I adore this store not only because of its unique selection of clothing and accessories, but also for its oh-so chic and thrifty atmosphere. While difficult to choose just one item from Francesca’s, I immediately fell in love with this cardigan and its adorably dainty bows. A perfect piece to add a special touch to your everyday outfit and light enough to carry around for cool summer nights. Francesca’s Sorbet Cardi is available
This month’s three way features a draped cardigan (the laid back “stepchild” of the classic cut cardigan). Easy to mesh with a variety of styles and available in a ton of colors, the draped cardigan is an affordable Fall/Winter must have. Wear it in place of a blazer to the office; throw over a LBD on chilly nights; or simply match it with a pair of jeans and a tee for casual day on the go. Tip: For a more “pulled together” look, try a belt over the cardigan.
Cardigan’s: a must-have in every girls closet. It’s the perfect transitional piece and can be dressed up or down with everything from shorts, jeans, skirts to dresses. Check out some of my favorites below!
Rihanna’s definitely got the rocker chic look down. Loving the maxi dress and rugged boot combo along with the feminine cardigan. The second outfit is simply fierce and sexy! Best of all, both outfits can easily be worn through the Fall. Get Rihanna’s looks for less!

I love Natalie Portman’s style and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with any of the pieces. But the ensemble as a whole makes her look frumpy. I put together an outfit that stays true to her look but incorporates pieces that add some spunk and sex appeal. Hope you like it! What do you think of Natalie’s look?
I like Reese Witherspoon’s laid back look but I think it’s way too busy. Take, for example, the blue dress against the gray cardigan – it’s just confusing and looks like she threw on any old sweater she could find. And then there’s the fringed sandals that I think make her legs look shorter than they actually are. For the Celebrity Redo, I swapped out her blue dress and added a chic white dress with pockets which really pops against the gray cardigan (LOVE me a dress with pockets!). I kept the fedora but switched out the fringed sandals for jeweled one’s. Best of all this entire redo is under $100!
Rachel Bilson’s outfit just exudes fun! Better yet, each piece can be utilized in completely different styles and looks. The cardigan can be worn with slacks, skirts or even shorts for a more casual preppy look. For a more sassy vibe, pair the gray boots with a pencil skirt. And what better way to add a pop of color to an outfit than a green bag! I’m really big on making the most of every piece in my closet, and this look is sooo interchangeable I had to include it. Get Bilson’s quirky look for less.
Gwen Stefani is the perfect example of how a mom on the run can be comfy and still have tons of style! Get the look for less……….
