3. Embossed knitted chunky wool cardigan

Exit the big wool sweater that pills with the jersey has-been pattern. This season, the woolen jumper is becoming more feminine as an elegant cardigan with a raised knit forming a sober geometric pattern, somewhere between classic and ethnic. Its trendy oversized cut gives you a casual chic style and keeps your warmth in style.

Its clear, refined and minimalist color flatters all skin tones. At home in cocooning or sexy mode, or as a casual chic daytime outfit, this wool cardigan will light up thanks to golden jewels and accessories in the same natural tones such as white, beige, camel, cognac.

4. Blouse with lace ruffles

Light, airy, structured, simple and sophisticated at the same time, the blouse with a wide lace collar is a must have this season. When the retro is modernized, the lace blouse adopts fluid and pleasant to wear materials with a refined Swiss dot pattern.

Ideal for spring, this blouse with a wide ruffled collar, sleeves tightened like a shirt can be worn in office attire or in casual chic attire.

Its large collar that covers the shoulders is ideal for women with an A body type to balance their slender shoulders against the wider hips. Morpho X and 8 can also grab it. On the other hand, it is better to avoid accentuating your build if your pelvis is narrow (for women with V morphology).

Having trouble identifying your body type? Here is a body shape guide that should help.

5. 2 in 1 Layered Vest

The fine cardigan is a must in autumn winter. Light and elegant, it allows you to wear short sleeves, long sleeves and even tank tops and camisoles underneath depending on the temperatures and the place neither seen nor known.

But let's be honest: there is always a shoulder that falls on the arm, the collar or the sleeves that shift, unsightly folds, a flap that opens too much, gets caught in the handbag, the shoulder seam that slides forward and gives us a slouched side... in short: not great at all!

On the other hand, a top vest and superimposed top 2 in 1: we validate ++++! Contrasting colors for controlled layering, wool to keep the heat in while letting the skin breathe, real little buttons that open and close to deepen the neckline or completely close the cardigan: this cardigan is an absolute must have , very easy to wear and super elegant.
