The Perfect A/C Cardigan

Our regular readers will recognize the Jardigan, our favorite jacket/cardigan combination, because we can’t stop talking about it’s perfection. We guarantee this gift will not be returned. As a guide for the uninitiated, the shorter Sant Ambroeus style is best for those who are truly petite or for taller women to wear over a dress. The longer Woolf version is best with pants and skirts.
