There’s so much to love about fall: leaves turning, yummy desserts that only emerge once a year, and a whole new wardrobe to feast my eyes upon. Yet, I always seem to struggle with the balance of a summer look and a winter look. It’s either tank tops and sandals or parkas and boots. I love both pieces but what about when it’s not the time for either?! Drum roll please… introducing, the cardigan. Now, I know what you’re thinking, “What’s so special about cardigans?” I won’t lie; I’ve had similar thoughts myself. However, these cardigan outfits from wholesale clothing distributors like Lush are incredible. They prove just how versatile, yet stylish, cardigans can be.

Below you’ll find a few of my favorite cardigans from Lush that will make your fall wardrobe transition woes disappear.
