Getting your kid dressed and out the door on time can be a challenge. Now add an extra layer to that, literally. Kids insist that they don’t need a cardigan. The classroom isn’t that cold. They’ll be fine in their t-shirt, dress, etc., but you know that approximately two hours into the day that they’ll be shivering. That’s why it’s important to find a comfy, cute cardigan that your child won’t mind putting on. We rounded up the best kids cardigans on Amazon to help.
We found cardigans that were designed for both boys and girls, though we’re sure that some could definitely be gender-neutral options as well. These cardigans are the MVPs of your kid closet, because you can pair them with just about anything. Whether your kid is attending a special occasion or just heading off to school, these cardigans are versatile. We found two more sophisticated styles and two that are more casual.
These cardigans are durable to boot. Three out of our four picks are machine washable, and one even boasts a no-pill design, so you don’t need to take the fabric shaver to the cardigan after each wash.
