The Cardigan Sweater

The cardigan sweater is the perfect staple piece in any wardrobe if you have a love for layering. This style staple is also the ideal piece of clothing to transition from Summer to Fall with it’s varying fabric weights and relaxed layering concept. You will also find that a good neutral colored cardigan can last a lifetime as it can go with practically anything.

To show you just how versatile a cardigan sweater can be, we asked our street style specialist, Maria, to accessorize four different cardigan looks with none other than Derek Cardigan eyeglasses, it just made sense!
