The new, Women’s Regular Fine Gauge Supima Crew Cardigan by Lands End ($49.00) will never let you down. It’s the perfect Spring to Summer sweater. A great investment, Item # 41129-2A8X arrives in classic and easter egg colors in true-to-fit sizes. Depending upon your size and torso, the sweater will fall mid-hip, the perfect length for both pants and skirts.
One of the things you really need to look for in the fit of a cardigan is the bottom of the sweater. It needs to fall gracefully on your mid-hip or it isn’t going to look elegant, it will just look sloppy. The recently re-designed Lands End version has a taller neck trim and longer cuffs and bottom trim, so the sweater sits nicely on your body and you can cuff the sweater if you need to. This sweater for Spring/Summer is created with fine, premium Supima cotton with a blend of cotton and stretch, so it will fit a variety of body types without being too baggy or too skimpy. The fabric is silky and it’s lightweight, but without enough body so it keeps it’s shape and does what a sweater is supposed to do–be a chill chaser. As with the porridge in the children’s story of The Three Bears, this cardigan fits “just right.”
The buttons are not cheap plastic, they’re real shell, and they add an expensive touch you can see and feel. You get an extra, just in case, because genuine shell buttons are hard to find and hard to match. Cardigans are so versatile. You can wear them closed up and be a “sweater girl” (just add pearls or a pin), or wear it over a tee or blouse, or over a dress. The cardigan can be worn as-is, or make a sweater set out of it with a matching Sleeveless shell, also sold by Lands End. It is the perfect travel companion!
