Lightweight, versatile cardigans are a blessing when the weather’s changing, and after it’s warm outside, we can’t live without a few of these sweaters to throw over tanks and tees in hyper-air-conditioned indoor environments. We found five mid-weight cardigans that are thin enough to wear now under a light jacket, but provide the coverage to keep you from shivering at your desk through late spring and summer.

J. Crew's Academy Cardigan ($78) has cute patch pockets and contrasting brown buttons for a fun spin on the prim-and-proper classic.

The buttonless design of this Cotton Shrug Cardigan ($24.50) makes it the ideal relaxed top layer.

This Summerweight Cashmere Cardigan ($158) is the perfect goes-with-everything shade of heather gray.

We adore the vintage-y vibe of the crocheted buttons on Banana Republic's 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan ($64), and the length is just right for layering under long tanks.

The tiny gathers at the wide neckline and the slightly puffed cuff of this 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan ($39.50) make it feel feminine and airy.
