I wish Loft gave their items more interesting names like J.Crew so we don’t end up calling clothes by the same names season after season. Anyway, happy Saturday everyone! I just finished some delicious sushi and with the ever delicious lychee smoothie by my side, I’m ready to post about the Striped V-Neck Cardigan from Ann Taylor Loft.
White with blue/black stripes or navy with white stripes. Something about these two color combinations in either sweaters or tops makes me think of posh country club / casual chic / polo matches. To me, these are the ultimate color combos to match up with cognac-colored accessories like belts and riding boots. Great neutral colors and look inherently high end. To me, at least.
I’m wearing a Small in these photos. I usually go up to Medium for cardigans just for that extra roomy look, so I forget why I went to Small for these. They are pretty fitted but not too much so, with the exception of the arms. I know, again, I’m feelin’ like these designers are trying to tell me my arms are disproportionately big. Boo. They’re tight on my arms. Not unwearably so I guess, but not too happy about it. With the Buy 1 Get One 50% off (sweaters only) promo back on, I’m thinking of exchanging this for a size bigger and then buying the navy colored version as well. Highly recommend this cardigan – I don’t think I’ve seen a single person look terrible in it.
Get it here from Ann Taylor Loft for $59.50.
P.S. Shoutout to reader Tina for the idea of adding a belt to the Loft Multi-Tier Shell. I know this isn’t a skinny belt, but I couldn’t resist adding in a pop of cognac to this outfit.
