I’m trying to decide whether this traditional style of cardigan deserves a place in my wardrobe, so I’ve started asking myself how I feel if something doesn’t feel right, and when I put on this one I felt too prim and proper. I added the opposite with faded and frayed jeans, a snakeskin pattern silky sleeveless top with a bit of black bralette peaking out, silver sandals, gunmetal and silver chain jewelry, leather cuff bracelet and a nylon backpack or pale lavender crossbody. Hopefully, these things add some casual edge and subtle allure.

I like the cropped length, and originally thought I would wear it with dresses and skirts, but now I think it would be too traditional and feminine. Am I seeing things, or does the V look better with it than the scoop neck in the last photo? What do you think about this cardigan style for my gritty glamour style approach and what would you pair with it?
