It does not matter whether you are male or female, prefer trendy or classic styles, pay for high-end clothes or try to budget on money, because there is one wardrobe essential that can be worn no matter what — the cardigan. Cardigans come in every shape, style and color imaginable which is what makes them so great. While this style of sweater is extremely practical it can also easily be a unique statement piece that quickly updates one’s look.
This week’s Fashionisto is rocking a black cable knit cardigan. His cardigan is the perfect example of what I previously discussed; while his sweater may seem simple, in a streamline black, it has a unique twist, cable knit. I am sure that not everyone needs advice on how to wear this style of sweater, but I do want to encourage everyone to step away from the typical cardigan. Though I believe owning a simple black cardigan is a must-have for everyone as goes with everything and can easily polish off a look, cardigans are also great for their versatility. Wearable in fall and winter in a wool or cashmere fabric or worn in spring and summer in a cotton knit, cardigans do it all.
The next aspect of this Fashionisto’s outfit that I love is his nautical blue and white striped shirt. Similarly to a cardigan, this print T-shirt can be worn by both men and women alike and is usable for a large variety of occasions. J.Crew is my personally favorite store to browse when I am looking to purchase a striped T-shirt. They are constantly coming out with different variations, whether it is the size of the stripe, the color or other interesting accents.
Next time you are looking to break from the routine, try checking out a cable knit cardigan — soon it will become a wardrobe necessity.
