Crewneck Cardigan for Layering
Do you love layering? Spring is ideal for lightweight layers, and this crewneck cardigan from J.C. Penney fits the bill at only $14.99. It comes in seven different colors in sizes small through x-large. We recommend Modern Blue because this spring is all about pairing bright, bold colors with light pastels.
Open-Knit Cardigan for a Pulled-Together Work Look
Look airy and elegant in this open-knit cardigan by Style&co. at Macy’s for only $25.99. All three colors—Deep Black, Truffle and Vintage Cream—look great with jeans or dress pants. The fabric is sheer and lightweight, so you’ll be able to wear it year round. This cardigan is amply sized, so if you’re between sizes, consider purchasing a size down.
Plus-size Crew Cardigan for Date Night
This crew cardigan from Torrid is on clearance for $35.47, so grab it while you can. This purple color is similar to orchid, an up-and-coming color for spring. The cardigan has a button-down front and a short silhouette to show off those gorgeous curves. It’s a little roomy, so order a size down if you’re between sizes.
Reverse Ribbed Cardigan for Comfort and Warmth
Stay warm and cozy in this reverse ribbed cardigan from American Eagle. At $29.99, this sweater will get snatched up quickly. Unlike most ribbed sweaters, this cardigan is ribbed horizontally to give it a softer look. We particularly love the coral color for spring—it’ll add a touch of sweetness and romance to your wardrobe.
The great thing about a cardigan is that it can be dressed up or down. Pair it with a flowing shirt underneath for a casual look or with a smart blouse for a work look. The cardigan is more versatile than you think, so fill out your wardrobe by grabbing these bargains now.
