I’m trying to get back on track with this blog after illness and birthdays and everything else that got in the way. That being the case, we’re back on for trends!
Something I didn’t understand, and didn’t think would look good on me, for the last couple of seasons was open front cardigans. I didn’t understand hanging ends and all of the drapiness. It didn’t make sense to me and I didn’t see how it would work on me. How could a woman with an hourglass figure that can be swallowed in something too flowing possibly wear this?
I was WRONG! I bought my first open front cardigan on clearance after Christmas this year at Kohl’s. Three weeks later I bought another one at Target because I was hooked. I’m actually a little in love with the pic I posted but since Spring is upon us I don’t really want to buy anything long-sleeved at this point.
I didn’t realize it’s all about what you put with the cardigan that can make all the difference. If you put something figure hugging then you can still show off your shape in something this sheer. Or, for a different look, a thick belt around the waist can bring it all in to emphasize the smallest part of you or give you a waist if that’s where one of your “problem areas” is.
I love this trendy piece and hope that it continues. Not only is it fun and versatile but it is so budget friendly! I was wrong at first glance in my judgement of the upon front cardigan but a few of these in your closet will give you options to dress up or down an outfit and have all kinds of different looks.
