Dressing with class in a cardigan!

Trends for Less

I can hardly believe the spring semester is coming to a close! It seems like only yesterday I was enjoying my winter break down in the Dominican Republic. The semester has flown by so quickly that I am sure I am not the only one feeling threatened by the impending final exams and final projects. On a brighter note, the thought of finals means the end of school for an entire four months and for seniors, the end of a long-lived college career! Graduation caps are flying and seniors are ready to make an entrance into the real [working] world. Nervous about what to wear on your first day on the job? Want to look professional yet stylish, sophisticated yet comfortable? Ponder no more; the cardigan will be sure to win you over as a classy act in your newfound career.

The ticket to landing your dream job has a lot to do with the initial interview and the impression you make. This not only involves the impressive credentials on your resume but your physical appearance and how you present yourself! No employer wants to hire a potential employee that comes to an interview looking not very put together. The good news is that it doesn't have to take much effort to look the part. Try the cardigan, the classic button up sweater which is sure to win over your heart as well as your boss.

The cardigan is the perfect combination of comfort and class. Cardigans come in a variety of fabrics, allowing you to wear a lighter weight fabric [such as cotton] on those warmer days this season. Heavy fabrics are available for nightly work meetings and affairs, so no worries about being chilly in the office! This classy sweater can be found in a variety of colors and styles, from professional sleek black to a royal red, and I guarantee you can find the hue you are looking for. [I own a primary colored cardigan that I purchased from Forever 21 for $10. It is made up of red, blue and yellow stripes and it is possibly my favorite sweater item in my closet!] Cardigans add a touch of sophistication and never lack comfort. Leave your cardigan unbuttoned with a cute collared shirt underneath or leave a few buttons unbuttoned to expose the cute tank top you can't wait to show off on those warmer days. The possibilities are endless with the cardigan. It is the classy sweater that will take you [as well as your career] anywhere your little heart desires!
