Longer cardigans are nice with straight-leg denims or pants, but not with skirts. The greatest cardigan I’ve discovered up to now is the Classic Cardigan from Merona at Target ($19.99 and up). Look for a lightweight wool blend (wool/Lycra is best) in black, charcoal or navy. The minimize of the pants is essential and the length have to be actual. Skip the tight skinny jeans , and get these in darkish blue, with no fading or whiskering.
