Favorite Summer Cardigan

Disclaimer. I love cardigans. Anyway, Old Navy’s summer cardigan with its lightweight cotton, deep V-neckline, and three quarter sleeves is the perfect warm weather companion. These cardigans work fabulously at the office, substituting for those too-stiff-for-summer blazers, and also provide just enough coverage for those chilly summer nights.

Here are a couple looks created with my cardigan picks.

    That looks like the absolute perfect cardi for all occasions. Hope ON does 'em for fall … I need some brights in my collection!

    ooh! i've been looking for more office-cover-up cardigans… they seem to be so hard to find! thanks for the tip! that minor banding at the bottom with the mini pleats worries me a tiny bit but i'll have to go try them on 😀

    You're back! I love this green cardi! I have one in a similar color from J.Crew and I find that it is the perfect summer coverup for just bopping around or for the office! 🙂

    I love summer v-neck cardigans – you look great in both of yours.

    Great cardigans (Old Navy to the rescue once again!). Like these on summer nights instead of a hoodie. They look great belted on you.

    Wow! That apple green cardigan is STUNNING. I love how you can belt them for a completely different look.

    The first outfit is gorgeous! The green is so vibrant it looks great against your dark skin. I'm more of a green person than a purple…:)

    I just love the color of purple, and this is a great wardrobe to wear combined with black dress and skinny belt…
