Over the years, my personal style has changed a lot & I’ve also developed certain “outfit formulas” that I know I’ll always feel great in. I think it’s crucial to come up with a few of these go-to pairings that you can fall back on when you’re short on time or feel like you have nothing to wear. Some of my favorites to wear with denim: a graphic tee & blazer, a striped sweater & moto jacket and a plaid shirt & quilted vest. But today I’m talking about the classic layering of a cardigan over a camisole.
What I love about this combination is that it flatters every shape and it can work for many different occasions, depending on the style & fabrics you choose. Going out for dinner & drinks? Pick a chenille cardigan & lace-trim camisole to wear with skinny jeans & heeled booties. Headed to the office? Choose a fine-knit cardigan & silk camisole to wear with cropped trousers & pumps. Taking a trip to the pumpkin patch? Opt for a boyfriend cardigan & cotton camisole to wear with boyfriend jeans and ankle boots.
The length & weight of this cardigan is absolutely perfect + I love the on-trend button detailing and that it’s under $35 (recommend sizing up as it does run small). I paired it with this striped camisole, my favorite jeans & pointed loafers to give it a modern preppy feel. Another way I’d style this is buttoned up with a leather belt to cinch in the waist, worn over faux suede leggings with leopard flats. See more of my top picks below!
