When the cascade sweater came in fashion three years ago, I embraced it. I have at least ten of them. Some have stripes, but most of them are a solid color. The black one has gone with me on several trips. It doesn't wrinkle, looks great with almost everything, and takes up little room in a suitcase.
But this year the cardigan is back in style and I'm finding it more flattering because it's fitted. Now when I put on a cascade sweater, I often think all the flow adds weight. I still wear them, but find myself more and more grabbing a cardigan instead.
Fortunately, however, I've found another use for many of my cascade sweaters. They make great lounge wear. I love pulling one over my PJs, wrapping the excess material around me, and snuggling into the couch for a night in front of the television. It's great when repurposing works out so well.
