Staples: Colored Cardigans

21 May

They say that if the shoe fits you should buy it in every color, right? Well, the same goes for cardigans in my book. Colored cardigans are a fun, economical way to jazz up your basic work pieces.

Colorful cardigans are magical:

  • They make it possible for you to wear the same basic black pencil skirt to work twice in the same week and not have even one person notice.
  • Cardigans let you take advantage of seasonal trends, like a wave of pastel colors, or a rise in popularity of long and flowy styles, at an economical price.
  • They come in an infinite range of styles from geeky chic to sleek sophisticate — I’m sure you can find one that compliments your personal style.
  • They’re practical: I don’t know about your office, but the temperature in mine fluctuates more than a college sorority girl’s  weight.
  • And they can fit any budget. In the collage I put together above, prices range from $20 to $400.

Pump up your cardigan collection today! If you find something great (or spot a coworker wearing a fabulous cardi), send us a picture at officepretty [at] and we’ll post it.

In closing, let’s all take a moment to honor my favorite cardigan-wearing TV character, Emma Pillsbury on Glee. That girl can rock a cardi!
