Wardrobe Necessity: The Red Cardigan

red cardigan

So very many times have I helped create a client’s outfit and gone to reach for that one last layering piece and discovered that the best option would be something with color. Like red. In cardigan form. Have you discovered that hole in your wardrobe that’s begging to be filled by a red cardigan yet? Or a bright blue or an emerald green or plum one even? See, when you’re in the habit of collecting neutrals and wearing them together, you sometimes feel like your outfit needs that little extra nudge into the colorful, you know, just to show a little sparkle of confidence or something. I know, I know, this isn’t the sexiest outfit, but it has red in it, okay?

Look for your fun colorful cardigans on sale in the stores now! JCrew, Loft, and Old Navy always have great colors. You can thank me later, or have me shop for you!

  1. Ok I don’t have a red one, but I do have turquoise and magenta….. will that do?? No, you’re right. I need a red one. Sigh…. I’ll add it to the cardigan wish list…..

    I love those boots. I was looking for something similar a few months ago and never thought to look at Zara. I usually check them out for tops. Also, I totally agree about the red cardigan. I have a list of useful items to buy when I find the and this one on the list forever. I managed to find a cardigan that is open with ruffles around the neck; it doubles as a blazer too. I love it.

    I really like this outfit on you and I totally agree that having staple pieces in bright/bold colors and patterns are the best way to add a little something extra to outfits. Your boots are fabulous by the way!
