It’s finally warm/cool enough to wear my new James Perse long cardigan. Yay! 🙂
I took my “normal” James Perse size 2 in this, and although it won’t close without pulling on my hips, it’s the right size for me (I would never close it anyway…). I’ve always been afraid of long cardigans because they can easily be overwhelming on my short frame, but this one hits nicely right below my knees (my inseam is about 26″ – if your legs are longer than mine, it should hit an inch or two above your knees) and is a more narrow than oversized cut, so it works well on me, I think.
So far, I’ve only worn it like this, with jeans and a t-shirt, but I tried it on with several other things, including a fitted James Perse t-shirt dress and long maxi dresses, and will definitely wear it with those items as well. This cardigan looks better with slimmer cut dresses/skirts than fuller ones, and on me, I prefer it with long dresses/skirts over knee-length ones. But if you have longer/slimmer legs, I think this would be very nice with a knee-length or slightly shorter pencil skirt, or even with denim shorts.
More long cardigans for spring:
What do you think about the long cardigan “trend” of late? Will you wear one?
