Seasonless Style: A Cardigan with Vintage Style

Jul 30, 2021

I did not intend to turn this into ‘cardigan week.’  I started searching for today’s morning post in the dress section, but once I spotted this sweater, I couldn’t leave it out.  So, now, it’s cardigan week.

This fitted cardigan with gold buttons is just special.  On first blush, it looks like an elegant, slightly vintage option.  But there’s more there.

You could wear it with a simple black sheath dress, of course.  You could wear it with boyfriend jeans, sneakers, and a graphic tee.  You could layer it over a jumpsuit.  Or you could wear it with a black lace tank, black shorts, and high heels.  This cardigan is the rare piece that could fit into any closet.

And the buttons.  I’m a sucker for a gold button.

I’m so excited for this cardigan to arrive, I can barely stand it.

    Abra, do you find that & Other Stories runs TTS? I have a few things in my cart, but i’ve gained ~5 pounds over the summer (hey marathon injury, i see you…) and i’m concerned that i’m now between sizes!

    I just bought this cardigan. Mask mandates aside (sigh),I am so looking forward to dressing like a lady who has cool places to go and fun people to see.

    I just had the most pleasant memory because of this sweater. I had a similar sweater that I loved when I was in my early twenties. It didn’t fit my lifestyle then but I wore it regardless. This classic doesn’t fit my lifestyle now- I am a nurse who wears scrubs but I would still wear the hell out of it on cooler days.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
