style trend comment

Long cardigans for all budgets | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

Even in the dead of summer I am bound to be needing a light cardigan as I somehow always end up in places that think Arctic AC temperatures are necessary. These are perfect for adding a thin layer without the bulk and enough warmth to protect me from the frigid blasts of cold air. I rounded up some favorites for all budgets below!


SHOP THE LOOK:

1. Grey cardigan with eyelet cutouts {clearance – 71% off}

2. Pink linen blend cardigan {comes in 5 colors; one of closet favorites – I own them in 5 colors!}

3. Black cape cardigan {clearance – only $6!}

4. Marbled brown cardigan {one of my absolute favorite purchases from the Nordstrom anniversary sale – super soft – I could live in this all day!}

5. Tan ribbed cashmere cardigan

6. Burgundy red cocoon sweater {comes in 6 colors}

7. Beige textured cardigan {comes in 3 colors}

8. Ribbed side slit cardigan {comes in 2 colors}

9. Extra long beige cardigan {under $30 and comes in 3 colors}

10. Boucle open-front cardigan {only $35}

Given the amount of overcast with the fog rolling in and out of these parts, you would’ve thought it was fall already. Nope, just typical San Francisco weather. It’s not surprising the grey skies have me planning fall outfits already. Leggings are my go to during the Fall season. I’m very particular about what leggings I buy: they need to fit well, not be see-through, and not stretch out during wear. I’m glad to say these leggings met all the criteria (even after washing!). The midrise is perfect for keeping everything in place and the off-center zipper doesn’t add additional bulk to the waist line. Plus, the stitching along the side makes the legging seem much more expensive than it is. Definitely leaning towards getting the grey and navy versions as well!

The different ways to style a striped dress are endless. This particular dress won me over during my recent try on session. The stripe combination, thicker fabric, perfect length, and price point made it a no-brainer. Opting for a slightly dressier look, I paired it with this sleeveless vest and contrasting heels. I can easily plan this dress for other occasions – pairing with a chambray top or worn as a tunic with some leggings. How would you style this dress?


SHOP THE LOOK:

Navy sleeveless coat / vest – Equipment {orig $588 and on sale for almost 90% off!} (similar here & here {shorter length})

Striped dress – Old Navy {under $20} (similar here & here)

Pink heels – Marc Fisher (similar here {this season’s} & here {flats})
