Let me tell you, this is the softest cardigan I’ve ever put on my body! I tried it on at Madewell this past weekend, bought it immediately, and haven’t taken it off since. For our Saturday morning outing at the beach, I slipped it on over a basic grey tee with high rise skinnies, one of my necklaces and black accessories. It felt both effortless and cool, which is essentially what I’m always trying to accomplish with my personal style!

A quick note about fit, since I know that’s helpful for those of you who don’t have a Madewell store near you: I sized down from my normal size in this since I’m petite and can easily get swallowed up in long sweaters. The snug fit around the shoulders keeps it more proportional for me and since the fabric has a ton of stretch it doesn’t compromise comfort or functionality. Hope that’s helpful!

    i could not even help myself…totally just ordered this! it looks beyond cozy and it is very helpful that you mention details in regard to size/fit as it is never fun to be excited for something to arrive in the mail only to have to send it back and wait another week :)

    Hi Natalie! Was wondering how your Ryder cardigan was holding up? There are several very negative reviews on the Madewell website and I was just curious what your thoughts were?
    Thank you! Love your style and jewelry!

      Sadly I have to agree with the online reviews. It’s still SO SOFT and comfortable, but it pills very easily and has turned out to just be a lounge sweater for when I’m at home.

        Thank you for getting back to me! I haven’t pulled the trigger yet and am glad to save on this one. What a bummer, it looks darling on you!
        Blessings!
