Confession: I’ve owned this black waterfall cardigan from Francesca’s Collections for more than five years. It’s one of those items that has grown into a major staple despite the fact that I didn’t have much of an opinion on it at the time of purchase. Now I can’t imagine my closet without it and can only hope it has several more years left before I wear it to pieces. This cardigan is pretty much my MVP: it can be worn just plain open, layers fantastically, is a lifesaver over sleeveless dresses in the winter, and can be tied around the waist in a ton of different ways. In five years it’s been worn and remixed countless times, but these outfits are my favorites.
