One of the easiest ways to create a feeling of versatility in your closet is to add pieces that can be dressed up and down. Items like jeans that can be paired with relaxed-fit T-shirts and flats and tunic sweaters that work effortlessly with leggings and boots help make getting ready a breeze. If you're looking to add another easy-to-wear style that works with almost anything in a pinch, you might want to consider this cozy cardigan from Target that is garnering plenty of attention.

The Universal Thread Open-Front Cardigan is made from 100 percent cotton, but the unique variety of stitching patterns adds interest, so it looks anything but simple. To add shape to the fit, the sleeves are ribbed, while pockets add to the overall comfy vibe. It's easy to pop on over T-shirts and blouses, depending on where your day will take you.

"Lovely, comfortable, and chic cardigan," wrote one of the more than 350 five-star reviewers, who joined many other shoppers in calling the sweater a "perfect oversized cardigan." Another shopper added that they are a fan of the sweater's length, "super soft" feel, and weight, which they describe as "not too heavy, but not [too] thin either." 

Another highlight is the cardigan's high-low hem. The feature makes it ideal for layering with jeans while also having extra length for when you want to feel your most comfortable in leggings.  

"I like the booty coverage and how loose and casual it is," added another five-star reviewer, who owns the sweater in multiple colors. "Great fall and winter staple!"

The breathable-yet-warm, machine-washable sweater is available in sizes XS to XXL, and it's in stock in neutrals, like taupe, cream, and heather gray, as well as soft shades like blush.

With many ways to style it throughout the winter and all year long, your cost-per-wear for this $25 Target sweater is going to be pennies.
