The slouchy, “grandpa”-style cardigan is everywhere, but there’s no question about it—Gramps wouldn’t know what to do with this asymmetrical cardie from Alexander Wang. The cropped, fall-weather knit features one regular arm and one draped one—wear it hanging loose or wrapped across the neck for old-world glamour. With, of course, a downtown edge.

We’ve loved animal prints for a long time, so we were pretty delighted when we ran across a whole host of spots in Tommy Ton’s streetwear trend report.
