Hey Glammies!! It is mid-January, cold outside and I am itching to start wearing some spring clothes!! Instead I'm coming to you with an easy gray leopard cardigan look that I have been wearing all season!! Long cardigans/sweaters are great because you can pair with lots of different bottoms and get a fun look. I wear this gray leopard cardigan to work with a black tank/top and a pair of leggings or black skinny pants and a knee high boot or heel and then with jeans it's easy to just throw on a white or black top and a pair of ripped jeans and you're ready to go!
Super simple look and with a statement piece like this you can just layer it over some basics and bam you're done! I personally love wearing skinny jeans/leggings/pants in the winter because you can throw on a comfy flat, Ugg, or boot/bootie and you look totally pulled together even though it's crazy comfy!
I prefer cardigans/sweaters over jackets/blazers for my "go to looks" because I'm in the car a lot driving to client appointments and I find that the fabrics don't wrinkle as much (unless we're talking about a faux leather/leather bomber jacket) and the look stays good all day. Plus, sweaters like this are heavy enough so even if it's cold outside I don't have to layer with a jacket so it's just easier to move around.
Regarding fit, I tend to size down in my cardigans/sweaters so that if they stretch over time it's not too sloppy of a look so when in doubt consider sizing down so you still have a tailored look. If they are supposed to be long, I make sure they still cover my booty so I can wear with leggings and not worry about it not covering enough.
Anyway, hope you are having a great day!! We will be going to a warmer climate here in a few weeks so I'll be busting out the warm weather clothes and spray tan soon!! Workout plan and diet has begun! LOL!!
