The French Stripe Cardigan by CARDIGAN by Lynne Hiriak is definitely not your typical boring cardigan. It really stands out because of the pink sand stripes and how they are placed. There is a crew neck, solid yoke, nine buttons down the front, button patch pockets, and long sleeves. It is made of 100% merino wool.
What makes the Penn Sweater by YAYA AFLALO special is a beaded rosette pin at each shoulder. We haven't seen anything else like this!

We are writing about the Hanna Sweater by Theory today mostly because we love the stripes. It's an interesting color combination, and the blue and light grey stripes pops out in a fun way.

We don't think the Kimono Cardigan by Design History is particularly special, but we really like the color (we see it as blue, but it's a color most around us would see as grey usually), and it's the type of cardigan that everyone needs at least one of. It has six snaps down the front, a belt tie at the waist, cable detail at the fold over collar and cuffs which make it a little more interesting, and long sleeves.

Beading on tops is so often garish to us, but on the Vintage Beaded Cardigan by Design History it is understated and truly adds to it. There is beading and appliqué detail at the crew neck that matches the cardigan's color, eight buttons down the front, ruching at the shoulders and cuffs, ribbed banding at the bottom hem, and long sleeves. It's a great way to dress up a simple camisole.
