It’s hard to believe there was a time when I didn’t have any cardigans in my closet. Now I don’t know how I’d live without this layering staple and I seem to keep accumulating more each year. The color of this cardigan caught my eye and when it arrived in the mail, I couldn’t get over how unbelievably soft it was. I love that it has an open front and shirttail hem, which gives it a more polished feel.
My first instinct was to pair it with a plain white tee, but I decided to branch out & try contrasting it against another fall color. This pendant necklace is another one of my favorite pieces from Myth and Master – it’s so lightweight & is the perfect length for all my sweaters + the neutral stone makes it super versatile! Here are a few more ways I’d style this cardigan for fall:
* layered over an ivory camisole with a suede skirt, printed neck scarf & leopard flats
* layered over a striped top with black slim trousers & loafers
* layered over an oatmeal tee with white jeans & ankle boots
Several of you have asked about what socks I wear with boots – if I’m wearing a style with a taller shaft, I just use regular ankle socks, but if it’s a low-cut bootie, I swear by these shoe liners. They are the only brand I’ve tried that truly stay put throughout the day & they work great with flats & sneakers too! And I always spray my suede footwear with a waterproof protectant at the beginning of the season to prevent potential stains & water spots.
What I’m wearing:
LOFT Cardigan (also in navy & ivory), Caslon Tee (similar for less here),
Old Navy Jeans (similar here or here), Similar Boots (here or here)
c/o Myth & Master Necklace, River Island Bag (similar here or here),
Madewell Ring & Earrings (similar), Similar Watch,
Nails: Essie Playing Koi, Lips: L’Oreal Spiced Cider
Simple and super cool combo, perfect for Fall!

Love the fall color palette! That cardigan looks so comfy!
The color of that cardigan looks great on you. I hurried to order one for myself too. The pretty colors usually sell out fast.
Agreed! I saw that they are having a B1G1 50% off sale today, so I’m tempted to order another color – it’s seriously SO soft!!

I love this look. I used to have like no cardigans in my closet as well. Now I love them.

TOtally in love with this outfit, and how you went with an olive tee instead of a white — which is what I likely would have done. Great inspo! Pinning!
I’m loving that color combo! I just bought a burgundy long cardi but now I’m totally jonesing for this color too! 🙂
So I’m seriously considering buying this cardigan as you have inspired me to try a new color. My only hesitation is that some people complained in the reviews on Loft that the sweater “pills easily” or appeared to be pilling as soon as they wore it. Could you give me your opinion? I am a full time grad student with a limited income so this would be a splurge for me, but feel it is worth it as I LOVE your look! Thanks for any advice!
Hmm I haven’t experienced that with mine yet, but I’ve only worn it a handful of times and I haven’t laundered it yet.
Thank you for your feedback! I purchased it anyway and found it to be great quality and very comfortable. I’m not sure what the reviewer was talking about but am so glad I disregarded their comment! ?
Yes – me too! Glad you love it!
