As you know, I have a lot of sweaters. I use them to add color, to hide my midsection, and to cover my arms. Even if you don’t need to hide your midsection or cover your arms, sweaters are still a great option for changing the look of a dress (like Old Blue) or for adding color, or for coordinating with accessories. And a black sweater is pretty much a necessity, like a pair of black pants.

I am not saying you need to wear a sweater every day. Even I get tired of the sweater look. But if you don’t have at least a couple of colorful cardigans, you are limiting your options.

Several of you have asked where I get my sweaters.  Many are old favorites, and I have no idea where they came from, but I have bought some recently, so thought I would share with you.

Good luck! Hope you can find some beautiful, colorful sweaters, so I will not be the only sweater girl around. 😉

Here are some links for cardigans. And of course do not pay more than $20!  If you click on any Amazon links to purchase, I do receive a small commission. The colors shown are just illustrations. All of these have multiple color options, starting at $13.95.

There are many other places to get reasonably-priced cardigans. You just have to look. I have sweaters from the following places, so check them out. Sometimes there is a much better selection in the store than online.

The Loft, Gap, WalMart, Target, SteinMart, Macy’s, TJMaxx

My new favorite is the Made By Johnny (MBJ) available on Amazon.  There is a huge selection of colors, and the detailing is very nice. I love the row of buttons on the sleeve. I ordered the Large and it fits me perfectly. I can even button it:


I know, I know. It is brown! But I just ordered in other colors. And I needed this color to go with a specific dress that I will show you in another post.

Thank you all so much for the comments and suggestions on Old Blue. It was so interesting to see what people liked! Some people loved one look that another person did not care for at all. There was not a clear favorite, but the two that got the most votes were:



The whole point of the series was to show you that you can take one dress and wear it a million different ways. Some are definitely better than others. But that’s why it’s called TRIAL and ERROR. You have to experiment to find the right look.

FYI, if you are wondering, my personal favorite was the orange sweater and leopard scarf.  I just like the bright colors.

If you missed that series, here is a link to the first post:


Go buy a sweater!

  1. Thanks for the information on sweaters. I don’t have any and after reading your post, I will be purchasing a couple soon. Which sweater colors do you wear the most?

    I really like the sweaters that you suggested with the buttons on the sleeve from Amazon.

    1. Black, of course. Next would be bright blue, and after that purple. I tend to like the bright colors! But the coral goes well with a lot of things. I would suggest black and blue for starters.
