Dress Up, Dress Down

The Faux Fur Cardigan

Dress it Down: For a warm, cozy alternative to a blazer, try a faux fur collar cardi. Paired with dark rinse jeans, black flats, and a simple string of beads, this look can take you from office to errands and beyond.


Dress it Up: The same cardi does double duty as an elegant topper for a lovely lace skirt. When you want more than just a dash of panache, finish the look with oh-so-ladylike faux fur-trimmed gloves and posh necklace. Feminine and glamorous, you’re ready for dinner and a show in no time at all.

Shimmer Shell & Cardigan 

Dress it Down: A WOW sequined top and shimmery cardi are tempered with dark jeans, a stack of wide bangles and black flats. Elegant enough for a party, but not too over-the-top for a coffee date.
Dress it Up: When it’s time to pull out all the stops, switch the jeans for wide-leg trousers in wintry white – so on-trend. Add shimmery heels, a fur scarf and glittery holiday jewels. It’s a dramatic look that shines through whatever and wherever your special evening takes you.


Winter Wonderful Cardigans

We love this unique collection of holiday cardigans! All come with a luxurious faux fur collar – some detach – and each has its own charm: patch pockets, extra-soft knit, or pretty pattern.


Luxe Tweed Sweater Jacket: bold pattern, detachable collar, button closure
Winter Romance Duster: longer length, patch pockets, snap closure
Plush Collar Cardigan: soft geometric pattern, detachable collar, zip closure 




Mix and Match Cardigans


How do you wear YOUR cardigan?


For us, it’s all about mixing and matching sets, layering colors and patterns, and changing it up every which way. Buttoned, belted, open, tied. So many ways to wear cardis!


Mix It

For a fresh take, try color blocking. Bright swaths of different colors add charisma and fun to your wardrobe, and it’s even more fun when you know you can’t go wrong. Swap out any of the shells from our matching cardigan sets with another one in a different color. Choose subdued tones for a subtle look, or bright hues to create a bold fashion statement. Either way, it’s a modern, on-trend outfit that will take you anywhere.


Solids are great, but prints are even more fun. Mix up your cardigan style with a patterned shirt. Notice how our Perfect Shirts ™ and embellished tees go great with all our cardis? That’s no accident! The whole fall spectrum was chosen with mixing and matching in mind. With the right accessories, this look can dress up for a touch of weekday refinement, or dress down for a relaxing weekend.


Match It

Our EveryWear™, Merino Mix, and Silk*Cotton cardigans are available with coordinating shells. Of course these go perfectly with each other, but the tops can also be paired with different cardis without fear – all our fall colors are consistent across the entire collection. Plus, so many of our other tops and tanks complement the cardigans, offering you a color-on-color layered look. Perfect for when you want a little polish and sophistication. It’s a timeless look we love, and always flawless to fall back on.


Layer It

Don’t stop with a cardi and top! Add some layered jewelry or a vibrant scarf. Try belting your cardigan. Button it up, wear it open, tie the hem in a flirty knot.


Have fun with our fabulous fall cardis – you’ll look fantastic, no matter how you wear them!

Four Fabulous Fall Cardigans


What makes a cardigan stand out? Attention to detail, sumptuous knits, and of-the-moment colors, to name a few. This group of cardis has all that and more!


We call them Fall’s Fabulous Four, but you’ll call them your newest favorites.


Four cardis so perfect, you can’t possibly choose just one. The Silk*Cotton, Merino Mix, Dream Cardigan, and EveryWear™ Cardigan. Each one with its own unique charm, in a kaleidoscope of color.


When the forecast calls for a cardi with real elegance, Silk*Cotton is just the thing. Delicate pleats shape the neckline and a velvet ribbon embellishes the button placket. Truly a three-season piece, it tops off everything from crops to jeans to dresses in a lightweight, silky-fine fabric.


Our new Merino Mix Cardigan is a fashion statement you’ll want to make now and in seasons to come. The crescent-cutaway hem adds a little flair, and the luxe blend of Merino and acrylic is soft but so forgiving.


The Dream Cardigan earns its name. It drapes beautifully, with an oh-so-feminine sweep along the hem for a touch of dramatic movement. Sweater weather just got a lot more sophisticated!


The EveryWear™ Cardigan is just that – amazingly versatile and endlessly wearable. Go anywhere, do anything in easy-wear, easy-care fabric. A gently scooped neckline and button front make it an everyday wardrobe staple you’ll turn to time and time again.


The best part? All our cardis and matching shells not only go great in sets, they mix perfectly with our entire vivid fall spectrum, so pick a color to match every mood!

1 Cardigan 3 Ways

A great cardigan can really pull an outfit together. We love the look and versatility of our
Polka Dot Cardi – a bit of whimsy with a lot of style.
Here are three great ways you can wear it:
1. Over a simple sheath dress, belted, for a tailored jacket look.
2. With your favorite denim and a pop of color to tie things together – casual but polished.
3. Adds a soft but sophisticated touch to a kicky pleated skirt.
Before you head out the door, try a swipe of red lipstick or a bright scarf to accent those great black & white graphics!

Sabrina's Spring Travel Picks

In Sabrina’s words …
"When I’m on the road, I may visit up to nine Coldwater Creek stores over a three-day stretch in my region, so I like to make one outfit work three ways, just by changing up the top. This is a great transitional look: both the cardi and jeans are a deep almost-black blue, a nice fresh hue for spring. The scarf is just the right finishing touch – it adds color and pulls the whole look together. Best of all, no bag to check!"

1. Ruched Placket Cardigan
2. Luminous Stripe Scarf
3. Modern Mini Bootcut Jean
4. Chevron Ruffle Tank
