How unusual. I wonder what it looks like from the front. I always had this idea that this is how angels would have to wear cardigans, as their wings would need to move freely. Random thought, I know, but still…
although I love the colors in this, I'm not a fan of the whole reversing the cardigan thing. It just seems too… intentional? easy? I'm not sure how to say it. But I would have LOVED it if she had removed the buttons and stitched the lower back part together. Love the fun positioning of the pockets too.
I'm all for wearing things backwards if it looks great, but, although i love the cardigan and the color mix between the deep wine and yellow, im not sure this is something I would do. If you've got the confidence to rock it, awesome! Otherwise, it might look a bit awkward….
It's not anything new, I think everyone has done this once or twice in their life (you know, when it's cold somewhere and you wear your sweater/cardigan/coat on backwards to keep your chest warm) but I have to admit she's pretty brave for closing the buttons and going outside with it. It's pretty forward, going backwards like that.
I've worn lots of shorter crewneck cardies backward. but never thought of doing that with a longer sweater. Don't think it would work for most people, myself included, but on her it works. There's even something oddly sexy about this look. Love it when you surprise me with something I'd never considered before, Sart!
I like everything, she looks interesting, but… why reversed cardigan? I simply find it… you know, you do it 'cause you want to be noticed, in fact she did it successfully, but I don't find it so special by itself. But maybe I'm wrong…
Someone is looking for attention. Great dress. Great cardigan. However, if she wore it properly, she might look decent. This is just silly. Call it avant-garde if you will; I will call it aesthetically displeasing.
The front could be balanced out with a thick, long necklace, something that you wouldn't usually be able to wear with that busy dress pattern. You'd have to remove the tags at the neck, of course. I love the loose, warm feel of the whole outfit.
¬ŅAre all of you saying that you have never put on a cardigan backwards, or heve never seen someone doing it? My friends and I in Barcelona dit it sometimes, back in the nineties, till our teachers, mothers and grandmas ceased to be shocked. Then it lost its punch. And yes, the front was livened with long necklaces.
I don't know… cute shoes though, that's for sure. But the cardigan… at first it catches your attention but at the closer look… looks really uncomfortable..! And I could reeally do without the elbow of the cardi sticking out from the side of her arm… Not going to say its a total eyesore, but… not working for me. As always, love the blog though! You do know how to catch them fashionistas! :) Thanx sart!
Ok, for all those asking: when you wear a cardie backwards, you just button it up BEFORE putting it on. Then you wear it like any other good old sweater! Easy! And BTW, the front normally has to be beautiful. I just don't know about this particular one, because is longer than the ones I wear…
i'm surprised so many people haven't actually seen a cardie worn backwards. In Europe it's been around for 5-6 years. It is a very popular look among people with a creative sense of style. It works even better with wrap cardies. I once wore a long – and otherwise awfully boring – cardi backwards, as a dress, with high heels. It was a huuuuge success!!!!
When I saw this all I could do is laugh! I haven't seen someone wear their cardi backwards in years! It was very popular over here amongst trendy teens over here in the UK about 5 years ago. Very Hoxton heroine of her but original? Not by a longshot!
