5 Favorites: Fall Cardigans

Happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone had a good weekend. Today I’m returning to my 5 Favorites series, and I’m talking about my 5 favorite cardigans.

5 Favorite Cardigans #fallfashion

Cardigans are definitely having a moment this fall, and I’ve added quite a few to my wardrobe already. I’m really enjoying the longer styles. These are my 5 favorites right now, plus a bonus 6th cardigan that I don’t have any longer but I thought was worth a mention.

I get a lot of questions about what coats to wear over longer cardigans. My answer is definitely something that is longer than the sweater. A long cardigan hanging out beneath your coat isn’t a good look. (LOL!) Check out my Fall/Winter Coat Guide for some recommendations.

Also, there are a lot of sales going on right now, including some of the cardigans I’m sharing here, so watch for sale alerts throughout the post.

5 Favorite Fall Cardigans

#1. Open Front Long-Line Sweater

I’m sure it will surprise no one that this open front cardigan from Old Navy tops my list. It’s nice quality, thick and soft, has a flattering fit, and priced under $35. Unfortunately it’s excluded from most promotions, but it’s still a great price.

SALE ALERT >> Extra 35% off at Old Navy (discount taken at checkout; some exclusions apply.)

This sweater comes in 6 pretty colors including some great neutrals and this pretty burnt orange. For size reference, I have the small. You can see more of this look in THIS POST.

#2. Rib Knit Wool Blend Cardigan

This sweater is a little bit pricier than the one above, but I really like the ribbed stitching through the torso and the long, slim silhouette. I also find a V-neck cardigan flattering and easy to wear. This yellow color is sold out, but this cardigan comes in a slew of other gorgeous colors. For size reference, I have this in a small. More of this look in THIS POST.

Also, check out the long v-neck cardigan at LOFT for a more affordable version of this sweater. It comes in black and grey. (And it’s 40% off with code FALLFEST.)

#3. Draped Waffle Knit Thermal Hoodie

This one is old, but it’s still available (and on sale!!!) This cardigan comes in black, grey, and beige (they call it swan.) I’m also excited to tell those of you who are already super fans of this cardigan that it now comes in olive, plum, and charcoal! More of this look in THIS POST.

SALE ALERT >> 30% off everything at Splendid with code INTHEFAM. 

I’ve talked about this sweater so much over the years, but for those of you just tuning in, I wear this cardigan all year ’round. I actually have two — the black and the swan, thus breaking my no-duplicates rule. (LOL!) I like to throw it on over my pajamas in the morning, it’s cute over a tank top and shorts in the summer, and it works just as well over a t-shirt and jeans in the fall and winter. I always travel with it because it looks good with almost everything, and it’s easy to throw off and on. For size reference, I have the medium.

#4. Long Open Front Cardigan

Okay, this isn’t fair because this cardigan sold out, but I love it and figured it’s only right to include it. It’s so soft, and I love the slender flattering fit. I wish they’d bring it back. See more of this look in THIS POST.

If you’re looking for a long navy cardigan, this one and this one both come in navy.

#5. Three Quarter Sleeve Cashmere Cardigan

This open front cardigan is the spendiest of the lot, and probably the least practical because of the 3/4 length sleeves. Actually, it’s probably quite practical for those living in southern climates where it doesn’t get super cold. Up here, I will probably only be able to wear it for a few months. It’s too warm for the 70-degree temps we’ve been having, and it probably won’t be warm enough once it gets really cold after the holidays, but it’s so pretty and I just love a cashmere cardigan. It is sooo soft against the skin.

I got this sweater at the #NSale for $99, so if it’s on your wishlist, I advise holding out till it goes on sale again. I expect it will when they start clearing out their fall merchandise. More of this look in THIS POST.

BONUS CARDIGAN: Classic Boyfriend Cardigan

I also want to give a shout-out to this boyfriend cardigan at LOFT. I had a couple of these a few years ago, and I think I finally parted with them last spring, but these are a nice cross between the super long cardigans that are trendy right now and the short sweater-set type of cardigans that can look dated. Plus I always find the boyfriend cardigans easy to wear because the V-neckline looks good over almost everything. These come in several nice classic colors, and they’re on sale right now too! More of this look in THIS POST.

SALE ALERT >> 40% off full-price styles at LOFT with code FALLFEST.

Another option if you like a boyfriend cardigan is this textured boyfriend cardigan at Old Navy, and it’s an extra 35% off thru tomorrow, 10/10.

If you have any of these cardigans, feel free to chime in and let us know how you like them.
