Transition (Thurs)day: Stripe Long Cardigan

Delayed two days on this – weather and shipping complications! However, I’m so excited to share this week’s post with you! This cardigan has been a staple in my closet for over a year! It’s lightweight, hangs perfectly, and can be worn so many different ways. Sometimes I feel when I buy a patterned cardigan or sweater that it’s hard to wear it a lot, because everyone will remember it… we’ll I’m here to help change your mind about that! Here are FIVE ways – to rock this cardigan (or any cardigan you already own) with different pieces of clothing.

Ok first lets talk about this cardigan. It comes in this white with black stripes, and the reverse – black with white stripes which is currently on sale, as well as about 10 other solid colors! It does run true to size – however I got a Small Petite. I did order the XS first – and it seemed very long to me. The petite worked better for the length, otherwise order your normal size! Cardigan is linked below!

There are two bonus ways below NOT included in the original photo! Ok let’s go…


I went pretty much all casual looks for this round! Let’s face it – thats where I live and feel most comfortable! First up is leggings and a tunic tank. Is there anything better and more comfortable to wear? My fav leggings- seriously these are the best! Keep you sucked in and toned looking without cutting off your circulation! They are a bit of a splurge, but totally worth every penny. They have a few different styles so I linked a couple for you! I’m wearing a small! My tank is a tunic tank from Shop Red Dress! It’s so affordable and so soft! I love the length and the button detail. Will be wearing this all summer long! Also comes in white if that is better for you, and I am in a size small. Throw the cardigan over both these great pieces, rock your fav leopard sneaks, and you have an easy chic casual look perfect for everyday!

I love these army green loose fitting shorts! So cute with just a tank or tee tucked into them- and with this cute cardigan layered over them! I’ve paired them here that exact way! They’re so comfortable, great price, and have pockets! I’m wearing a size 2 for reference and they run TTS! They’re from amazon and available with prime ship! I wore my woven flats for a chic summer look, and my straw bag! Such a cute look that is easy to repeat with any cute cardigan! This tank is on sale this weekend 40% off and it’s the perfect layering cami!

This next look is another casual style- shocker! I default to casual over fancy any day. It’s where I’m most comfortable and feel my best! These jeans are a new fav! I love any jeans with a button fly! Just enough detail and distressing on these. I love the big cuffs on the bottom too! Size down one in these. Paired them with my favorite Madewell tank top! These are on sale right now with code SPRINGFLING 30% off! Making it $12! I’m wearing an XS, as this brand runs a little large. Just rocking my fav studded sandals to give this look a little bling! I’ve linked similar ones as these are from last season, and the new version!

BONUS LOOK #1: grab your favorite pair of white jeans and a chambray top and your casual look is ready for a perfect sunny day! I love this look, and it just screams summer. I always need sleeves! Seriously always cold even when its 100 degrees outside, ha! I love that a cardigan can be a jacket – and this on is perfect because it’s so lightweight. The pop of blue adds the perfect amount of color to this mostly white look!

BONUS LOOK #2: rock this cardigan over a dress! The perfect alternative to a coat and also perfect to wear in the office! Maybe not this exactly slinky denim dress to work – but any tee dress or office type dress would work too! I just love this look – and wear this cardigan over my denim dresses, white, grey, red, pink, black… really any color looks great under this cardigan! I paired with with a pair of ankle strap espadrilles which are so fun for summer. Linked a bunch of similar pairs below!
