I absolutely love cardigans and have quite a few, so I always enjoy finding ones that look a bit different than all the other ones I own. I picked out this cardigan for my sister, but she hadn't cycled it into her wardrobe rotation yet. The zippers give it a unique and slightly edgy vibe (or as edgy as you can get while wearing a cardigan from Ann Taylor), so I wanted to play up that spunky spirit. The pattern on this cowl neck shell is hard to pin down; at first glance it seems like an animal print, then like abstract brush strokes, and finally you give up looking so intently because it is starting to make you see spots.
Wear to Work: Pair with a black pencil skirt and pointy-toed heels.
Around Town: Pair with black shorts (whatever length you feel most comfortable in), flat metallic sandals, and a confident attitude.
Dinner Date: Pair with dark wash denim and red patent pumps. Wear your hair pulled back to show off glitzy earrings.
