It’s hard to believe we’re nearly halfway through 2021! We’ve made it through the coldest months and are already transitioning from to Summer. We’re trading our thick, wool sweaters for light cropped T-shirts, retro print upside down bikini tops, and bidding a final farewell to our once coveted skinny jeans in favor of baggier, low rise *sobs*, or flared. As you begin preparing your wardrobe for the transition from Spring to Summer, we wanted to give you some tips for styling our eco-friendly Universal Cardigan for those gentle spring afternoons and sizzling summer days.
Depending on your location, Spring and Summer evenings can mean a significant drop in temperature. We love taking along our sustainable cardigan for fancier occasions since we can easily adapt it to our outfit and maintain a more formal aesthetic. Wear it below your shoulders for a romantic silhouette and pull it closed as the temperature drops to create an elegant draping effect.
For breezy late summer afternoons, layering our eco friendly cardigan over a button up can add just the right amount of warmth without being overwhelming. We’re in love with the way the Buttercream Beige pops against Tom’s outfit. You can’t go wrong with a simple button up, tapered pants, and sleek loafers or heels.
For cool Spring evenings, we recommend pairing the Universal Cardigan with a light T-shirt and your favorite mom jeans. You can always pull the hood up if it gets cooler. We really like how Jamaica draped the cardigan over her shoulder to create a more dramatic drape effect!
We’re suckers for bagging pants (maybe because our legs can finally breathe after years of suffocating in skinny jeans?) paired with cute crop or bikini tops! We love the edgy Sporty Spice vices Mariel is serving in our Classic Black Universal Cardigan! Because of how versatile the cardigan is, you can easily pair it with loose/baggy pants and a light bralette or crop top.
To be honest, this will probably be the ONLY outfit we wear all summer long because there’s no way you’ll be able to pull us away from the beach or pool. A really neat aspect of our sustainable coatigan (as some like to refer to it) is that because of the TENCEL Lyocell blend we use, you don’t have to worry about getting sand on it at the beach! We like that we can bring the hood up when we need a little personal space from the sun and just cocoon ourselves in it in the evening.
Tip: Style our cozy cardigan with your favorite conscious / eco-friendly bathing suit! Whether you opt for the upside down bikini top trend in a nice retro print or go with a more minimalist swimwear look, the Universal Cardigan will always look and feel just right.
These are just some of the ways you can style the Universal Cardigan, but there SO many more. Every time we do a shoot, we see a model coming up with a whole new look, and it always looks fantastic. The important thing is to play around with it to figure out what styles you like best.
