Wrap me up...


...in summer-to-fall wrap cardigans! Whether you find yourself in a seasonal fashion transition (which is starting soon, sorry dearies) or just want to be prepared for ever-present temperature changes (darn air conditioners!), a flowy, feminine wrap cardigan is the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe staples.

I am a particularly big fan of the longer, slouchier, sans buttons, semi-shawl versions that can add a lovely, elegant je ne sais quoi to dresses or t-shirts while having the capability of becoming a mini-blanket in a pinch. Multi-tasking is what we're all about, right lovelies?

Look for these in a deep jewel color or in a floaty, ethereal pale hue and in whatever fabric tickles your fancy - cashmere, silk or cotton jersey, angora...as long as it looks like you didn't put any effort into your chic self, you're getting it right ;)

I promise that you won't regret throwing this on your body or into your bag for that extra layer of prettiness (and warmth) at a moment's notice.

Check out ShopStyle.com for an amazing array of ideas or my go-to website for handmade and custom styles, Etsy.com.

Some of my faves:

DKNY Luxe Knit Cozy Wrap Cardigan (this is the one you'll be seeing in all the mags)

Econica Organic Cotton/Bamboo Hoodie Wrap

Mossimo Black Long Sleeve Open Wrap Cardigan

Arden B Slub Wrap Cardigan

C&C California Stretch Pima "Agnes" Drape Cardigan

Rachel Pally Knit Wrap Cardigan

So go get wrapped up in something irresistibly cozy yet fabulously free of frumpiness!
