How To Make The Same Outfit Dressy Or Casual - Just Style LA

Beginning of March, I debuted our chic Ivory lightweight long cardigan with black trim. You can see that look HERE. When you first look at this cardigan, you may think it can only be worn for dressier occasions. But that is so not true and as you can see in today’s blog post, it all depends on how you style the cardigan and what accessories you wear with it.

Here is some tips on how I have come up with the two looks:

For the dressy look:

  1. I have tucked in tank top.
  2. I am wearing the neck scarf closer to my neck as a tie for a clean look.
  3. I am wearing heels as my shoes.
  4. I have used my bag with a shorter handle for a more lady like look.
  5. Tied the belt for the cardigan in the front or back.

For the casual look:

  1. I have left the tank top out.
  2. I am wearing the neck scarf loose as a triangle around my neck.
  3. I am wearing flat shoes.
  4. I am wearing the bag on my shoulder or a cross body style.
  5. Took the belt of the cardigan completely off.
VIDEO ALERT: I have also included a short video below of how to style it both ways so you can see it live. I will try to add more of these short videos into my blog stories. Please let me know if you find it helpful.

As for the cardigan details, it is inspired by Chanel knit jackets that have the signature trim and the gold buttons, making them timeless and classic. It is made of a soft and slinky knit in ivory and the body is slim and loose but not oversized.

It is finished in the front, pockets, cuffs, and the bottom with a black trim band. The bottom pockets are functional with two gold buttons, but the top pockets are nonfunctional. They do, however, have the gold buttons as decoration.

It also has a self-belt with two loops on the side. You can easily take the belt off if you don’t like it and even cut off the belt loops. I have shown you how it looks both ways below in the photos. Plus there are some close-up looks for the details.

I have paired the cardigan with our best-selling Ivory rayon modal tank top, which is a staple item for us and we always re-stock it. The material is super soft and buttery, the body is loose and long but not oversized. The straps are wide enough that you can easily wear a bra underneath.

As for accessories I am wearing our multi color leaf print silky neck scarf and gold and black bead small clover earrings.
