Rugby Cotton Fleece Shawl Cardigan – SALE $39.99 (reg. $99.99)
It’s worth saying again. The problem with outerwear, is that it looks weird when you wear it indoors. I think we’ve all worn a short sleeved shirt, then ended up somewhere with the air conditioning cranked to the max. You put your light jacket back on inside and it just looks off.
You do need a spring jacket, but if you’re in the market for a sweater and also want something that could act as a warm weather jacket, consider picking up one of these cotton shawl cardigans from Rugby.
The five button placket keeps the shawl collar from dipping too deep, making it more modern and less grandpa. Rugby is the little brother of Ralph Lauren, and the patch on the left sleeve carries over that American Prep look. It works equally well as a jacket, or as a traditional chunky sweater.
Don’t be scared off by the use of the word “Fleece.” This isn’t polar-tech. It’s 100% cotton.
Also available in a true Green.
