I have only a few cardigans in my wardrobe, and they haven’t been doin’ it for me as of late. I know a cardigan is a great staple to have, but after this weird basics streak I went through (all my clothes were bland bland bland) I decided to hunt down one that could make a statement. Some embellished cardigans look tacky to me, and we all know tacky isn’t a good look for anyone.
My requirements were simple (or so I thought): neutral color, full panel of embellishment, and large enough to wear buttoned up without any puckering. I browsed my favorite website shopstyle.com (it’s a godsend for comparing prices) and wasn’t really coming up with any outstanding results. Taking a different approach, I went straight to the source of all sources: Kate Spade.
Lucky me, this navy number (on the right) was reduced once May’s new arrivals debuted. I was torn between these other two with the adorable white detailing, but navy’s my neutral of choice. I can definitely see myself prancing around our Alaskan home, doing crafts and playing with Simon much like this short from last July’s color campaign.
