Ah, fall—also known as sweater weather. Or more specifically, cardigan weather. After all, on a breezy autumn day, when it’s too warm for a coat yet too cold to go without, what are you to do? Slip on a cozy cardigan, of course. Whether you’re lounging around at home or going apple picking, a cardigan is the perfect lighter-weight layer to keep you warm.
Below are 10 of the most popular cardigans you can still buy right now for fall. From the cult-favorite Barefoot Dreams cardigan to the coziest chunky knit cardigan on Amazon, these are the cardigans that have thousands of glowing reviews online.
1. The celebrity-approved Barefoot Dreams cardigan

Chrissy Teigen, Kate Hudson, and the Kardashians are just a handful of the celebrities who are obsessed with Barefoot Dreams. While Chrissy uses her Barefoot Dreams throw blanket every day (according to Twitter), thousands of Nordstrom shoppers say the cardigan is just as soft and splurge-worthy. It constantly sells out at the retailer so if you want one for the upcoming winter, snag it while you still can.
2. This slouchy boyfriend cardigan

There’s a time and place for super heavy sweaters, but there’s also a time and place for something a little more lightweight (like on a sunny fall afternoon or in front of a roaring fire).

People like that it’s not too thick yet not too thin and is made of a relaxed and breathable fabric that’s ideal for layering.
