Happy February/ Month of love/ Black History Month/ 2nd chance for a fresh start to 2018! My year has been quite interesting so far. I hope yours has been interesting in a great way too. Let’s talk some fashion with this outfit featuring a long cardigan.
This is the sequel to my initial long cardigan edit. Like I mentioned previously, the long cardigan trend is one I have always observed from afar waiting for the right time to try out for myself. The perfect opportunity came last year during the Black Friday sales; I bought two colors of the same kind on the Fashionnova website. I thought to style this black cardigan in a different way and took somewhat of a risk with this brown ribbed midi dress from Le Chateau, leggings (because its winter) and my Call-it -spring go-to boots.
The length of the cardigan here is an advantage because it gives you that duster coat, diva moment; especially when its worn off shoulder – Yass!
Now to play devil’s advocate, I believe the texture of the cardigan took away from the overall outfit. I think the fuzziness of the cardigan clashes with the ribbed detailing of the dress. I’m also not 100% sold on the leggings/ sock boots combo but maybe I’m just overthinking the outfit.
Final verdict on this outfit is a MEH, but I would wear this to a casual lunch/dinner date. What do you think?!
