A Stylish New Way to Wear a V-Neck Cardigan

Before I launch my summer style series on Monday, I wanted to share one last SPRING outfit with you!

Depending on where you live, you may be able to wear something like this into the summer, but this looks definitely has more of a spring vibe, in my opinion.

One of the newer trends is wearing a v-neck cardigan buttoned up, so it basically looks like a v-neck sweater, but the buttons add an element of interest. You can obviously wear this cardigan unbuttoned over a tank or cami for another look, so it’s a great way to make your wardrobe go farther. I should have showed it that way too, I guess!

Anyway, for this post, I paired this floral v-neck cardigan with dark wash jeans. I really like how this floral pattern almost looks like a starburst design.

This sweater probably runs true to size, but I’m wearing the medium for a more relaxed fit. It’s also 60% off today with code FRESH, bringing it down to just $23.80 in cart.

These jeans are the rag & bone Cate, and I picked them up on sale on the rag & bone website.

This is the Dahlia wash, but you can find this Cate style in other washes as well. Many are on sale at Nordstrom right now. It generally has a 9.5″ rise and 27″ inseam, so they’re an inch or two shorter than most ankle-length jeans, but an inch or two longer than a typical crop.

I love this length on me, personally, because it allows me to wear a shoe with a higher vamp and still show some skin in the ankle area, which tends to be more slimming than letting your jeans touch the top of your shoe.

These jeans have a legging fit, and the material is 42% cotton 29% lyocell 15% modal 12% polyester 2% elastane, so they’re thinner than traditional denim, and they have quite a bit of stretch. They’re TTS, or size down if in between; I’m wearing my usual 28.

I’m also a fan of the trademark rag & bone pockets. They tend to be very flattering to the rear view.

I wore my white leather Everlane loafer mules to keep the look classy but modern. These are one of my favorite shoe purchases of the spring, and I’ll wear them all summer long. They’re so comfortable, and the quality is really good.

These mules come in tons of other colors, if white isn’t your thing, but I think a white shoe is so fresh and fun for summer, and I really like how they contrast with the dark denim.

If that price tag is a bit steep for you, this pair at Target is really cute, and DSW has this pair. I love the woven texture for summer.

I carried a white bag, and I added a pendant necklace to the neckline.

I also meant to wear silver hoop earrings, but I left the house for this photo shoot without any of my jewelry, and I didn’t even have earrings in! I would have added a simple bracelet as well, like maybe this mixed metal bangle.

Look at how light my hair is getting on the ends… I really need the salons to open up. I haven’t had a cut or color in 3 months. 💇🏻‍♀️
