How to style your favorite cardigan to be versatile and functional

Back in October while attending LA Market week, my husband Scott and I came across this AMAZING cardigan from Pink Martini. Honestly, aside from the gorgeous cashmere cardigan purchased by my husband as a gift while in Mongolia for work, I have never felt a cardigan that is so soft AND as a bonus, could double as a jacket. We totally found this by accident and I am so glad we did!

This is a very functional, versatile piece. It can be dressed up, dressed down, and double as a jacket for those chilly days. It is certainly an investment piece, but one that is classy and will be with you for years to come.

Wear to work

It doesn’t matter if your office environment is casual, corporate casual, or dressy, this cardigan can do it all. I happen to work in an office that is corporate casual, however, based on your role AND your day, it can elevate to dressy. I feel confident that no matter the day, this cardigan will work well in any environment.

Below are a few ways I would wear this to the office. Trousers, dresses, and skirts...it can be done!

If your wardrobe is anything like mine, it needs to be multi-functional, as I simply don’t have the disposable income to purchase one-off pieces all of the time. This over-sized cardigan is a real winner. I wish you could touch it as it truly is a weighty, substantial piece – hence why I had to have it!
