Starry Night Cardigan - by J. Crew

starry night cardigan
Starry night indeed – both because it mirrors a clear night sky, and because you're sure to exude star quality style in this piece. There is a catch – it doesn't quite lay as neatly / compactly as it does on the model. It has a jersey like drape which weighs it down a little and allows the corners at the collarbones to flip over. In my opinion, this cardigan would have been much more functional (and stylish) in a more structured fabric that holds its shape. Otherwise, it should have been cut in more of an open V shape to blend more naturally with the drape. That said, it's a classic piece that can be worn many ways. For a casual dinner with the ladies, try it over a fitted white tank, light wash boyfriend jeans, rolled up, patent blue pumps, loose up-do, and sparkly studs. For a formal occasion, wear it over a fitted mini white dress, classic black pumps, and lots of silver cuffs and bangles.
