If you’ve been following Britta and I for any amount of time, you would know that we’re both crew neck gals through and through. What may be a boring, modest cut to most makes me feel the most confident and put together. I seriously even picture my wedding dress someday being a crew neck cut! But this winter, after seeing the cutest cropped, button-down cardigans on Instagram time and time again, I knew I wanted to join in on the trend. The only cardigans I had owned up until this point were oversized and meant to be worn open with a t-shirt underneath. The trendy cardigans I was seeing on my favorite bloggers were quite the opposite – deep v neck silhouette and usually cropped which when paired with high waisted jeans make the perfect “I look effortless and put together all at once” look I’m after.
Of course, I found my perfect cardigan at Zara (because where else would I find a trendy but wearable piece at an affordable price??). The sweater is so much softer than I anticipated and the grey color pairs perfectly with any jeans. For this post, I decided to pair it with this black pair that has a super high waist (from Everlane but they no longer make this style).
Since it’s still winter, I decided to pair it with my new favorite boots from Everlane. I love the black and white contrast and I feel like they really dress up this outfit. I can’t wait to wear the cardigan with some mules once the weather gets warmer though!
