Cardigans have been getting slimmer lately, but we still prefer our pullovers thin and loose. Preferably with stripes.

This Lars Andersson knit just landed at Blackbird, and it does just about everything right. The fit hugs the torso but eases off around the sleeves, leaving it with a casual, drapey feeling. Meanwhile, the loose-gauge cotton makes it light enough that it’s as much t-shirt as sweater, and we can imagine breaking it out as early as September.

Andersson has a few cardigans on offer too, but this kind of fit doesn’t need buttons cluttering it up.
