Spring Fashion Must-Have: J. Crew Factory Clare Cardigan


With the start of my new job, I had been on the hunt for good cardigans to keep me warm in the office. After going through various ones from Ann Taylor, Zara and Loft, I came across J. Crew Factory Clare Cardigan – now my favorite! The crewneck cardi is made of 100% cotton and comes in an array of rainbow colors. I have 3 – Bohemian Red (tomato red), Byzantine Blue (royal blue) and Festival Green (kelly green). They all feel ultra soft and survived in the washer and dryer without shrinking or losing their shape. They also have the right thickness and the three-quarter sleeves makes them perfect for the spring/summer weather. But the best part? They only retail $49.50 a pop and now they are on sale for $34.50 with an additional 30% off with code SALE30! Time to stock up on more colors!
