This past weekend, my girlfriends and I decided we would all do a little shopping together in Wichita. As we were getting ready, I couldn’t decide what to wear. I didn’t want to get very dressed up, but I also wasn’t in the mood to wear leggings, an oversize top and my sneakers- the usual. So, I decided on a sweater with jeans, and my two girlfriends both chose cardigans layered over their winter blouses.
I wanted to make this post to show the importance of cardigans and open sweaters over top blouses, like this hunter green one pictured above in the photos, similar to the ones my friends chose. Cardigans are a great way to spice up an outfit and give it a little flare. They add dimension to any outfit, and easily give a pop of color. Recently, I have gravitated toward the hunter/army green color, so this one from Karma Fashion Co. is fitting. Also to note, it is cozy as ever.
If you look beneath the sweater cardigan, I have neutral V-neck paired with a similar green necklace (which I love), cut off jeans and a pair of black booties all from Karma. This is a pretty simple outfit, right? Yes, yet the cardigan adds an extra chicness to this somewhat otherwise basic attire. So in saying that, I encourage you all to find at least one cardigan or outerwear open sweater that can be a versatile, stylish and cozy piece for your closet. I promise- it will come in handy sometime!
