigan, with Hollywood starlets like Jayne Mansfield, Jane Russell and Lana Turner coined the 'sweater girls' of the time, each adopting the fashion of wearing tight, figure-fitting jumpers.
