Womens Cardigans are a type of sweater, cover-up or jacket that opens in the front and could either fasten with buttons or a zipper. Mr. Rogers made the cardigan popular for men when he changed into one everyday for his show. Womens Cardigans have never really gone out of style although mostly they are ‘sweater sets’ with a matching turtleneck or smaller over-the-head sweater under a button-up sweater that your grandma would wear. Womens cardigans are more popular than ever with new fabrics, styles and designs for both young and elderly women.
Animal and Lace Cardigan
This is not a sweater but is still considered a cardigan because it is a small jacket-type cover-up or overshirt with a lovely black lace panel near the top of the shirt. This is a leopard print of green and black with other natural colors along with mother of pearl buttons. This is made from 50 percent cotton, 40 percent modal and 10 percent wool, must be hand washed and dried flat.
Merino Ethereal Ruffle Cardigan
This is not really considered a sweater even though it is made of wool and it is a womens Cardigan. It is a light rose shirt-like cover-up with a delicate ruffle running up both sides of the crinkled chiffon silky cardigan and continuing around the flounce neckline. This soft material is a whisper-weighted merino wool which feels like silk. This petite cardigan could dress up a pair of jeans and t-shirt or a nice skirt and blouse. Dry clean only.
