This week's reader request comes from Sarah, of Life: An Observation and it is right up my alley. She just got this cute striped cardigan and wants some ideas on how to wear it. Since cardigans make up about 1/4 of my closet, I was happy to oblige.
The real cardigan, since Polyvore won't import it:
And here's how I'd style it right now, at work, and when it warms up later in the year:
I think jewel tones look great with black and white, and you can't go wrong with dark wash straight leg jeans and a classic trench this winter. The same cardigan will also look nice with a bright skirt and white or black blouse for the office. And finally, as it starts to get warmer you can layer the cardigan over a chambray button down (or tank top) this spring when the weather starts to cool down at night.
Hopefully this was helpful! If you'd like a post like this, just email me at cardiganjunkie at gmail dot com and I'll be happy to help!
