I know I haven’t posted any of my own outfits on here yet, but I will & when I do, you’ll be seeing a lot of cardigans! It’s probably my favorite finishing piece to a look. Some may say that cardigans are frompy or for old ladies, but I love that they’re more delicate than bulky jackets & come in so many different forms.
I saw the C by Bloomingdale’s Fair Isle open front cardigan ($152.00) @Bloomingdale’s & loved the color combination, but it was out of my price range, even though it had been marked down from $190.00. This is something so effortless to wear with a basic pullover & my favorite dark denim jeans on a fall afternoon running errands. I even love how the picture is styled with a long pendant necklace- exactly what I would wear!
However, since we’re talking about patterned cardigans, I have to bring up the black & gray knitted geometric cardigan ($34.90) from Forever 21. At first glance I thought the two sweaters were identical. Alas, they are not the same, but since I love wearing black & gray during the cooler months. Don’t ask me why, I think it makes me feel warmer!
Both can be worn to add some texture to an outfit of a silk shell & pencil skirt, or wide leg trousers with a turtleneck. There’s over $100.00 worth of savings between the two items, money that can be well-spent elsewhere, don’t you agree?
What do you think of cardigans? Do they regularly rotate in your wardrobe? Which would you wear? Which would you actually buy? Take a look at the last Luxury Look-Alikes for Less post, featuring Alexis Bittar vs. Jennifer Lopez for Kohl’s earrings! Happy Styling!
