j crew jackie cardigan in white

So often in life, the answer you seek is right in front of you. It's a matter of recognizing it, and doing something about it.

Hermmm...that was random. Oh well, this is a blog.

Above is yet another iteration of the J.Crew Jackie cardigan, and, normally, I'd have no intention of buying one in white. Nothing beats a white shirt, but white cardigans tend to be less useful to me.

What caught my eye was the composition of the outfit. Standard wardrobe advice dictates not to combine white with ivory...indeed, a white top/ivory cardigan would not have worked (I've tried it; it looks terrible). Yet, here, the pieces meld harmoniously.

I believe the key to be the olive-green shorts. I should say, I don't wear shorts, unless I'm at the beach or something. I told ya, I dress like a nun. But the color...the warmth of the olive suits the ivory, while olive's neutrality (bright green would not have worked) pleases the white.

Deep chocolate brown would have worked as well, but not as prettily, not for this model. The olive green makes her eyes jump out.

I knew olive green was the answer...mumbles, hides wallet...
