Skipper Cardigan Sweater

Skipper Cardigan Sweater is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sweater! I got the marled grey color. I think if there was a medium available, I would have ordered that, but there was a small only, so I went for it...and I'm glad I did. Like someone else said, it's slightly tight in the arms, but it loosened up right away. So if you go between sizes, you will most likely be okay sizing down. I love the side slits, and the color and thick fabric are just right. Perfect for summer into fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cute cardigan I have this in both colors in my usual size (XS) - it fits a bit oversized like in the stock photo and is a good length on a shorter person (I'm 5'3"). They do shed a bit but nothing super terrible. The fabric is comfortable and cozy but not too hot/heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So so comfy At first I wasn't sure if I would like this sweater, but I really needed a cute, but warm, summer cardigan to wear to the work. I also wanted a cream colored one that didn't have buttons. So, when I tried it on in store, I thought why the heck not! As I've continued wearing this sweater, it has really grown on me. It is obviously made with quality materials, and it is thick enough to keep me warm at work, thin enough to be summery, and yet be a transitional piece for fall. I love the rounded ends of the sweater and the slits on the sides. I feel as though they're really flattering. Unlike other cardigans, that can sometimes make me look/feel as though I have no shape under the sweater, this one, thanks to the slits, makes me feel like I do! Also, the slits help show off whatever shirt I'm wearing under it! Size wise, I got my normal Madewell size S. It is roomy, and though I like that it is, I think I could have sized down to an XS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ashleigh Love that this sweater is made from quality fabrics such as linen (lightweight) and cotton (sustainable) looking forward to layering this up in the fall and winter. Even though I love a super heavy down sweater, its nice to know when I am inside or have on a heavy coat, You will not get too hot. Its still nice and thick just not overwhelmingly hot with all cotton. Easily layerable with a thin turtleneck! And great for the summer. The splits on the side added a cute detail which is vary flattering!! Nice job madewell its a hit, I WOULD SAY BUYYYY!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little summer cardi This cardi is so cute and stylish. The arms felt tight at first but loosened up quickly so I ended up keeping my regular size. The grey one is perfect. The off white is pretty but much more thin than the grey. So cute with jeans and tanks or shorts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great find! Love this cardigan. Bought it for my daughter and wanted one for myself. Give it high marks though it's not been worn too much yet. It's practical yet has good style, roomy pockets, and a nice weight. Nothing not to like!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft & Beautiful Soft, beautiful, lightweight, multipurpose. I purchased as final sale; it runs large, so works well layered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from instant closet staple I ordered both colors in XS. I am 5'5 and 125, and at first I was worried they were too small. So, I ordered the cream in a S and definitely needed the XS. The S was much more frumpy to me, which is not the style I was going for. I work in a pretty chilly medical office and these have been perfect to grab for any outfit really. They go with so much, and are super comfy. Would definitely recommend.
