The modern cardigan offers endless styling possibilities, which is why, here at White + Warren, we can’t get enough of it. Our latest iterations, including the shrug (aka bolero), will take you from morning errands to evening dinners—but their true appeal lies in their ability to make them your own. Whether you’re in need of some daytime polish or want a few tips on how to wear them, let these outfit equations serve as a point of inspiration.
Some of the best sartorial moments are inspired by unexpected pairings. If you haven’t embraced it already, you’ll want to wear the Cashmere Shrug on off-duty days. We love how it gives any look a chic effect, especially sporty basics. Not to mention the flattering cut makes this shrug an easy pull-on layer to wear with a tank top, jogger pants and sneakers on cool mornings.
The cardigan is our all-season layering staple for one simple reason: it can make an otherwise casual outfit feel more dressed up. Utility pants always look effortlessly cool, but even more so when styled with our Silk Cashmere Button Cardigan in a sandy hue. Accessorize with sunglasses, a textured raffia tote and colorful bracelets to channel a free-spirited summer mood.
Now that temperatures are finally on the rise, we’re readily fine-tuning our spring-to-summer uniforms. Together with a tank top and jeans, our Cashmere Shrug adds warmth that’s just right for the transitional months (or those high-functioning AC units). Play around with your outfit equation by mixing in denim shorts, skirts, and shoes, but always with the Cashmere Shrug as the recurring star.
At a time when home- and hybrid-working patterns remain the norm, so too does the blurring of off- and on-duty dressing. Here lies the beauty of this look: the easy-to-wear Silk Cashmere Button Cardigan is a hard-working hero buy that can be dressed up with tailored pants and heels. There’s also the added option of styling it with a patterned silk scarf for a burst of color and pattern.
This look combines two elements of great style: tonality and texture. The Cashmere Shrug in Jute Heather is the ideal addition to a minimal outfit that’s grounded in neutral hues. To recreate this ensemble, style yours with a long dress and layered jewelry for easy elegance that works day or night.
Don’t forget our Silk Cashmere Button Cardigan in classic Black, too: we love this key piece, which can be tucked into a high-waisted leather skirt, and pairs well with kitten heels and a tote bag for matching vibes. This is a combination that will serve you well for meetings and interviews, where smart silhouettes and luxe fabrics are a sure-fire recipe for comfort and confidence.
