It has been surprisingly chilly the last few days. So much so, that I won’t leave the house without a jacket or sweater.
This morning I am styling my green/black kitty cat cardign to keep warm in the cool morning air. This cardigan came from Grease Rags Clothing Co. and I mentioned it in an earlier post. It is perfect weather for it this morning and I’ll likely need it when I leave the office later this evening.
If you’re in a shopping mood… here are some cute cardigans
Notice how the cardigan is versatile. And it has several other good points.
These are shown paired with different items. Most with pants, some with shorts, and one is paired with a skirt.
Cardigans add another layer (3rd piece) to an outfit. If you aren’t familiar with the 3rd piece rule of thumb it implies that your pants (or skirt) and top are your first and second pieces, and your third piece is an extra outfit component such as a jacket, sweater or possibly a statement accessory. The 3rd piece adds distinction to an otherwise nondescript outfit, making you look put together, polished, and like you put a little effort into your look.
Cardigans help with an easier transition from season to season.
Almost every store that specializes in ladies clothing carries them. There is an unbelievably HUGE selection of cardigans on the Macy’s website… 673 results if you search the word “cardigan”. The black Tommy Hilfiger open-knit is something that can be worn comfortably year round and currently a great buy (Extra 20% off code: MOM; Final Cost: $23.99).
Now that I’ve completely worn out the word CARDIGAN, I’m going back to shopping for my upcoming tropical vacation.
