I styled my cardigan with new jeans from Stitch Fix. Did you know that you can now just order items from Stitch Fix without ordering an entire fix? And they are completely returnable in the same easy way too! I stopped getting monthly fixes when the lockdowns began as I didn't need new clothes anymore. I never resumed them because I felt I had enough clothes, and frankly, I wasn't sure about the stability of the economy so I made the decision to cut back on a lot of things...like cable tv and clothes...just to be cautious. I've hardly purchased anything new in the past two years. I did make the decision to buy ONE new pair of jeans because I saw that skinny jeans were going out of style and all I had in my closet was skinny jeans. I decided to purchase new straight leg jeans from Stitch Fix because I've always had so much luck with their jeans. I don't know how they do it, but every pair of jeans they send me has always fit like a glove. I never have that kind of luck when I go to a store to buy jeans. I can take five pairs of jeans into a dressing room in a store, and none of them will fit.
These jeans are a brand I never heard of or tried before: Mavi High Rise Kendra Straight Leg Jean. They are pricey (to me anyway) but worth every penny as they are the only jeans I will buy this year and I will wear them every time I reach for a pair of jeans. I absolutely love them! They are super soft and have a stretch to them making them very comfortable to wear. They are high rise, which I need, because they keep everything tucked in instead of hanging over the edge; and I'm really digging the straight leg! I didn't think I'd like anything other than skinnies, but the straight leg still gives the slim silhouette of a skinny jean without the clinginess of a skinny jean. The only drawback to the new pant styles is that they don't show off my cute shoes/booties the way skinny jeans do. Other than that, I'm happy to say goodbye to the skinny jean.
Anyhow, enough talk about jeans, back to the cardigan! Cardigans can be worn over anything, I tend to prefer wearing a cardigan over a tank as I don't like extra bulk on my arms. In this outfit, I'm wearing my cardigan over a white Calvin Klein tank top (also from an old Stitch Fix box). I added a plaid black, white and grey scarf because I'm crazy about scarves! I love the added warmth they provide and I can easily remove them and tuck them in my purse. I kept the neutral theme going throughout the outfit by carrying a black bag and wearing black booties.
And now let's see how the rest of the ladies in the group are styling their cardigans and be sure to link up with us below. You may notice some new faces in our Ageless Style group. We did some restructuring and invited some new ladies to join us. I hope you drop over and say "Hi!".
