During the transitional weather days between summer and fall, it's nice to have an extra layer in your bag in case you get cold.

It's clear that shoppers are gearing up for fall, as half of the top 10 best-selling sweaters on Amazon right now are cardigans. The options include both lightweight and heavier knit styles in a range of colors and patterns. Below, check out five customer-loved cardigans, starting at $21.
