STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Textured Cardigans

The calendar says winter, but now it feels like summer. New Mexico has a saying, “If you don’t like the weather, just wait for 15 minutes.” This past weekend was a great example of this. There were two days of nonstop snow. Then a heat wave arrived, and everyone was in shorts and T-shirts. The abrupt change in weather makes it a guessing game for what I should wear each day. If you’re struggling to dress for bipolar weather, don’t fret; this Fashionista has the answer: long cardigans.

Long cardigans have been around for a while. Their original use was for cool weather, but they have evolved for any season and come in all sorts of shapes, colors and textures. They are great for any occasion and can be used for an assortment of styles: preppy, grunge, dressy and more.

This Fashionista pairs her long textured cardigan with a thin crop top. The cardigan’s woven texture adds depth to her monochromatic look. Her flowy skirt over tights moves your eye to her detailed leather heels, which work together nicely to combat the spontaneous weather. Her look lets her personality shine through with her fantastic hair and accessories. This Fashionista can take her cardigan off in a hot classroom and put it back on when the wind picks up on her trek in between classes.
