I had to bench myself on the long versus short cardigan competition, because I wear both. Here's my longest and newest one, a charcoal long boyfriend style, with step hem.
The outfit (worn for a day off): long charcoal cardigan (Halogen); dark gray coated skinnies (AG); hatchy-plaid print tee in grays, black, and white (made by me); flat black booties (Munro, Lexie); black packable coat (Cole Haan); purple specs; purple hobo bag (Kate Spade).
I tried some different options and would like your opinion:
1. cardigan closed, by buttoning a few of the buttons (photo 3) or open (photo1)?
2. pants worn over the back of the boot (photo 4)? or tucked to show the pull tab on the back of the boot (photo 5)?
As someone mentioned on the cardigan discussion, it is hard to wear a long cardigan if it's longer than the coats you usually wear. My outfit is an illustration of that problem. I am not fond of the cardi hanging out, but I'm wearing it like this anyway. I could get out a longer coat, but I'd rather wear this one, so I'm just trying not to stress over it. :)
Thanks for looking! I appreciate your comments and feedback!
