Cardigans in the City

cardigans are everywhere

cardigans are everywhere

Two things are a constant on my wardrobe: the A-line skirt and the cardigan. This year, I am lucky since they are both in vogue. I love them because they are comfy, elegant and practical. I often throw a cardigan inside my purse; ready to use when I need it.

I brought two cardigans on my trip to Japan and although I had sweaters with me, I wore my cardigans most of the time. Cardigans are lighter on your wallet than a jacket. My favorite cardigans this year come from Banana Republic, and a linen open cardigan by Naf Naf that my mother in law bought me in France.

I was inspired to share my passion for cardigans – my husband often comments than I can never go without them – after I watched Bill Cunningham’s On the Street video on the New York Times. Bill shared tips on how to wear your cardigans for spring and summer 2010. He made a nice connection with the wild irises, lilacs, buttercups, forget-me-nots and peonies that bloom in May. I love it!
