Short Sleeve Cardigan Sweater
Christopher & Banks | cjbanks - Short Sleeve Cardigan Sweater

We typically think of sweaters as autumn- or winter-only garb. Sometimes, however, you need a way to layer without adding too much bulk or warmth. Button up shirts, vests and shawls all can do the trick, but short sleeve cardigans are a fun step away from these common options.

At Christopher and Banks, we think style for any season should be built on versatile items you can pair with just about anything. Our collection of cardigans includes a variety of cuts, colors and textures that work well for business wear, or as added layers for casual attire. Whatever your lifestyle requires, we are sure to have something that suits your personal taste.

The great thing about a short sleeve cardigan is the way it comfortably accentuates feminine features. Three quarter length sleeves draw attention to narrow wrists – a feature that women of any size or body type can show off. Add a chunky bracelet to dress up your outfit and add a touch of creativity.

Wearing a belt over a cardigan is another great way to create a structured fit and a dynamic, layered look. If you don't opt for a belted trench cardigan that is ready to tie, wear your favorite chunky or thin belt over your favorite basic sweater. You can add even a bit more creativity by draping a pattered scarf over your shoulders and placing a belt over that as well. It is a simple way to add new life to a cardigan you've worn time and time again. It also draws eyes to your natural waistline so you keep the feminine shape you're going for.

Sweaters For Women

Sleeveless cardigans also look great when paired with long sleeve shirts or button ups underneath. A basic crew neck tee can make the look a bit more casual and sporty, while a crisp button up with an exposed collar peeking through can liven up an otherwise business-only outfit. It all depends on the thickness of your sweater's knit, any embellishments it has and how you choose to accessorize.

Whether it is the middle of summer or the dead of winter, a short sleeve cardigan can turn an average outfit into eye-catching. Take a look through our collection and let your creative side shine. Christopher and Banks is sure to have the right fit for you.
