If you love layering, you probably love collecting Cardigans like I do. Cardigans are a wardrobe staple because they are so versatile. Not only for style, but for function. Something to throw on when it gets a bit chilly or when you just want to finish off your outfit in style.
Every season a few more cardigans seem to find their way into my life like this one I purchased on sale from Anthropologie (one of my favourite shops, by the way!). I found this one on the sale rack and to be honest, I didn’t realize it was a gem until later. I purchased it because it met a few of my basic criteria when shopping: cardigan (check), grey (check), sale (check). Afterwards I actually forgot about it and it sat in my closet for a few weeks. Not until I finally pulled it out to wear it for the first time did I realize the following 4 pretty details about it that would make it a cardigan on repeat this season!
1. Funnel/Bell Sleeves – this popular feature is my all time favourite detail on any fashion piece. Bell sleeves are flattering on anyone and adds an eye-catching statement to any outfit (especially if you’re like me and move your hands around alot!). Just be careful to avoid dipping these exaggerated cuffs into a few dishes at the dinner table!
2. Lightweight Ribbed Knit – I always like my sweaters to have some texture and this cardigan has just the right amount of ribbing. Not too thick or thin but just the perfect amount that gives a nice light weight drape for a flowy feel.
3. Waterfall Collar – flattering for all, the waterfall drape collar is a flowy design to the neckline and adds a soft asymmetrical and unstructured feel to any outfit. A more relaxed looking alternative to the classic blazer cut.
4. Draped Back – probably my favourite detail of this cardigan is the long drapey length in the back. With a fitted band at the hem for shape I love how it gives the bum a nice little hug!
By far this is my favourite cardigan this season with it’s all-in-one details and features. This particular one is sold out and no longer available but I have linked a few other pieces which have similar details and features for you to shop. Happy shopping!
