Sidewalk Style: Cardigan Cute

Our subject this week wears a key spring trend: the long cardigan.

Narae Choi, 22
Student, Johns Hopkins University

What she’s wearing: A Banana Republic cardigan with Guess capris, Poetic License flats, and a Longchamp bag.

How would you describe your style?
“Easy classic. I don’t really want to look too dressed up or too dressed down. But I like to look put together. I like to wear cardigans and pencil skirts, and I wear a lot of black and white, usually with a point of color.”

What’s on your summer wish list?
“I’m looking for a scarf. I get really cold inside where there’s air conditioning. I’m also looking for black gladiator flats. I really can’t wear heels.”

What have you been wearing your cardigan with?
“It looks great with a white dress I have. It adds a nice punch.”

Do you like Michelle Obama’s style?
“It’s approachable. Not something we’ve seen before from a First Lady.”

Rachel says:
Thanks to Michelle Obama—who has worn them everywhere from a local soup kitchen to a meeting with Queen Elizabeth—cardigans have become key pieces for spring. The shape is a bit longer and not at all boxy and a great replacement for jackets at the office. Try one in a bright yellow to add punch to neutrals such as white, tan, and pale gray.
