We decided to build the case for cardigans, once and for all: People, this is a core item and you should respect it.
They have gone through so much already, poor cardigans. They have been named “librarian chic”, “grandpa –esque”, uncool and un-sexy. Excuse me but haven’t you ever watched a Superman movie? Does he look not sexy when he unbuttons his cardigan to change into his suit? (ok maybe the latex suit is a sure winner but it won’t get you into the office on a Wednesday morning…). Here are some things we have gathered for you, some cardigan facts you should check before going out to shop for your new wardrobe:
BE AS PRECISE AS YOUR LOOK AND KEEP THE TIME WITH AN OMEGA DE VILLE PRESTIGE WATCH.
· They can work your wardrobe like a coat, on those slightly warmer days of fall.
· They can replace a sweater when you are working indoors and just by unbuttoning they give you the air and comfort you need.
· They look good with crisp shirts and ties, but they also rock together with T-shirts and jeans.
· A cardigan can be worn under your blazer, without taking up any room and making the situation “tight”.
· Its details shouldn’t draw attention: Choose a style with small buttons or a zipper, have in mind, however, that the later looks strange underneath a blazer.
· Find the perfect fit. It can be loose but not too shaggy.
· The sexiest detail of them all is when you leave the last button undone.
· Cashmere cardigans are ideal for the tough winter months; however, the perfect choice if you live in a warm climate like Greece is a cotton or wool blend number.
