To further investigate my obsession, I counted the cardigans in my closet. Total count = 23, ranging in every color from fuchsia to oatmeal to mustard. Black was the most popular color with 4 cardigans. (Black is a staple people, I have to stock up.) My go to places for these closet must haves are Banana and J.Crew. (Real shoppers forgo the "Republic" in Banana Republic. It's unspoken.) Once in a while, I'll find some cute ones at Gap, although they don't always hold their shape as well as the other two stores.
So it’s official, I have a cardigan obsession. They're so versatile, how can you not love them? Those of you not quite convinced, invest in a couple, and watch your work wardrobe double as you wear your favorite dresses, halters, and summer tops with these magical sweaters.
