I’ve been asked to style more cardigan outfits, so I ordered a couple new ones to feature since most of the ones I have are sold out, and I’m excited to say that I’m two for two! I love both of the ones I ordered. This Halogen long ribbed cardigan is a major winner!
Straight cardigans don’t usually create the most flattering silhouette because they tend to hide your curves, but this one is nice because the ribbed texture allows it to drape close to the body, following your curves, and the thinner knit keeps it from being too bulky. It also feels very high quality and doesn’t “grow” as you wear it all day. Halogen did a great job with this one! It comes in black and grey, and for size reference, I’m wearing the small.
I decided to keep my outfit simple (white tee and black jeans) to allow the scarf to be the focal point. I forgot that I have this same tee in beige, and I think it would have looked nicer, since the scarf has beige in it. The white is kind of stark, but it works too.
The scarf came from Stitch Fix, and I love the colors. It’s also just the right weight — warm and cozy but not terribly bulky. I wouldn’t wear this scarf all day inside, but it’s great for throwing on to go out. It looks nice with my camel reefer coat and my black puffer jacket. In fact, it would probably look good on my red wook coat as well!
I added the beet-red booties for a fun contrast against the black jeans and because there is some red in the scarf, and I carried a black satchel.
I used to wear more cardigans than I do now, I’m not sure why. I’ve been in major pullover mode recently, but I enjoy cardigans for their layering possibilities, and this long ribbed cardigan is a great basic that you can wear so many different ways. I’m excited to add it to my winter wardrobe!
