There is nothing that I loathe more than when women toss on a cardigan and assume that it makes an outfit work appropriate. Slinky party dress? Just throw a cardigan over it. Nude colored tube top? Wear a cardigan. Leggings and a long tank top? Grab that cardigan.
Incidentally, these are all fashion faux pas that I’ve seen walking the halls of the Capitol.
If you prefer to wear cardigans to work, and many women do, you need to make sure that the separates you’re wearing with that cardi are also work appropriate. Thus, I recommend that if you want to wear cardigan, you wear a blouse underneath it.
This is a great outfit for late-Winter and early-Spring. I wanted something that blended a neutral color with jewel tones and bright blouse.
Also, while it would have seemed natural to wear a grey or black cardigan, I think that’s boring. The blush-colored sweater tones down the bright azalea blouse while still providing a complimentary shot of color.
