Open Shawl Cardigan Adds Elegance to Weekend Attire

Don’t you just love cardigans? They add warmth. They add color. They even allow us to transition our summer clothing into fall-ready outfits.

This season, I had no intention of purchasing new cardigans because I have the basics covered. Open shawl cardigans have been demanding my attention though. I even tried to resist, but was eventually overwhelmed by the gorgeousness of a burnt orange, chunky ribbed knit, shawl collar cardigan spotted in Marshalls recently. Once I tried it on, it was all over. Sold!

I think the cardigan was a good buy. Check out how it adds color, warmth, and elegance to dark rinse jeans and a white tee.
