An absolute must have item for the transition from Winter into Spring is the open cardigan. I decided to go with two neutral and wearable colors: Black & Oatmeal. I purchased these two cardigans last week from Kensie.com (with an extra 20% off discount that ended on Feb 1).
I was very impressed with the ordering process through the Kensie.com site. They processed the order quickly & kept me notified about when my shipment would arrive. It is actually surprising to me how many online retailers keep you in the dark about where your orders is. Anyway, I ordered a small (which is what I normally wear) and it fits perfectly. The material is very good quality and the sweater is nice and thick. It has light ribbing on the inner arms and pockets which are super convenient. The rolled hem and draped fit make it stylish but simple. This sweater is also available in “neutral” which looks like a light cream color in the pictures. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a basic cardigan to transition their wardrobe from winter into spring.
The second cardigan I got from Kensie was this soft cotton blend one in a size Large. They were out of all the other sizes so I decided to give the large a try. After trying it on, I realized that it fits just like the small. Good for me, but I worry about anyone who normally wears a large. There is literally no difference between the way the small black one fits and the way this oatmeal colored large one fits. The draping on this one is a bit different than the black one. It has more of a waterfall effect in the front and the ribbing on the sleeves goes from the cuff to the mid forearm. This one does not have pockets, but fits very nicely and is extremely comfortable. It is only available in “oatmeal” but it is a very neutral color that fits nicely into the nude color themes for Spring.
