Unlike summer—where scorching temperatures nudge you into shorts and a tank top—fall is arguably much easier to dress for. There’s so much to choose from: shackets, puffer coats, sweatshirts, chunky knits—just to name a few. Plus, you don’t have to worry about shedding extra layers. But, perhaps the most versatile style of them all are cardigans. Especially cardigans with pockets, since what’s better than fashion that’s supremely functional? They’re a quintessential layering piece for autumn, and we’re personally stocking up for no-brainer outfits.
We know, there are thousands of different pieces to choose from, so we narrowed down the best ones. For example, we peeped this alpaca and wool blended sweater from Cos, a hooded cardigan option from Everlane, and many more selections from Quince, & Other Stories, J. Crew, and Amazon.
Whether you’re heading to a football game or taking a stroll outside, check out these cardigans with pockets that you’ll totally dig.
