This time of year we need all the layering pieces we can get and cardigans are no exception. They are a key work wardrobe basic that can be worn with just about anything. We even keep one at the office so that we can still look Workchic when we are chilly. Unfortunately the one we keep on our chair does not usually hold up as long. Before we go any further, take a look at yours and make sure it’s still in professional shape! Now you can also inventory your closet when you get home. We recommend seeing what color cardigans you have and how they mix and match into your wardrobe. Then fill in the blanks. We found some styles to help you get started.
