Versatile Cardigan









I want to address, what I'm dubbing the VBL aka the Visible Bra Line. It's such a pain that certain fabrics "reveal" the bra. Of course there's nothing to be ashamed about acknowledging the fact that half the population wears bras. But, it does distract from the line of the outfit.  But, who is the real culprit, the shirt, or the bra? Maybe a different, t-shirt bra would have been a better choice, but I feel my figure is better served with an underwire bra. If I come across a solution, I'll let you know. Now, onto the rest of the pics!

As you can see I've worn this cardigan three different ways. First, as a wrap-tie sweater, then open and loose, and in the end simply tied in the front. I've had this cardi for YEARS and it's a great example of the type of garment a versatile and dynamic wardrobe needs. It's a fairly straight-forward layering piece with some interesting details, that can be styled for work, weekend, and evening. Here I've worn it as the third piece in this outfit of mixed neutrals, which I really enjoyed wearing. Does it a make a big style splash? No, but this look was sophisticated, comfortable, and I felt good in it.  All outfitting wins in my book!
