An Ode to Cardigans

Cardigans, how I love thee. Ever since we first met in the JCrew discount section, while I was still a blossoming young teen wearing pajama pants to class, it has been a whirlwind romance. Cardigan are just so fun and versatile. They're like the friend who is up for absolutely anything.

With endless variety in terms of cut, length and color it really isn't an overstatement to say that there is a cardigan for every occasion. I know I make mine work overtime. Whether I'm going out, heading to class, or attempting to save money by not running my heat--cardigans have me covered (literally!). I'm going to share with you a few of my favorite cardi's from the interwebs :D

1. The Jackie

I have my fair share of Jackie cardigans. They're a classic for a reason and look adorable over dresses!
2. Drapey
The perfect cardigan for when you really wish you had skipped the bar last night. Loose fitting and universally flattering--it hides a multitude of sins.

3. Grandpa Cardigan

Don't let the name fool you. While they dress down easily, they can dress up too.

4. Embellished
Zooey Deschanel: Queen of Cardigans

Do you guys rock cardigans?


  1. I have such a love hate relationship with these things. I wore them by force throughout high school thanks to the ugliest school uniform ever and can't bring myself to wear a traditional once because of it. But, the drapey types are super cute and don't really look like a traditional cardigan so I love love love them.

  2. I have a long love of cardigans! They can be dressed up or down and I am always freezing, so I love the fact that they are an extra layer of warmth!

  3. I have just recently started getting into cardigans, but I am loving mine! It's a grey color and really goes with everything! :)
