About once a season I make some clothing purchase that winds up being my ace-in-the-hole. I introduce to you: this patterned open front cardigan. I was immediately drawn to the cozy length and plush fabric. I did wonder about the versatility of such a strong, aztec pattern, but it turned out to be one of the most functional pieces I’ve added to my sweater collection. Whether layered under a walking coat or worn on its own in warmer weather, I’ve found endless excuses to never let it leave my side.

And speaking of pieces I never knew I’d wear so much, my Wyatt leather leggings have lived to see another year. Every time I slip them on there’s a split second where I’m mentally “Rebel Sandy” from Grease. But once that moment passes, I feel right at home in the paneled sides and flattering waist (really, it’s possible in leather). So for a mid-week look that goes from office to evening out, I’ve taken this twist on modern suiting for an edgy approach.
