Cropped Again, Fisherman-Style

Here’s another terrific cropped topper, this time in the form of a cable-knit cardigan. I’m always a fan of sultry spins on classic pieces and this example is no exception. The fitted shape, deep “V” neck and hem that hits at the natural waist conspire to make one sexy little fisherman’s sweater. The traditional neutral color keeps the look subdued and makes for easy combinations with other items. Plus, cardigans are just so functional. Perfect for throwing over a girlish summer dress when braving air-conditioning, I would pair this sweater with dainty floral prints, white eyelet, ribbon accents or similarly innocent, feminine and light-colored pieces. The idea is that the sweater should be the cozy, down-to-earth piece that lends a substantial, masculine touch to an otherwise delicate outfit.
