Best Bet: Spring Cardigans for $20

The cardigan is a warm-weather staple: an easy layering piece for throwing over sleeveless dresses at the office or tanks on cool nights. Loft’s lightweight, slightly stretchy version is on sale for just $20, more than half-off. The V-neck style comes in versatile shades of navy, heather gray, black, camel, and white and pairs easily with both dresses and jeans. Plus, the cotton-viscose fabric won’t wrinkle if you cram it in your handbag on the way home from work.

Front Pocket Cardigan, $20 (originally $44.50) at LOFT or online.
