Here's the back story which you can feel free to skip:)
My mother gave me this gorgeous Laura Ashley cardigan. Despite not having been a 'classic' dresser for quite some time, she still tends to buy me classic pieces when she gives me clothing. Now I love everything Chanel and when I saw the cardigan I did love it, with it's jacket cut and Chanel style detail, but had no idea what to do with it. Pairing with classic items just creates a frumpy look on me. So it's been hanging in my closet most of winter until last night when I had some time to really consider how I might wear it.
I knew I would wear skinny black bottoms but it was the top that was challenging me. If not for YLF, I wouldn't have thought to consider what I wouldn't ordinarily pair with it as an option. I tried a silky front abstract patterned tshirt, which I liked a lot but not for the office, so at the last minute this morning I grabbed my Metalicus tunic and tried it with that and really liked the end result.
My photos were taken after work so lighting is poor, sorry. And I am 4 days off a haircut and my hair is so 'boofy" lol.
What do you think? I do love the cardigan and I am hoping this works. My aim was to edge up the classic piece.
Thanks for looking and for your thoughts.
