This Peplum Striped Top keeps selling out at Nordstrom!  Keep checking back to see if it’s in stock.

One of the most versatile tops you can have in your closet is a cardigan!  Throw one on over a tee if you’re in a hurry and you’ll look put together instantly!  Do you know of all the styles of cardigans?  Just to name a few are an open, a style I like to call “drapey” where the material drapes in the front, boyfriend and belted.   Cardigans come in a few materials too: sweater, cotton/rayon/spandex and even fleece.

I have four cardigans in my capsule wardrobe: marled gray, beige, charcoal gray and black.  When I was creating my capsule for the winter, I chose to include all solid neutral color cardigans, so they would coordinate with all my other tops.  If I’m wearing one of my solid neutral cardigans, I like to add interest to my outfit by wearing either a patterned top underneath or a scarf or statement necklace.  In the photo above, you’ll notice I’m wearing this peplum striped top from Nordstrom.  I’m not usually one to shop when I’ve completed my capsule for the season, but I just had to add this cute top!  I took out my regular white/black striped top and put this one in it’s place.

  1. Jodie, yes I agree that cardigans are like unstructured blazers! I love that they come in lots of colors too. Thank you, Leanne.

  2. I’m a huge fan of cardigans. There are so many ways to style them. For winter, I have a grey cardigan which is a great basic. Then I change up the layer underneath and accessories. I have several scarves to go with it and also change up the jewelry for tons of variations.
