Cardigans Aren’t Just for Grandma

I am one of the funkier people I know and I own eight of them… And that is just the shorter ones! I never said I didn’t have a problem:) Thank God my job supports my habit and my habit supports my job.

The lovely cardigan has so many more purposes than the boardroom, although they look good there too! This is a recession proof piece because it is always a layering option no matter what the day, time or function. Forget about your moms pearls, this look deserves a bold statement necklace of layered chains. A button-down will certainly look appropriate and stylish, but why not think outside of the box. A t-shirt, like the one shown here, is a great alternative. It adds a casually chic element that people don’t often associate with the cardigan. A blouse with a tuxedo ruffle down the front is also a great option to spice up your cardigan look.

The key to making your cardigan rock is, like all of your clothing, have it fit properly!!! I can not promote this concept enough. As with this piece, it is a fitted silhouette that gives great definition to her waist because you can actually see it! I love all different length cardigans, I just want them to skim the body so that we can see you have one. That is the key to a “sexy” cardigan. The other important element when choosing this item is to pick one out that can stand alone. Border piping (just like this one), great buttons, cool sleeves… The options are endless so find one that suits you and your style!

So ladies, the complaint department on conservative clothing being a necessity for your job is closed. Creative conservative, think Miranda from Sex and the City, is the new black. I just mean out with the old and in with the cardigan (done fabulously:).
