Oversized Cardigan

Must HavePiece: Express Marl Circle Hem Pocket Cover-Up Oversized CardiganExpress Marl Circle Hem Pocket Cover-Up Oversized Cardigan, on sale, $35.94

I have searched high and low for an oversized cardigan. It’s a fresh and modern layer. It’s like the springtime equivalent of the blanket scarf that was so popular this fall. The challenge is finding one that doesn’t look like a bathrobe. Many of you know I’m very tall at about 5’10, so for me to think that most of the options out there are too long is saying a lot.

The trick is to find one that works for your height and proportions. I love this one from Express because of it shape. The length will work for most women. The circle hem allows the right amount of coverage, but still shows the length of your leg – critical to maintaining your height, especially if you’re not starting with much. I also LOVE the knit detail at the sleeve. It’s slouchy and casual, and will work with any style jean from skinny to flare.

I know I will live in this around the house with a simple tee and leggings. You can add a long necklace or scarf and a chic pair of flats and be presentable in 30 seconds. I also love it with flare jeans, as the fullness of the sweater will balance the fullness of the jean. I would even throw this over a tank and shorts for chilly nights at the beach.
