We adore tops that include the belt as we are pretty belt ignorant to this day. The Brett Cardigan Sweater by Theory has a ribbed shawl collar, rolled edge at the bottom hem, banding at the cuffs, long sleeves, and a contrast leather belt at the waist. It's a great way to stay warm in a chilly building or before coat weather fully kicks in.

We are quite fond of the Short Cardigan by Robert Rodriguez, especially since it's so different than the draping cardigans that are so prevalent right now. Made of 100% cashmere, this double breasted cardigan has four buttons at the front, a shawl collar, ribbed banding at the placket, hem, and cuffs, and elbow length sleeves. It can be worn with many different bottoms and either dressed up or kept casual, so we think it's a very versatile piece.

What we like about the Very Light & Fashionable Cardigan by Splendid is that it is on the shorter side, only 21 inches long, so it looks great when paired with a longer camisole or tank. There are five buttons down the front, patch pockets, ribbed banding and pleated trim at the V-neck and placket, banding at the bottom hem and cuffs, and long sleeves. It is available in navy and coffee.
