Sexy Preppy: Tank Top & Cardigan Set

Cardigans… frumpy? Mumsy?... Apparently, this cosy outwear hasn’t been fashionable since the 90s. Well, my wardrobe is full of them... Personally, they are one of the most timeless and versatile layers, and I love that they can be styled from chic to edgy.

I came across this lovely tank top and cardigan sweater set from Zara. I believe this set is inspired by a photograph taken of Katie Holmes last year, seen wearing a matching luxurious cashmere bra and cardigan set. The picture went viral, and I am not surprised to see a copy of this set on the high street.

And what is not to like? It's so sexy preppy… So I came up with this look, and I must say, this outfit is perfect for a “trendsetter” winter personality…

So here, I teamed this set with a classic pair of tailored trousers. I feel that the colour black beautifully contrasts with the mink colour of the set. I have kept the accessories to a minimum and selected a gorgeous double station necklace, purposely designed to rest delicately against the collarbone. The shoes and handbag are both considered a wardrobe classic because the silhouette and black hue won’t easily date.
