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.
