Y’all know better than anyone that I love jumping on trends and trying out new, funky items of clothing. I’ve loved the big, cozy oversized cardigan look but didn’t have any, so I asked my stepmother if she had any she’d be willing to pass down to me. What she handed to me definitely fit what I said but wasn’t quite what I had in mind…when I said “oversized” I meant about mid-thigh, but the two Old Navy cardigans she gave me come down past my knees. I was determined to style the cardigans but it took me a couple months to figure out how. Today I’m sharing my new favorite way to style my long grey cardigan. Enjoy!
To offset the extensive length of the cardigan, I wore a somewhat short maroon button down skirt. I brought a little white into the look, to prevent it from looking too dark, with one of my favorite embroidered tops from Loft. I love adding a little pop of color, so I decided to wear this yellow beaded choker from KyzBeadz. I love all of KyzBeadz’s products and would definitely recommend checking the shop out for more fun and trendy jewelry! I saw the simple top as a canvas for longer jewelry, so I thought this simple, gold, vertical bar necklace from Aqua Kiwi would complete the look. I coordinated the rest of my jewelry to this necklace and choker pair by keeping it all gold, including some Sashka Co. bracelets, my MantraBand, gold hoop earrings, and my watch. Finally, I tied the pop of color back into the ensemble with my favorite multi textile TOMS booties. What do you think, did I manage to pull off the long cardigan?
