My first pair of cardigan clips were purchased from a vendor at Viva Las Vegas in 2013. I saw them on a display mannequin and didn’t quite know what they were for exactly but knew I needed them!
I love adding them to outfits for a extra touch and they don’t even need to be on a cardigan- recently I’ve been attaching them to the collar of my blouse and it really gives the looks some extra pizzaz. Get creative with how you wear them and definitely search eBay and Etsy for one of a kind gems.
Whenever I wear them, I get questions about what they are called or where to find similar ones. I call mine ‘Cardigan Clips’ but I think they can also be called ‘Sweater Clips’ (which seems to get more results in search engines) or ‘Sweater Guards’.
If you are looking for vintage Cardigan Clips, Etsy and eBay are your best friends as well as any local vintage shops. There are also a number of great places to find reproduction styles too so I’ve put together a collection of some of my favourites.
