Even though the sun is out today, we Chicagoans are a weather-wary lot. Which means we can always find use for a cardigan.

Enter the Stafford from AllSaints. With a sleek, narrow collar trim and ribbed cuffs and hem, this spring sweater looks good worn open or closed. And, made of lightweight gauge cotton (in light gray and charcoal) it does indeed offer the “clean finish,” that its designers promise, even as it wards off the chilly April goosebumps.

And if things get really nasty again (which, let’s face it, they likely will) it’s also available in a hoody.

$145 at AllSaints Spitalfields, 700 N. Michigan Ave., 312-283-0400
