Shopping Help: Cardigans (That Aren't Super Thin)

Tis the season for cozy cardigans!  Don't you just love being wrapped up in a cozy sweater cardigan?  I've had this one for maybe 3 years(?) and it continues to be my go-to layering piece each season.  That trend won't stop either since cardigans are a nursing mom's best layering friend.  (As opposed to a pullover...)  

I've rounded up a few cozy cardigans.  They're not all super thick, but range from medium to thicker, with a couple being wool.  

Almost all come in several different colors. 

Boyfriend Cardi: Option 1   |  Option 2  |  Option 3
These are standard long cardigans, and I personally love the boyfriend cardi especially for fall because they layer really nicely over plaid and chambray button ups.  I love the color in Option 1, and it comes in a bunch of other colors.  Option 2--one reviewer said it was surprisingly warmer and thicker than they thought it'd be.  And Option 3 seems fuzzy!  Both 2 & 3 come in black too.

Cozy Open Cardi: Option 4  |  Option 5  |  Option 6  |
The open front ones are usually even a little more oversized than standard button up cardigans, which again is great for layering.  They all come in multiple colors.  I have #6 in maroon and it's while it's not terribly thick, it's soft and cozy without being too heavy.  

Waterfall Cardi: Option 7  |  Option 8  |  Option 9
These asymmetrical or waterfall cardigans or whatever you call them add a great dimension to your looks.  Option 8 comes in a lot of great neutrals like navy, maroon, black, and medium grey.  Option 9 is made of a mohair and wool blend.

Textured Cardi: Option 10  |  Option 11  |  Option 12
Textured cardigans are also a great way to add detail and dimension to your outfit without needing a crazy pattern.  I reallyyyyy love Option 10, and it comes in 4 different colors.  Option 11 also comes in several colors, the rest of which aren't patterned but are solid.  And the cable knit detail on Option 12 is perfect for fall/winter.

I just added Option 6 in maroon to my cardigan collection because the beige one I linked to is the only one I have and after 3 fall/winters it deserves some relief!

What's your favorite, go-to cardigan?


  1. Just a heads up - some of your links don't match the pictures. Link #3 goes to picture #4, Link #4 goes to picture #6, and Link #6 goes to picture #3.

  2. Ahhh, thanks, Selah! I switched the pictures in the collage last minute and thought I took care of the links, but apparently not!

  3. Oh, I remember now! I DID switch them, but Blogger stalled and didn't save my changes. Not that it matters--I just swore I switched them and checked them and thought I was going crazy. Thank you for the heads up!

  4. I love these! My favorites are a LOFT notched side cardi that with the 60% off are only $16 a piece! They're so flattering and go with anything!

    I'm not a fan of tissue thin cardigans. I just don't get the point of them

  5. I love a thick knit grandpa cardigan myself. It does seem like the cardigans offered in stores are getting thinner and thinner. :/ I love 12, 9, 4, and 2.

  6. I like the options you've given, but I really really want a big heavy almost sweater-coat cardigan option. I haven't been able to find any though :( If you have any recommendations, I'd love to know!

  7. I'm not quite sure what you are describing, but I saw a few heavy, oversized and coat-like ones from H&M made of wool. There are several of those online.

  8. Sorry-- that was confusing. Clearly I hadn't had my coffee when I wrote that comment. But thanks for the suggestion-- I'll have to check out H&M!

  9. I have a weird thing about wearing clothes with buttons (I KNOW) so I've always stayed clear of cardigans. Then I've read so many of your posts that I've decided I should try one out. I just ordered an open front one from Target (no buttons) with their current 40% of sweater sale. I'm pretty excited to try it. Thank you for encouraging me to branch out!
