It’s pretty safe to say that 2020 has been a wild ride, and a few fashion items have reigned supreme over the last 10 months. Along with sweat suits and face masks, it’s been a big year for the humble cardigan, which is once again enjoying a moment in the spotlight.
Taylor Swift wrote a song about them, and models and influencers alike have brought a fresh spin to the once-conservative fashion staple. Unlike some other trends that don’t necessarily fit into everyone’s lifestyle and wardrobe, the cardigan is about as versatile as it gets and can easily make a stylish update to your closet.
If you’re looking for an easy and affordable way to add a dash of this year’s most coveted style to your wardrobe, there’s one Amazon Essentials version that’s a top pick this season.
The Amazon Essentials Women's Lightweight Open-Front Cardigan Sweater is one top-rated pick that won’t set your budget back by much this season. Starting at only $25, it’s a great choice for layering up this fall.
With a lightweight design and a simple silhouette, this versatile open-front cardigan pairs well with your favourite tops and blouses. It features a subtle V-neckline and ribbed cuffs, and is made from a blend of cotton and modal for a luxurious draped effect that looks way more expensive than it actually is.
Available in seven neutral colours, you can shop this versatile layering piece in sizes X-Small to XX-Large.
What shoppers are saying
With an impressive 4.5 star rating from more than 1,800 customer reviews, it seems safe to say that shoppers are a fan of this versatile and lightweight cardigan.
“I was pleasantly surprised as I am petite and sometimes these types of sweaters are too long on me, but that was not the case with this one,” said one reviewer. “Length comes to just below my butt, so perfect. Really like the colour and the fit. Perfect for a cool spring or fall evening!”
With a design that washes well and can be thrown into the dryer, this dryer is ideal for those who appreciate clothing that requires low-maintenance care.
“I bought this to wear over my nurse's tunic top. It fits me perfectly and goes well with my uniform. Washes well (no shrinkage) and material feels lovely,” added another.
Since this cardigan is indeed a lightweight material, if you’re looking for a thicker knit you may want to opt for a different style this season, but at just $25, the Amazon Essentials Women's Lightweight Open-Front Cardigan Sweater is a great buy for fall.
