The Linen Cardigan

Beams+ is the high-end line of Japanese retailer Beams, a lifestyle brand that reinterprets classic American style, and sometimes, sad to say, does it better than we Americans do. Take this linen cardigan from their spring collection for example. It's a study in form and function, constructed as one whole garment, meaning you won't find a single seam on it. It's also got wood buttons and a shawl collar, plus the tomato-red color gives it a Mr. Rogers-like neighborly vibe. Buy it now as a winter layer, and when the weather warms, take it with you to chilly movie theaters or breezy spring nights.

$380, at Unionmade

Styling Tip

Pair it with a pair of light, washed jeans, loafers and a blue plaid shirt for a go-to casual look. On blustery days, a camel topcoat will add some color contrast and keep you warm.
