Cardigans are one of my closet essentials, no matter the season. While I love having a handful of traditional styles, I often reach for ones with an interesting style element to add a modern touch to my outfit. This spring, we are seeing cardigans with interesting draping features. Some have crochet or eyelet details, while others are made of cozy fabrics usually reserved for loungewear. Below are my top 10 draping cardigans you may want to consider adding to your spring wardrobe.
