Seek for Cover

Cardigans are some of the most universal and beloved outerwear piece for the breezy season. They have been revamped to achieve a more fashionable and modern look. Cardigans keep you warm and cozy and adds jazz and fun to your wardrobe.
A wrap cardigan is both feminine and interesting and is perfect for those who want to look chic but in a "pretty" and casual sort of way. My favorite type are the ones with flowy panels so that you can wrap them together. It is a great layering piece for your winter wardrobe and especially when worn with a belt you'll create a sleek and trendy look to an otherwise casual ensemble.
Since flowy cardigans already has an eye-catching drape, I recommend keeping the belt style simple and solid colored. Here I wore a fur vest to keep warm and to add a neutral color to the outfit. To avoid looking chunky I opted for a skinny belt to accentuate my waistline. This look is very laid-back, perfect for lazy Sundays.
Cardigans will never go out of style and can be worn from sun up to sun down. They are both versatile and comfortable and therefore are a great investment piece.

  3. The color of that cardigan is great! I just got my new J Crew wrap cardigan in the mail yesterday and I cannot wait to wear it! I have more cardigans than I could ever need but they are great for layering and my office is notoriously cold so they've become a staple in my wardrobe!

  10. The wrap cardi looks light and breezy, I like the string belt that gives some shape to it. Looks great with the furry scarf and boots. You are so good with layering for fall outfits
