Fall Fashion Trend: Cocoon Cardigan
One of my favorite fall trends this year is the cocoon cardigan. I’ve always liked a long cardigan because they’re so cozy and comfortable and easy to wear, but sometimes they can be bulky and unflattering. The cocoon cardigan has a lovely curve that is more figure flattering but every bit as comfortable as the drapey styles that have been trending for the past couple of years.
This is the Leith Shawl Cocoon Cardigan, marked down to $48 on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It sold out quickly, but I have noticed the inventory fluctuating and right now it is available in the Burgundy Stem in L and XL. Keep an eye on it because as customers make returns, it might be available in other colors and sizes. The #NSale ends on Sunday night. If you do manage to snag one, I recommend sizing down.
I’m wearing my favorite white t-shirt (also included in the #NSale.) I recommend sizing down in this piece as well. It’s such a great layering piece that I also ordered it in Black and Beige Rainy Day. The great thing about this shirt is you can wear it now with your shorts and summer skirts, and then you can layer it under cardigans and jackets this fall.
I’m wearing my DL1961 Emma Legging Jeans. For those who read my premium denim comparisons yesterday, these jeans have the 29″ inseam that I prefer. They’re midrise with a 8 1/4″ front rise and a 10″ leg opening. I practically live in these jeans. They’re so comfortable and flattering.
I cuffed them in a large single cuff. In the above pictures, I think it was cuffed too high so I adjusted it for the pictures below. I was working without a full length mirror while we were in Maine, so it was hard to get my looks just right.
These are the BP. Tandem Ankle Boots, and they’re on sale for $79. These are such a great value — super comfortable, on trend, and they won’t break the bank. I do recommend treating them, though, before wearing. I stupidly walked through wet grass, and now mine have marks on them. I’m hoping a suede cleaner will fix them right up.
I added large hoop earrings and a long necklace to help break up the front of the t-shirt. This Nadri pendant would be gorgeous on this outfit. I’m also wearing a stack of Alex and Ani bangles. (Shocker!!!) I know, I wear these all the time, but they go with everything and add some bling without looking fussy.
I love how the cocoon cardigan updates my favorite casual fall outfit formula. I’ll definitely be adding a few of these to my fall wardrobe this year.
And it’s Friday, so that means it’s time for my weekly fashion linkup! If you have a fashion blog, I’d love for you to join us. If you’re here for your weekly dose of style inspiration, you’ll find plenty of that here.
