Summer Ryder Cardigan Sweater

Summer Ryder Cardigan Sweater is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from summer staple cardigan My general measurements: 5'4", 130 pounds, 32-28-40. Based on other reviews, I bought the XS. It's still got the oversized comfiness in the body but the arms are more fitted -- comfortable, but it may show T-shirt sleeve lines underneath. I may order my next on in Small, which would be my standard size for Madewell clothes. So if you're on the fence, either take your standard size or size up -- it's meant to be flowy! The gray is so much more blue in person -- slate gray is a good description. I'm definitely going to throw this over most, if not all, of my outfits for the summer. There's a good chance I'll buy this in more colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cardigan hoarder I live in cardigans as they’re a nice alternative to a jacket going in and out of heat /ac. Huge fan of the Kent and this is a similar to it except for this is much lighter. Soft long enough to cover butt and goes with anything. I’m not a huge fan of the lighter cream color but got the lighter blue and it’s lovely. Loose fitting but not in an unflattering way. May order more. U can find similar elsewhere but you may not get the quality. This is as perfect as you can get

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and just what I wanted This may be my new uni. I had it on just two hours after purchasing and have hardly taken it off. I'm 5'6" and 125 pounds. Due to comments about sizing, I went to my local Madewell store and tried on the XS. Perfect. I like the fit, the feel, the styling, and the pockets! Washes well, too. I bought the heather oatmeal. It's much more the color of the thumbnail and not the color the model is wearing.Now, Madewell, please make it in softest gray or blush pink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Multi-season weight drapey cardigan This cardigan was a little thicker than I anticipated based off numerous comments stating it was a summer cardigan. In my opinion, it's more of a fall cardigan, but with that being said I love it! It's an oversized fit and even at an XXS -it's pretty flowy in the body but perfect in the arms. I love that it has slit pockets. My only wish is that it was a true black instead of a dark gray, but the variety is nice. Would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large Shoulders, Fits Amazing I have really wide shoulders and kinda-big arms so I was worried the XL would be too tight on my arms, but I almost feel like I could have ordered a M. I'm so happy that it's a comfortable, not restrictive fit. Love it! I hope they bring it back next summer in Black and Navy :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Was Looking For This is the perfect sweater to carry into air conditioned places this summer. I would have preferred a darker black, but I'm very happy with it overall. I have the fall versions in several colors and LOVE them, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY Oversized, Still AMAZING I am 5'6", 34C and usually wear a size Small, but I read on here that these were oversized and I remember their winter Ryder cardigan being VERY oversized as well. I went in to the store to try it on and I'm glad I did. I had to size down two sizes and ordered the XXS! But sizing issue aside, this is a great summer weight sweater and will go with anything, SO excited they made this. I love the look of the Ryder (fantastic buttonless cardigan) and have been dying to find an oatmeal color cardigan to live in: now I can check that off the list!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cute! Runs a bit big! I'm usually always a small in everything at Madewell. This was cute but I def needed to do an XS. If you want it extra baggy, I'd go true to size. If you want it a bit more tailored (but not fitted) size down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great summer weight I saw this in store and didn't think twice about getting it. Bought the grey color, works with everything. Love the weight of this sweater. Love the pockets. Worn it 2x already in just one week. Been looking for something stylish like this for summer use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect summer layer I have loved the summer Ryder cardigan - I purchased it in both the coal and oatmeal color. This is a perfect staple that is classic and will not go out of style. It is oversized, but is designed that way, so I bought my regular size. This has been a must have in my wardrobe!!
