This is such a go-to look for the stay at home home gal.
Take a fine knit open front cardi and hang it over just about any type of top.
The weight of a fine silky knit means that it drapes nicely. The fineness of the knit minimizes bulk.
Such a winning piece in any 55+ girl’s wardrobe.
In the first pic above I’m wearing a taupe silk knit trapeze cardi (#thewhitecompany) over a loose layered ecru top (#nextofficial), and black skinnies.
And here I wore a fine knit cashmere soft taupe cardi (#madelainefashion) over a simple white vest (#limitededition), again with black skinny jeans.
Cashmere doesn’t have the weight to drape (it rhymes!) but its fine knit still gives a nice silhouette.
These looks can then be tarted up with a bit of jewellery or maybe a scarf.
The fine knit cardi is so easy to glam up too, here by wearing it with a silk and lace camisole and maybe silver belt to complete this more eveningy look as I did.
I’ve also switched to lighter coloured linen trousers to create something pretty darn perfect for a spring evening, should you wish to copy this look right now.
There’s no doubt that a fine knit cardi is a perfect third piece, especially at this time of the year. It’s core to my go-to uniform for spring and is an easy yet smart style for both retirement and working from home.
It’s something I’d chose to wear for Zoom meetings, IF I was still working. It certainly creates a neat upper half for Zoom socials.
Is the cardi and top combo pretty much a day to day uniform for you too?
And have you found yourself switching to fine knits now as the season changes?
