10 Best Fall Cardigans Under $30

Shop the best fall cardigans on a budget
A good cardigan is surprisingly hard to find. And a good, affordable cardigan is even harder. While it's probably a good idea to invest in quality knits that will keep you cozy all winter, sometimes you just want a cardigan you can toss on and not really have to worry about (the pilling, the snagging, the stains, the hand-washing), and that's where these budget-friendly finds come into play.

I've rounded up 10 cardigans in some of the season's most sought after colors (according to you guys! mustard yellow! camel! blush!) that look good and cost less than $30! I've seen a lot of these in person and own a few, too, so I've included little notes in the descriptions. Scoop these up ASAP - the popular colors and styles always seem to go fast!

Can vouch for that mustard cardigan, though right now it's shedding some mustard fuzzies on my black pants. Will have to wash and see if that improves...

Old Navy of course also has a lot of great choices.

Good to know! Some people messaged me on Instagram to say they own this cardigan as well in various colors. Someone said it's identical to a Merona cardigan that she's stocked up on in years past and quality was very good for the price.

I can't wait to bust out my cardigans again. It's been ridiculously hot in northern California (last week was 110 degrees and this week has been in the 90s). I am sooo over hot weather.
