A cardigan that goes with anything is a must-have item for the on and off weather of spring - especially for office ladies who frequently pop in and out of air-conditioned areas.
Chic brands Maje and Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet are both pushing a cropped cardigan to the centerstage of their spring and summer collections.
Simply pair them with a monocolor top and a miniskirt or wide-legged pants for a put-together look. The cropped tailoring will make the lower body seem slender - a go-to dressing tip for petite ladies.
Bright and bold colors such as purple, pink and green make up this season's palette, while the ever-popular check pattern appears in the form of knitted pieces, giving off a vintage vibe.
Standout looks include the Kitty puff sleeve cardigan in pink and black from Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet, which is a full statement in feminine with oversized bow closures in contrasting black and a slim, feminine fit.
Detailing plays a decisive role in clothing. And for the much-anticipated Simone Rocha x H&M collection, its cream-white silk-blend cardigan is exceptionally feminine and attractive, with a round faux pearl-lined neckline, rib-knits on the collar, cuffs and hem as well as buttons engraved with the brand logo.
