What it is: Ruffled trim cardigan, Jacob, $40
How to wear it: No need to get your feathers ruffled, this polished cardigan has plenty of frills to go around. The short sleeves are perfect for summer and the scalloped detailing that runs down the middle is anything but boring. Wear it buttoned up with a pencil skirt, pumps and a cute colour-block tote for an office appropriate outfit or let loose and wear it unbuttoned over a white tank with floral print jeans and a pair of nude ballet flats.
Why I love it: I love layering my clothes and a short sleeve cardigan is a great way to add dimension to your warm-weather look without having to bulk up. This bright cardi is lovely on its own and it would look tres chic layered over a long-sleeve blouse with cropped pants and a pair of quilted flats. I am wearing it now casually with light washed jeans and a cute pair of Keds but can’t wait to layer it with a long silky tunic and skinny jeans when fall hits.
