Halogen 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan ($46)

When the J.Crew cardigans went to hell, I basically gave up on cardis.  Recently, I needed a couple to round out my “Hey, you have a job again” wardrobe.  I ordered a few from different brands; Halogen was the winner.

The cardigans were surprisingly good quality for a sub-$50 price tag.  They have a nice weight and a good shape.  And they come in a wide variety of colors and patterns.  They also come in petite and plus-size.

    This cardigan is my favorite! I have it in a bunch of colors and re-order the basic black & white ones every year. The fun colors go on sale pretty frequently, so my closet is getting a bit full…

    I live in Raleigh, NC and it’s starting to get hot here. Do you all wear cardis in summer? I feel like I’m melting during the brief periods I’m outside, especially if we leave the office for work.

    Yes! Thank you! My latest JCrew Cardi is all stretched out and terrible and I bought a Banana one over the winter and it’s too tight and begs to be buttoned all the way up but that’s just weird. Will check these out.

    I love this cardigan too and have it in a couple colors. Anyone have tips about cleaning it? The one that I put in the wash on a gentle cycle seemed to lose some shape and gain some stiffness to the fabric. But I loved it enough to buy a replacement with plans to be more careful. 🙂

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
