Cardigan Clips, a (Sweater) Girl's Best Friend

This post first appeared on the Vintage Bulletin

Today was muggy and uncomfortable but earlier this week I felt fall sneaking up on me. I can't say that I'm thrilled.

I don't love cold weather but I do love sweaters. And not only do I love sweaters, I love sweater clips. Also called cardigan clips and sweater guards, they're both handy and stylish. Some are pretty simple:

available on Etsy
Some get crazy-fancy.

Sweater clips were the perfect solution to those pesky cardigans that never stayed put when you draped them just so over the shoulder.

I have some but I think it might be time to stock up. I love these smaller, simple goldtone ones:

And I definitely get a lot of wear out of these.

 But may it's time to get fancy like Ms. Sidney! Do you wear sweater clips?


  1. ohhh I love sweater clips! They are so handy and there are so many pretty ones. And they are inexpensive vintage purchases too. Long live the sweater clips!

  2. I remember these and loved them back in the time! Now I need to get me some more.

  3. I don't have any sweater clips, but I keep eyeing them online. They're so cute, and it's nice to know that they're kind of practical too.


Thanks so much for your comments!
