Save Money and Look Stylish with These 6 Versatile Cardigans to Keep Handy in Your Closet This Fall

Cardigans are incredibly versatile in the fall weather. Toss them on over a dress to take a summery look into the crisper weather, layer over a tee shirt or even pull one on before you hit the gym. Below, we’ve compiled five of our favorite cardigans this fall, plus shared a few suggestions for what to wear with a cardigan and ways to style it.

Free People Keep in Touch Cardi

Everyone needs a long cardigan in their closet, and this Free People cardigan takes the cake. This is a super chunky duster cardigan that pairs easily with everything from paperbag waist pants and a simple tee to a loose maxi and chunky boots. We love it best for casual errand-running days, though.

& Other Stories Wool Blend Cardigan

This soft purple hue is a fun way to insert a little color into the basic fall wardrobe. We love this cardigan sweater to soften down a long maxi printed skirt. For a casual look, wear it with a pair of high waisted wide leg trousers and an ankle boot.

Target Prologue Belted Rib-Knit Cardigan

We love this comfy cardigan in a warm rust color. Look effortless chic when you throw this over a turtleneck top, culottes and your favorite fall booties. This also elevates any casual jeans and tee outfit.  


Madewell Redford Cardigan Sweater

A big grandpa cardigan is the perfect layering piece for fall. As a neutral, beige cardigan, you can throw this guy over everything — use it to dress down a floral mini dress or wear it over a tee and leggings for an easy, low-vibe brunch look.

Lulus Fierce Feelings Tiger Print Knit Cardigan Sweater

While a leopard cardigan was the hit of last fall, this year, we’ve got our eyes on tiger print. Be bold and treat this print as a neutral. Wear it with sweaters, tops, tees, dresses, jumpsuits – you name it, it works.

& Other Stories Heart Button Ribbed Cardigan

Form fitting and plunging, this black cardigan is the perfect way to look cool and stay warm. Try it paired with a mini skirt and tights for a night out look or, on the weekends, tuck it into a pair of wear-everywhere high waisted jeans.

Cardigans are a versatile and chic fall basic. These six cardigans work with a variety of pieces in your wardrobe and look great for any occasion. Shop with Rakuten to earn Cash Back on every fall essential above!
