From floral to ruffled, it’s no secret First Lady Michelle Obama loves her cardigans. Along with sheath dresses and belts, they’ve quickly become one of her signatures.

And it’s really no surprise why. They work just as well over a dress as they do with a t-shirt and a pair jeans. Taking a page from the First Lady’s style guide, here are a few cardigans we’re coveting.
