I like Franca Sozzani style. The light periwinkle blouse and the dark green skirt : fantastic ! As for the shoulder cardigan, I’ve often worn it that way especially in movie theaters.
What I’m going to try is the necklace over the blouse, very chic.
Over the shoulder cardigans; not just for grandma anymore ! These looks are lovely. The woman in the green skirt and purple blouse is so stylish and has such a warm smile. The braid in the second photo is very chic. The cardigans elevate the denim outfits in the bottom rows. Looking at these brightened my evening.
Oh, this trend reminds me of my childhood. the nuns in my school would wear their grey cardigans over their habits. Since then, it’s a bit like Pavlov… everytime I see someone with a cardigan over their shoulders, I stop biting my nails, I behave and I stop running in the hallways ;-)
I grew up all of my life seeing my mother and grandmother wearing their cardigans and blazers on their shoulders…I guess because it is a very European thing and everyone did it. I also remember how I “would never” wear it like that because it seemed to me that it was a thing “old ladies did”. As I grew older, I began to appreciate how effortlessly chic it looked, and how practical it could be, so I began to wear them like that too. I now find it funny that it is perceived as “a trend”!
I love this look too, but it destroys my sangfroid constantly thinking it’s about to slip off….maybe that’s why we associate it with older, more experienced women from our pasts.
As children of the seventies we learned to cast off these so-called pretensions, but that meant we also missed the lesson about discipline creating calm.
