Hello. I’m a librarian. And I love cardigans.
Even if I weren’t a librarian, I’m sure I would love cardigans. They’re one of the most practical and useful “completer pieces” you can have in your wardrobe. (And for librarians, they’re extra practical. Libraries often have cooler inside temperatures because consistently cooler temps help books and other media collections last longer. Thus librarians just layer on a cardigan as an easy way to keep warm.) I have had many cardigans in my closet through the years, and currently, my cardigan count comes to twelve. (And yes, I have more colors on my cardigan shopping list. One can never have too many cardigans.)
Most of my current collection comes in solid colors: dark teal, brown (3/4 sleeve), black, light blue, dark brown (cropped), grey, blue, and red. I also have a few patterned/embellished ones, as well: black sparkles, argyle, colorblocked, and blue stripes.
Which cardigan is your favorite? (From previous comments, the one with the colorblocked trim seems to be a particular fave with readers.) And if you’d like more cardigan love, then check out my “5 ways to wear a cardigan” post.
How many cardigans are in your closet?
