What do you wear when it’s too warm for a coat and too breezy for a simple sweater? Or when it’s cold enough for a coat in the morning but the temp is is in the 60’s by noon time? A cozy cardigan in a textured fiber may be your best friend until the first hard frost. If you are looking for one of those “in-between” pieces that will keep you toasty outside in the fall and then transition to the colder temps of the winter, check out some of these mid weight textured sweaters. Old Navy has a great selection of cardigans at fabulous prices. The Fair Isle tie-belt cardigan is so chic and reasonably priced that I want one in every color. (And it’s featured in the current issue of Lucky Magazine!). I love the cable knit cardigan, also from Old Navy, and wouldn’t mid committing $44.50 to the military chic trend. The olive green color is perfect for this fall, but won’t be out dated next year.
If you prefer something with a little more length, check out the selection at Piperlime.com. I really like the Kensie Tweeded Knit Cardigan ($88)
and the Jacquard Cardigan by Juicy Couture ($258)
If you live in a warmer climate, you can get the same look in lighter weight fabrics. These pieces transition well from Fall to Winter and even into early Spring, so don’t be afraid to invest in a piece that will keep you warm 6 months of the year.
