Editor's Notes

April 30, 2020:

Cardigans are a great option that almost every person should have in their closet, and there are a variety of designs available that work well with almost any season. We've listed a range of styles that will most likely match your specifications. Some of our selections have buttons, and no matter how well they're sewn on, things are prone to breaking or falling off over time. We recommend purchasing a sewing kit and a sewing machine in case you need to repair or alter your cardigan.

The Tommy Hilfiger Cardigan and Amazon Essentials Cardigan are great choices for those who have a more reserved style. The former has a preppy design and is a lovely option for those with physical limitations because of its magnetic front closures that help it appear as a traditional cardigan. The latter is a simple, sleek option that is available in several colors.

For those who like loud patterns, the SweatyRocks Cardigan is most likely the option for you. It's available in a large range of fun designs that work well during the summer because of its lightweight material. However, it is a bit see-through, so we recommend wearing it over your bathing suit if you enjoy being covered while you're lounging on the shore or by the pool. The Tickled Teal Cardigan is a great option if you enjoy detailed trim and flowy designs. This selection will look nice with almost any clothing items you wear with it.

Be sure to read the washing instructions on your cardigan as some are made with cashmere, which is a high-quality fiber that can shrink if put in the dryer. If cared for incorrectly, it can ruin the integrity of the piece. Many of these selections are made with certain chemicals like textile dyes, which some people may be sensitive or allergic to. Wash your garment before wearing it to help prevent and minimize irritation.
