The essential item in my wardrobe that I’m realizing I can’t live without, and am not quite sure how I lived without it for so long, is the cardigan . Whether it be long or a boyfriend style, a cardigan can dress-up, class-up, or simply cover-up any outfit that is missing that extra “something”. Here are a few ways in which a cardigan can spice up your wardrobe.

The cardigan that I have in my closet currently is J.Crew's forever cardigan, and I am absolutely thrilled with the versatility it brings to my wardrobe. Whether it be over a cami for drinks out with friends or over a t-shirt for garage sale hunting, I feel pulled together and ready for just about anything. I have a feeling I will be purchasing more as I am realizing they are great in both summer and winter, and I will be needing more in spring.
