I discovered the J.Crew featherweight cardigan ($59.50) last year during one of my shopping rampages that became a staple of my visits back to the US from London. (When you’re looking at a 2.1 exchange rate, it feels like they’re just giving stuff away over here so Jason and I often came over with near-empty suitcases and took them back bulging full of new clothes.) As soon as I started wearing mine, I wished I’d bought it in a few more colors besides navy.
It’s made of cotton in a 16-gauge knit. For those of you who don’t speak textile-ese, that means cool, comfy, and light as paper.
I’ve worn mine about a billion times since I bought it and I plan on snatching up some additional colors this time around.
