Hello, I’m Haley from Cardigan Junkie. Many thanks to Danielle for swapping blogs with me today! She can be found on my blog posting about something every girl needs, and I’m here to do the same.
In case you have any doubt in your mind, I’m here to convince you how versatile a single cardigan can be this season by styling one item several ways. (My blog name is no joke – I’m a little addicted to cardigans.)
The piece I chose is the classic J. Crew Jackie cardigan in a sunny yellow shade that will be perfect for spring and summer. And here’s how you can wear it for almost any occasion:
Yeah, I look good here at Target
During the summer, it’s so easy to put on some shorts, a tank top and flip flops and go about your business. However, by adding a light layer on top you look way more put together.
Date night is important
Every once in a while, it’s important to go out on a date to a place where the napkins aren’t disposable. Layering the cardigan over a girly dress is slimming, somewhat unexpected, and offers a way to keep your arms covered if you’re into that.
It’s a mod, mod world
If your style is more modern and quirky than boho casual, a ladylike cardigan and flared skirt make a very cute combo.
It’s business time.
A pop of color over a basic black work dress adds personality and gets more mileage out of a staple piece you already own.
Thanks for the great post Haley. Much “sunnier” and happier than the one I have over on your site today. This post has me seriously wanting to break my spending freeze for one of these cardigans. I guess I’ll add it to my wish list and see what happens!
