After the last two years, many of us are craving more color than usual. If you have a wardrobe of black, as I do, and enjoy dressing in a column of color, it’s easy to punch up an outfit with a cardigan in one striking color…and it works with any column of color.
As always, you can click the red text for more info and to shop the item at no additional cost to you. Thanks so much for supporting my business.
Whether soft, bright, muted, or pastel, simply adding one item of color to a column of black gives a fresh look that smacks of spring.
This Nic+Zoe sweater has twirl in the name for good reason. The way the stitches are knit from the underarm down creates a flowy shape that swings when you move. It’s available in solid black as well, but I love this blue which hints at periwinkle. The asymmetrical spot of black on the neckline is fun and jaunty and won’t limit you to just wearing it with black.
The cardigan is cozy and lightweight so it’s great for winter and the shoulder seasons. It comes in regular and petite, 2-18. I’m wearing a misses in medium but could have also worn the small. I find Nic+Zoe sweaters run generously so you can size down in them.
I’m wearing it over a classic merino blend v-neck that’s smooth, fine gauge, and not bulky, making it easy to layer over. I find many types of wool scratchy, but not this, possibly because of the blend. It comes in 6 colors, XXS-XXL. It’s hard to see, (the beauty of black on black), but the sweater is wrist length.
These slip-on sneakers have been one of my happiest and most successful purchases all season. They coordinate with everything I wear because they match my hair. Bookending your outfit with shoes that match your hair color is dead simple and always works. The fact that these are super comfy helps too.
I’m not sure how dressed up I can get with these metallic sneakers but I will continue to push the envelope and see where it takes me:)
The jeans are a new brand for me and I love them. I’d been hearing great things about Mother denim so when the sales lady suggested I try them, I took a pair into the dressing room and they came home with me. They have a very high rise and are described as a kick flare. A flare isn’t obvious to me, I just find they look great where they meet my shoes.
