I recently purchased a cardigan with matching cardigan shell from J Crew Factory and I love the look. It reminds me of an “old school preppy” style that you’d see a polished lady from the 1960’s wear. I love how J Crew & J Crew factory have been offering more of these matching cardigan/shell styles in the past few years as a resurgence of the timeless attire.
The monochromatic look of having the shell and cardigan match is very stylish and lady-like. I styled it with simple pearls and a scarf tied around my handbag to make the outfit look even more refined.
As you can see from these vintage photos above, it’s a classic item that will never go out of style. I love how Jack O (middle left) wears a patterned cardigan and shell.
How great are these styles from J Crew / J Crew Factory? After buying the red cardigan & shell, I’m tempted to get a patterned version of the style! Check them out here.
What do you think of the cardigan / shell look?
