This poppy, fun stripey number is the type of piece that instantly makes any outfit cool.
There are so many good cardigans at Vince, but I’m only showing you a couple of them here cause they’re not especially cheap. I particularly like this one because the proportions are right on the money, and so is the mustardy-brown hue. Here’s a similar and cheaper version.
And here’s another brown sweater (suddenly I guess I like brown after all) that looks satisfyingly chunky.
This nicely drapey sweater definitely looks like it could have come from Maria Cornejo.
This looks like a cool thrift store score, but with a modern cut.
An ever-so-slightly oversized cashmere boyfriend sweater that feels very casual luxe to me.
A zipper cardigan is so sportif.
Just a good, well-priced everyday sweater with appealing patch pockets.
This chunky plaid specimen would look great with a thin hoodie layered under it.
I love how dark the leopard print is here.
OK, this capelet might be stretching the category a bit, but it’s a sweater and it’s open in the front so I’m allowing it. Plus it’s got that adorable hood.
A really sophisticated-looking wrap cardi for wearing with anything from pencil skirts to jeans.
Long cardigans are a really big trend right now, but it’s a trend I do not entirely endorse—I think they can look bulky and as though you’re wearing a blanket. I do think this one is really nicely cut, though, which makes all the difference.
Here’s a good cropped one for pairing with dresses.
And finally, I had to include this Uniqlo crewneck cardigan, because it’s just under $40, comes in a number of neutral-ish colors, and is a fantastic layering piece.
