Pick of the week time again and as always courtesy of Runway Sale. This time it's an absolute autumn/ winter wardrobe staple, a shawl collar cardigan. This one by the Guess brand has some edgy features like the off-centre button placket and antique brass buttons. All the other features are common, like two front pockets and that it's ribbed. What's not to love about it. It has the requisite heavy texture even though it's 100% cotton.
Even though the most versatile of shawl collar cardigans is one in a neutral tone, this chocolate brown one is just as versatile because it will complement both casual and business casual outfits. When determining the correct fit ensure that the cardigan can be worn with only a shirt despite its chunky texture and feel. When considering a snug/ fitted fit the cardigan should be versatile enough to use as an outer piece or layering piece. That's versatility.
Some of my favourite looks for a shawl collar cardigan include wearing it as an outer piece over a trouser and waistcoat combination, as a layering piece under a casual mid-thigh length coat and, with jeans and a henley. There are many other combinations to consider, you just have to think creatively. Since this is a sale, it has been marked down from R1420 to R749.
p.s. I will be taking a break from the blog for a little while. I hope to return by mid-June. I have to focus on my exams and also prepare for another basketball season. I do have a whole lot more content coming up. Thank you for reading.
