I'm Never Giving Up Cardigans—Here Are the Ones I'm Into for Spring

Though we're still a ways away from April 25, when "all you need is a light jacket," spring will eventually arrive at our doorsteps. And when it does, I'm not going to give up on my love for cardigans. Instead, I'm planning on swapping out all of my chunky, cable-knit sweaters for lighter, spring-ready versions: cropped, floral, sheer, gingham—you name it. 

Not to brag but as a Southern Californian, I can pretty much start wearing these lighter cardigans now. For everyone else, they're perfect for layering until spring emerges and you can gleefully ditch the outer layers and show off your cute cropped cardi. Scroll down to shop my 29 favorite lightweight cardigans for spring, from H&M to Veronica Beard.
