Indie and Art Cred
Cozy for Everyday
We think you'll throw this salt-and-pepper cardi over everything you own.
$58 at Nasty Gal.
We just kind of like the print and coloring on this one –– polka dots through the stark white and the saturated green.
$37.99 at ModCloth.
Boxy but Breezy
The open knit of this cardigan works so well to downplay its boxiness. We are in love.
$72 at Topshop.
Borrowed from the Boys
We're talking much older boys –– maybe your grandpa –– but we think the bright red makes this cabled cardi perfect for the cooler days of spring.
$78.99 at Romwe.

This Alexander McQueen cardigan is crazy amazing –– and likely out of your price range, for like ever –– but we couldn't not include this striking piece of art.

This is your perfect everyday cardi, just dressed up a little with lace.
$58.19 at ASOS.
