Cardigan Trend

I thinks Mrs. O done started somethin'.... I am in the office and literally every other female in here has on a cardigan from short ones to long ones.


Two weeks ago my daughter asked me to pick up a few cardigans from the Loft and luckily they were on sale. Since then she has been crooning how much she likes them. As an after thought, I then went to the attic and pull out several that I had, and to my surprise, I was able to hand over quite a few of them to her. Of course, we had to do some shrinkage by washing them and daringly placing them in the dryer.

Here she is sporting one of them and calls this look her Mrs. O moment w/a Twist...lol


My daughter proceeded to tell me why cardigans are the bomb-diggidy (thinking to self: ummm... didn't I just give you a dozen of them...). She continues on with it's a great way to put a lil ump in her wardrobe and being able to escape the blazer/jacket mode and dabble in brite colors and still have that Mrs. O look. Further stating that she likes that she can pair a cardigan with many items in her closet, from tank top with jeans to cardigan over a dress. Finally, ending with you can't go wrong you can dress it up or dress it down making the cardigan the ultimate versatile garment.

Now she wants long ones, and a few printed ones. Ummm yeah... so I need to find some patterns to make her some. Any suggestions?

What is your take on the Cardigan Trend? Do you wear them? Have you made any?

Here is a parting shot of her with the cardigan slung over her shoulder... I forgot to ask her when I took this pic is this another Mrs. O moment with a twist...haha

I didn't realize the cardigan is a trend. I'm in style without even knowing it! I love twin sets and what else is a twin set other than a cardigan with a matching tank?? I'm working on a pencil skirt right now that I will be able to wear with two twin sets I already have. I've purchased several different pieces of fabric to make dresses with but I can't bring myself to sew them because I think dresses are so limiting where a twin set can be worn with skirts or slacks and interchanged with contast pieces as well. Cardigans rock!

Cute!! It must be mild temps wherever you live because I would be taking it off throwing it in a ditch in the heat here.

Cute. The cardigans are much lighter than the jackets. I'm surprised she's not wearing one of her 25 pairs of flip flops. :) She might start another trend if she did.

Lovely model and outfits! Trend or not, I have worn cardigans these past several years, (that is for the few months that weather permits over here)...
I would have to look at Mrs. O fashion for the all the latest trend ;)

Hi Ladies and Thanks for your responses.

@Tanya: Yes my daughter crocheted the skirts and Thanks.

@ C-ing: Her day starts off with 4" or 5" heels and at some point she swaps out the heels for her flip flops...lol

Ok, you know I was singing along with your blog. I see the little cardigans everywhere too. Very cute!

Yep! I've been wearing them since my Eileen Fisher, the queen of cardigans days (**cough**1999). My DH said I look like Maude in them. HA!

You could always get a t-shirt from the thrift store, cut the front in 1/2 and sew a zipper in there. I have been doing that all summer and folks seem to like it.

Peace
