Sorry ski fanatics, but it’s nearly time to park your parka in the closet. Winter is finally coming to an end. This girl is all about comfort, but the idea of bundling up so tight that you’re suffocating in layers is not exactly preferable to the prospect of warm spring weather. I would rather leave fur-trimmed down jackets to the Eskimos. Here it is, the time of year that Mother Nature can’t make up her mind: to be warm or not to be warm? That is the question. What’s the answer to solving this confusing weather dilemma? The answer is none other than a patterned cardigan thrown over any outfit for any occasion.
This Fashionista didn’t zip into her winter garb; rather she layered her look with a zipper, patterned striped cardigan. This brisk March day is no match for her matching ability. The color scarf added a splash of muted color to punch up the neutral sweater. Her platform, shearling lined booties and studded purse added the finishing touches to her boho chic look.
Sure, your chunky cardigan might be nice for lounging around the house, but it’s even cuter when thrown over a dress. You can even add a skinny belt to accentuate your waist. Don’t be afraid to mix a patterned sweater with a contrasting patterned dress like this Aztec printed sweater from Free People. Pair dark skinny jeans with any variety of patterned or solid cardigan and a scarf or a pendant necklace in a bright color. Though it might be a bit early, wear your high-waisted shorts with tights and flats to dress up the shorts and sweater. A cardigan can be the foundation of your outfit or a last minute addition; regardless it can keep you nice and cozy and invite a plethora of compliments. Grab that sweater that’s never been better to take on any type of occasion.
