Sweaters are a great addition to any wardrobe because they make it so easy to layer; throw one on over other clothing and take it off again if the weather warms up. When it comes to sweaters, there are essentially two choices: a pullover or a cardigan—the difference being that a cardigan opens in the front and a pullover does not. A popular style that looks good with just about any kind of attire is the cropped cardigan sweater.
Offered by Style&Co., INC International Concepts and Calvin Klein, a cardigan can be fancy enough to lightly cover a favorite evening dress or casual enough to go with a tee and a favorite pair of pants; it mostly depends on the fabric. A velvety polyester velour cropped cardigan sweater would work nicely for a night on the town while a cotton version with a V neckline surrounded with soft ruffles might be just perfect for a day spent in jeans at the park.
While most cardigans have some sort of closure in the front—buttons, a zipper or tie strings—there are also open front cardigans that have no closure. Available in regular, plus sizes and petite sizes in beautiful colors like grape, red and French roast—and in different lengths including waist length, hip length and upper thigh length—cardigans are a piece of clothing that’s flattering to almost every figure.
A lightweight cardigan is a good choice to layer under other outdoor wear like a jacket because it adds that little bit of extra warmth that can make the difference between almost cold and perfectly warm—without adding too much bulk. Acrylic, polyester, and cashmere cardigans are all good choices when it comes to a thin fabric that still adds warmth, so try a cardigan made from these fabrics if possible.
Stay warm and comfortable no matter how cold it is outside. Browse the selection of cropped cardigan sweaters today at Macy’s.
