Cardigans are such wardrobe essentials. They’re versatile and can be transeasonal (when chosen in the right weight). Cardigans are also perfect for adding a pop of color to any outfit. In today’s look, a yellow cardigan adds interest to the casual combination of skinny jeans and an antique white blouse.
I’ve been stocking up on J.Crew’s Jackie cardigan, purchasing colors I like when marked down. The cardigan retails for $65, but during sales, the price drops to $39.99 and under. The Jackie cardigan comes in an assortment of colors and a lightweight cotton blend, which makes it suitable for all seasons. I’m especially fond of the cardigan’s bracelet sleeves, longer than 3/4 length sleeves, and just the right length to showcase an arm party. J.Crew Factory stores offer a comparable cardigan at a much lower price called Clare.
