Splendid Cocoon Cardigan at Bunky Boutique
Each week Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.
What: This open-knit, cocoon-style cardi from Splendid is perfect for late-fall layering, both over long-sleeve shirts and under heavier coats. It's lightweight, but not paper thin, in a wintery, neutral deep gray (not unlike this classic sweater from Yves Saint Laurent), with a relaxed fit and batwing sleeves (Nasty Gal's all about 'em). Wrap up while the weather takes a cool turn, then tote the sweater throughout spring to ward off its wishy washy whims, and during summer's blasting air conditioning.
Where: Bunky Boutique
Style It: Dressing for cold weather with this sweater requires complementary pieces that will easily fit under and over it, like a warming, lengthy scarf from Acne, on-trend Marc by Marc Jacobs cape, and a chic cashmere top. Choose a bold bag in an animal print as the outfit's flashy focal point, and wear a knotted lariat, like this one from Philippe Audibert Wollaston, for a chic, understated look.
