Best Cozy Cardigan for Fall

This post contains affiliate links + gifted items.

Cold weather is here, friends, which means ALL THE CARDIGANS! When I’m searching for a cardigan, I feel like I’m Goldilocks. I want one that super cozy–long, luxurious, warm. Basically, I want a blanket but make it fashion.haha Every two to three years I find an amazing cardigan that I know is going into my forever rotation. The last time I found one was when I was pregnant with Karoline three years ago. This fall has yielded another gem. Here’s the best cozy cardigan for fall under $100.

cozy waffle knit cardigan //  silky v-neck cami // black leopard jeans – clearance for $22.88 // star knot headband // Bearpaw fur ankle boots c/o–save 20% off your purchase with code TIFFANY20 (U.S. only) // Kendra Scott tie dye earrings c/o // Kendra Scott crushed abalone Elise necklace // puffy quilted bag

The cozy waffle knit cardigan I’m wearing is a little bit of an investment, but it’s worth every penny. I suggest adding it to your cart and checking back every few days for a sale. It comes in 4 colors. If you’re a big touch person, you will love the way this cardigan feels. Olaf would like it, because it feels like a warm hug. To texturize my outfit more, I paired it with a silky v-neck cami, but it works just as well with an old t-shirt for ultimate comfort level.

I’m wearing my new favorite jeans. You may recognize them from this post. Y’all, tonal black leopard print is everywhere this fall. It’s definitely a must-have print. I snagged these jeans on clearance, and I honestly can’t believe they haven’t sold out yet. I always size up one size in Abercrombie jeans.

Finally, I want to chat about my new Bearpaw fur ankle boots, which I am obsessed with. These are an update on the taller fur boots, and very on trend for fall and winter. I like how easier these are to wear with jeans, joggers, and leggings. I suggest sizing down if you’re between sizes and like to wear them without socks. I will say these seem to be a little harder to get on because of how short the boots are, but it just takes an extra two seconds to get them on.

Hope everyone has a great week!
