Top 5 Cardigans Everyone Should Have

What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word 'cardigan?' Is it that long wool thing hogging up space in your closet? The blanket cast over your sofa that you use as a shawl? Maybe it's the not-so-pretty-but-it's-all-they-had-at-the-store sweater you wear to work because, of course, yours is the cubicle right below the air conditioner. You could be thinking of gorgeous lines of cable knit keeping you warm by the fire; of cashmere and fleece with sleeves that are too long, but you don't care because it's cozier that way; or maybe you're just picturing Mr. Rogers. Who knows?

Wherever your mind strays off to, we hope it's someplace warm, soft, delightful, full of pieces you can wear again again, in fall, winter, spring, and even summer!

We at Kariella believe in keeping you prepared for all seasons with every manner of cardigan to keep you warm, cool, pettable, huggable, and oh-so-fashionable too.

Posing as both a sweater and a jacket, this open front, layered-lapel cardigan is easily the statement piece of your outfit. And the best part about it (besides the pockets) is that it comes in both camel and black. So whichever is your go-to neutral, we've got you covered.
