I was crossing Red Square when I spotted this Fashionisto coming out of Miller Market in this great cream, cable-knitted cardigan. I’m so used to seeing black raincoats during these drizzly gray days that a soft, comforting and homey color like this immediately made me nostalgic for a crackling fire, tea and a good book. While either for an aesthetic or merely practical reason, Yusuf’s glasses really pulled the whole look together making it smart, classy and a perfect go-to laid-back campus look.

How To: If you want to replicate Yusuf’s comfy-cozy look, find a thick cream cable-knit cardigan, a button up (I loved this checkered option) and dark wash jeans. To switch up the cardigan style check out the toggle openings on this sweater variation.
