For simple, elegant style, reach for a long, open-front cardigan. Palmer’s light fabric of Loft makes it warm but weightless, and its minimalist design highlights a few perfect details like fully fashioned shoulders and generous pockets. The deep single-rib hem draws in to gently shape the otherwise straight silhouette. Palmer is a versatile garment that will suit almost any occasion, so choose a color that will complement everything in your closet.
