Our fourth POW (Piece of the Week) is the cabi Spring 2016 Michelle Cardigan. With this classic and graceful cardigan, we learned about nautical style, new neutrals, analogous color schemes, trying on trends even if we doubt them, flipping how we wear some pieces, and power dressing! In two weeks, we styled this striking cardigan from career to casual to special occasion. While perfect for work, the Michelle Cardigan can easily work for nearly any style situation you have.
Now, let’s review the week!
