This is the cardigan, but the color isn't shown online: I struggle with this issue, especially layering darker colors, too. Let see the goods!
Is that a problem? J Crew cardis were even thinner, and base layer would definitely show. This is the cardigan, but the color isn't shown online: I'm curious to see what others have to say.
I just bought a cream cardi at Ann Taylor loft. Here's an idea for you. I got tons of compliments.. Thanks for posting this question, Marianne. I struggle with this issue, especially layering darker colors, too. I love that cardigan! It stands out with the large buttons.
It doesn't bother me to have black show through a lighter layering piece as long as the black piece doesn't show a short sleeve line under the lighter longer sleeve.
I hope that makes sense. I think a sleeveless shell or long sleeve is ok. I'm picturing your cardi the color of a manila file folder. Would that be close? How does your cardi color look with white? You have me stumped - I am having trouble imagining the color. Especially since BR tends to focus more on cool tones, not warm ones. I haven't been in the store in over 6 weeks, so I haven't seen this one. For example, is it like this Anchorage cream - which I don't think of as cream; it's more like tan or khaki to me: Otherwise, regarding colors showing through,I would suggest maybe you want white underneath, to make the sweater color pop.
Same concept as wearing a white cami under a cream blouse? I like teal, purple, black, dark olive green, and wine with cream. I think different shades of each color look good with different shades of cream. I'll be curious to hear how your BR cardi wears. I have a few BR sweaters that did not fare so well.
Lots of pilling after one wearing. Nicole, I have this sweater in black and cobalt, and have worn both numerous times. I have yet to wash either, although I have dry-el'd them and I have had to use the lint brush on them quite a bit if I wear my puffer, I wind up with white fox fur all over my sweater! I wore both constantly on our trip to Iceland and to Philly, including in the car and on the airplane, with other one packed in suitcase.
I wore the black one to go dancing all night long in Iceland, working up quite a sweat. In my experience, BR's merino wool wears very well. In fact, I have some merino wool sweaters in my closet that I've owned for over a decade and they still look brand new. I don't wear them much anymore, because they are simple, plain, v-neck sweaters and not as much fun as cardigans. But I used to wear them to work all the time over a crisp collared button down. Cashmere and cotton is a different story it's all over the map , but the BR merino wool tends to be a safe bet each year.
I find it is very warm as warm as cashmere but streamlined, so you don't get all the bulk. Of course, I should add that I try very hard to only hand-wash my sweaters once per year if that!
The less washing, the longer they last, in my experience. I dry-el whenever the sweaters start to smell; otherwise, I simply use the lint brush and air them out between wears. They don't get that smelly because I am always wearing a knit or blouse underneath, I never wear perfume, and I don't smoke anymore.
However my older merinos had to put up with my smoking; I would dry-el them after each wear, and they still look as good as new, no pilling. Just to be clear, the color is definitely cream, not yellow not like manila at all. It just has a warmer tinge to it which makes me wonder if I can make it work. It must be their "cocoon" color. I will try taking a picture - I just don't know if it will come through. I am not sure if white would work with it - I thought Angie recommended not mixing cream with white?
Joy, I did try it over a short sleeve black blouse, and that looked odd, so you have a good point about long sleeves. Shiny, I agree about BR merino sweaters. By the way, I saw your other thread - I also got this cardi in black after seeing your pics!
Tanya, if you layer it over a striped shirt, does it actually work if the stripes are white and the sweater is cream? I'll take pictures, since I am still undecided if it's a keeper. I mioght be making it more confusing than it should be. I'm sure you look great in the cardi. I took a few pictures outside, but I'm afraid the colors aren't right.
It looks less yellow on the pics. Anyway, the 2 main issues are: Do you think the fit is OK? I am starting to think I would be better of with a crew neck. Over black short-sleeve shirt oops, wardrobe malfunction: Trying it with a cool color - the t-neck is darker in real life: It's hard for me to make a judgement about the overall fit without a more full body picture.
But it looks like it fits you in the shoulder area and torso nicely. The outstanding question would be whether it works in the outfits altogether. It looks kind of on the shorter side so maybe be better for skirts? Mini Me - Looks for the Family. Now in Select Stores! Looks for the Family. The Cold Outside Shop. Old Navy Logo for the Family.
