    Exactly I bought a cheap one $15 from h&m on clearance. Wore it, loved it. Bought better quality ones different fabrics and colors. Cotton, wool, alpaca. And I really love them.

    I had a hard time finding one that I liked, but I grabbed one of the BR slim-fitting wool shawl collars over the winter.



    I like to wear it with jeans and a white henley and think it makes for a nice casual look.

    I have a few thicker cardigans from Target that I really like. They're just Merona and cost twenty to thirty dollars.

    The Tommy H outlet near me had a bunhc in various color combos. So did Target, Gap and Old Navy. Kind of past the prime season for those though.

    LOVE chunky cardigans.

    Strong disklike for "thin" cardigans- look feminine in my opinion.

    I like cardigans a lot. Thin or chunky. They're nice because it would probably be too dressy to wear a blazer where I work but unnoticeable to just throw on a cardigan. They keep me warm and show a bit more shirt than a regular sweater.

    I go back and forth on cardigans. I own two chunky shawl collar cardigans and they fit really well, but it seems I only wear them 2-3 times each during the winter. I tend to wear quilted wool vests, sweater jackets, or V-neck sweaters as my layering pieces.

    As soon as I get rid of some weight around my middle (hopefully end of summer), I will reconsider cardigans. I like the look of a nice trim cardigan, but right now they just look dumpy on me.

I think that if they're fisherman-sweater chunky they can work, but the thin, light ones give off that effeminate vibe in my opinion. I tried on a thin men's cardigan at target a few months ago and my wife asked me if I found it in the women's section.

    Then again, depending upon your body type, it might work out great for you.
    nothing else flatters my cleavage like a good cardigan though.

    They are great for layering. A cardigan can offer many of the advantages of a blazer, without the "formality." A thin one you can wear with a shirt, or throw a jacket over it.
