I wore a long-sleeve shirt outside for the first time last weekend and it was glorious. This wonderful occasion reminded me that I need to add a few cozy cardigans to my wardrobe before autumn is in full swing. The following 5 are high on my must-buy list.
Cardigans, in general, are cozy as heck. But cardigans with hoods up the cozy factor a notch. This cardigan features a hood and roomy hip pockets. The silhouette is oversized and the hems have a raw look. It’s a perfect piece for wearing on somewhat cool days when you just have to wear your favorite band t-shirt… Damn the clouds and wind. Priced at $98.
This cape-like poncho cardigan is made of warm, Merino wool. It has an open front and a beautiful design pattern throughout. Its fringe is delightfully rustic, but the piece’s overall look is classic. Pair with bell bottoms and platforms to make a memorable look. Priced at $348.
There are days where I just want to curl up in a blanket and get cozy. This cardigan is like a blanket, but much more fashionable. It’s made of alpaca wool and has two, roomy side pockets. It also features an open front. Wear with jeans, trousers—whatever. Just make sure you let this cozy piece be the feature of your outfit. Priced at $485.
This cardigan features alpaca, too. This piece is long—it’s perfect for wearing with short skirts, or peasant dresses and knee-high boots. It also has a stretchy fit, features slouchy side pockets and a hook closure. This color is insanely vibrant, too. It will look wonderful against an autumn leaf backdrop. Priced at $198.
Take your look retro with this vintage-inspired cardigan. The shag will keep you warm and looking fashionable. It has hidden hook closures, too. Priced at $198.
