Style Advice of the Week

February is the time of year when love is in the air. Valentine’s Day approaches and we all are reminded of the love we are surrounded by: family, friends or that special someone. But love isn’t just limited to the people around you. A classic trend in fashion that I personally always love is cardigans. Cardigans are something that is appropriate for all ages, functional, wearable year round and can dress up or dress down and outfit. They make transitioning an outfit practically effortless. I believe they are another basic staple in any person’s closet.

This Fashionista rocks the fantastic trend of a cardigan in an adorable bright red hue. She pairs her bright sweater with a simple but feminine white lace top. She keeps her looks casual with dark wash fitted skinny jeans and a pair of brown riding boots. The Fashionista also adds a rose gold watch and a simple pair of earrings, making this outfit perfect of class or work. She could easily change up her accessories and shoes to dress this outfit up for night.

This Fashionista’s look works so well for her because she found her own personal twist on a classic trend. She looks great with her bright red coloring. The options of colors and patterns of cardigans are endless, from a kimono styled cardigan to a traditional classic black cardigan. For an adventurous color choice similar to our Fashionista’s, look at H&M’s bright red knit cardigan. For a bolder patterned cardigan, try looking at Forever 21’s Southwestern inspired printed cardigan. On the other hand, for a classic look with intricate detailing, check out Forever 21’s cream cardigan with a delicate zig zag pattern.
