I used to have cardigan sets in just about every color. I started collecting them when I decide to got to college in Boston. I wanted my entire wardrobe to be preppy chic, just like the cast of Legally Blonde. Over the years, I parted with most of my cardis. But I’ve recently gotten back into the matching sets.
These days, instead of paring cardigans with pearls, I’m mixing them with more current pieces in my wardrobe. Here are the three pieces I use to make a cardigan set look modern:
1. Distressed Denim
I’ve literally been living in these denim leggings ever since I DIYed the hem.
2. Cross-body Bag
Whether it’s my splurge from Paris or this more affordable black cross-body (now on sale!), there’s something about a chain that instantly makes an outfit feel more now.
3. Shoes with Trendy Touches
Two shoe trends I’m loving right now: anything and everything lace-up (how cute are these flats on sale?!) and plastic inserts.
