I’ve been summoned to jury duty today, but have queued up some posts about layering chunky cardigans under bold tweeds. I think that contrary to what some might believe, and counter to what feels intuitive, a shawl collar cardigan can look quite nice underneath a bold and heavy tweed sport coat. Though it’s oddly in the 70s-80s around here this week, I’m looking forward to wearing layers like this as soon as the mercury dips.

I think pairing dark rinse or raw denim with more English ‘country’-inspired looks up top is a nice way to look both dressed-up and casual simultaneously. Here’s a couple of detail shots from this future outfit. More pics to come of the full look with tweed jacket.
