When I busted out my striped cardigan in the recent Conversation Pieces post it reminded me of the utility of a great neutral patterned cardigan.  It can be a workhorse in your wardrobe, especially now that fall weather allows for some layering!  I love my striped cardigan because I can throw it on over any solid tee or tank of any color and instantly feel a little more pulled together.  I also like that because they're neutral they add pattern and interest without being too in-your-face.

Here are some options, mostly from Target, ModCloth, JCPenney, Old Navy, and J.Crew Factory.


Option #1 & Option #2 - Mandy commented asking about my striped cardigan, but it is a couple years old (Target) and not available anymore.  However, I found this lookalike at ModCloth (option #1).  There's only two left, and in size small, so I included option #2 which is available in LG / XL and is black/white.  (Mine is navy/cream.)

Option #3 - Some people may think animal print is a little loud, but there's something about black and white animal print in a cardigan that is very classy to me.  I imagine it with a black pencil skirt and a simple maroon or forrest green tank underneath.  Love it!

Option #4 - Very cute polka dot cardigan!  I think it speaks for itself.  :)

Option #5 - Also available in spearmint/minty green, which is also totally cute.  

Option #6 - Comes in a darker color too, and the polka dots are actually made of sequins for some extra sparkle!  That helps take it from day to night.

Option #7 - These dots are also a little sparkly, and there are some other patterns and neutral colors with shimmery embellishments.

Option #8 - Comes in a bunch of colors shown above and another neutral striped color.

Option #9 - I think this cardigan is so cute!  I don't think it really suits my style or personality, but nonetheless I find it adorable!   


And in case you're looking for solid colored cardigans, here are some from Target (~$20) and J.Crew Factory (~$30) that each come in 10+ colors.

  9. I love #'s 1, 6, 8, & 9. I am definitely looking for a few plain, neutral cardigans, but with more to them like this one: http://pinterest.com/pin/create/bookmarklet/?media=http%3A%2F%2Ffarm3.staticflickr.com%2F2851%2F9941926635_18ae9121e2_z.jpg&url=http%3A%2F%2Ffranish.blogspot.com%2F&description=IMG_5410%20by%20Franishh%2C%20via%20Flickr

  10. I've stocked up on cardigans, too. 2 striped & the rest solid. I could be tempted by a good polka dotted one, though.

  11. I desperately need some new cardigans, unless holes are in style this year. :) Sadly, the long/oversized cardigans that I see everywhere in the stores right now don't work well with my wardrobe, which is heavy on dresses and full skirts, so I'm not having much luck!

  12. Really depends on the neckline you prefer! I find that ones that button all the way up are more versatile for me, because you can leave the top buttons open for a faux-v-shape or button it all the way up if you're cold or for a pullover sweater look with a collar poking out.
