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.

I am a total cardigan girl, I seriously wear one to work like once a week.
That's cool, Ashley! So, you probably have a few year these already then…
Perfect outfit for mid-range weather. I love a fun cardigan especially with that sleeve length.
Exactly, Stacey! The sleeve length was a huge attraction to this particular cardigan style.
I have the same philosophy with the Jackie cardis…stock up when they are on sale..love them!
You know it, Tara! Thanks as always for hosting your link-up!
I have way too many cardis! The yellow looks beautiful on you!
Not a bad problem to have, Debbie 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
I actually think I have too many. Your look today just put a smile on my face. Love happy days like this thanks to you.
See now. I might need to come raid your closet when I'm in your area again 🙂
Great outfit! The bright yellow cardi surely adds a pop of colour. Also like how you've used a green bag and leopard print shoes. Simple and chic!
Thanks so much!
Love this outfit! Do you find that JCrew Factory fits similarly to J Crew? There are some great cardigans on final sale right now and I'm struggling with sizes…
Thanks, Jessie! That's been my experience. I wear the exact same size in the J.Crew Factory 'Clare' cardigan as I do in the J.Crew 'Jackie' cardigan. They fit exactly the same.
I have a cardigan addiction so I absolutely loved this post. Although I tend to wear a suit to work every day, I like cardigans for casual Fridays. They give an outfit some structure and still look professional. I recently ordered a yellow cardigan, very similar to yours, from Talbots. I like the pairing with the white and green. I'll have to give it a try. 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration.
