Olivia Wilde is no stranger to the spotlight. Between red-carpet appearances (opens in new tab) and film debuts (opens in new tab) the actress is often seen sporting some seriously glamorous looks. But what does she wear when she’s off-duty, we hear you ask? Apparently, Wilde’s casual attire is not too dissimilar to the rest of us.
Over the weekend, Wilde was spotted out and about in Los Angeles attending a sports game with her children. For the occasion, the actress opted for a pared-back look which included pair of Levi’s jeans (opens in new tab), a casual, cropped white t-shirt and a biscuity brown cardigan from Spanish high-street retailer, Mango.
The cardigan in question still happens to be in stock and is actually currently on sale, which is quite a rarity for a celebrity-endorsed, high-street item. Retailing currently for £45.99, the cardigan is made from a wool blend fabric and features two patch pockets on the front, as well as a textured knit stripe across the middle.
While historically, cardigans have not been seen as the most fashion-forward wardrobe essential, they have benefitted from somewhat of a revival in recent years. Ever since Katie Holmes (opens in new tab) was spotted in that famed Khaite bradigan (opens in new tab) the item has regained its It-status, becoming one of the coolest casual items in our wardrobes.
With spring on the horizon, there’s no better time to invest in a casual cardigan, as the outfit formula opportunities are endless. Soon we’ll be swapping out our winter coats in favour of lighter outwear and our cardigans will do just the trick. Yet, while we wait for the warmer weather, the wardrobe staple (opens in new tab) will look just as chic paired underneath a trench coat (opens in new tab) or cropped jacket (opens in new tab).
As Olivia proved, even with the most simple of styling the staple can still look incredibly chic. Keep scrolling to shop Olivia’s exact cardigan, as well as a few others below.
