I received this teal cardigan from Stitch Fix four years ago and I never really wore it that much. I always liked it. It's a very pretty color, has a unique knotted design on the back, and it's thin....always a plus for me as chunky knits add to much bulk to my frame. Despite all those positive characteristics of the cardigan, I never wore it much because I found the color somewhat limiting.
As every season comes to a close, I like to go through my closet and wear something that hasn't been worn yet. I want to make sure everything gets worn at least once before the season ends! I thought I was the only odd bird that did that, but my good blogging friend The Pouting Pensioner does the same thing! Well, this cardigan had not been worn yet, so out it came! But now for the real problem. How do I style it?
My favorite place to go for style inspiration is Pinterest. So I typed in the search box "What to wear with a teal cardigan?" and a lot of options came up; most of which I pinned to my Winter Fashion Board.
Here were my three favorites:
Teal with white and silver.
Teal with beige
Teal with Black
I thought it was interesting that all three looks incorporated a coordinating teal scarf, which to my surprise I did not have in my mega huge collection of scarves. I will have to remember to keep an eye out for one while shopping. In the meantime, one of my own scarves that has more orange than teal in it will have to do.
Even though I liked all three looks that I pinned, I went with the beige option because I had already worn the cardigan with black (see last picture in post). My beige under-piece is an old ribbed tank from Walmart.
I wore this outfit to church. It's still chilly here with snow on the ground. 😢 I thought this was a nice look for this time of the year because the cardigan and scarf are warm, yet the purse, scarf, and cardigan add some much needed color when there's not much color outside.
The bag is from London Fog and was a gift from my daughter (old). And now that I think of it, the scarf was too!
The back of this cardigan has a unique knotted feature, and I love the cut too!
Here is a close-up of the scarf so you can see there is indeed some teal in it!
I wore taupe suede booties (old, Famous Footwear). My jeans are from Charlotte Russe (sold out on-line, check your local store). I love the released hem detail.
And finally, here is that same cardigan worn with a black tank and black faux leather leggings.
Have a Great Day! Amy
