Summerweight Cardigan

Summerweight Cardigan is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, easily a staple This cardigan is very soft, and a great length on me, looks/fits exactly like the picture. Its great to just throw in my purse in case it gets chilly because its lightweight and doesnt wrinkle either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Summer Sweater! It's freezing in my office, so this is the perfect addition to my sweater stash. I love the fact that it's lightweight but super warm. The styling and buttons are great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and machine washable I have two colors, white and gray. Delicate knit but I machine wash in a lingerie bag and air dry. Great for warm temps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from has great features and really unique color This cardigan is really unique, especially its color. I've got a lot of compliments. I usually wear this with a black or white t-shirt inside and with white shorts or jeans. It's an awesome cardigan!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thin but beautiful and versatile I bought this cardigan in blue because it was such a nice, subtle shade of blue that I knew I wouldn't find everywhere, and the texture is interesting too. Since then I've worn it a lot throughout the summer, especially to make blacks and grays look softer. It is very thin, so I hope it will continue to last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Cut But Pulls Super Easily This sweater is adorable and a perfect light weight for summer, but the loose weave that makes it so light also makes it very susceptible to pulls so I'm not sure how long it will last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bulky at the bottom I wanted to love this cardigan. It is the perfect length and weight for summer months. It had a very flattering fit in the arms and shoulders, but the pockets at the bottom made the sweater appear bulky and drew too much attention to my hips in a way that was not flattering at all. For reference I am 5'2, 103 lbs, and typically buy clothing from Madewell in the smallest size available, since their clothing seems to run large. I ordered this sweater in an xs and it fit tts, but unfortunately I will be returning it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for summer! Like previous reviewers said, this cardigan is very, very delicate and isn't very warm. That being said, it's still a good accessory for summer and is a nice addition to sundresses! (Just a heads-up: the white is a little yellower and creamier in person! Still a flattering color, but not stark white.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from super comfortable but way too easy to torn I love this sweater so much I bought in white and coral colors. However, after wearing the red one for only once, I discovered a hole on the right side of the sweater, and no, I didn't rip it or doing any reaching/big movements anything, I just discovered it! Kind of sad to see the quality of Madewell items like this.....good lightweight sweater but definitely not made well enough.
