I often like to wear this cardigan with a very basic outfit of staple items, where it can be the focal piece. I think polka dots this big need to be your entire statement with any outfit - and done right, what a statement they can be! I often get lots of "Oh my god, that's adorable" comments with this cardigan and have to agree. It's soft, both in color and texture, and is small enough not to overwhelm the top half of me. I just bought this Loft basic scoop neck tee and am loving the light pink color. I rarely wear anything pink for fear that it'll wash out my fair complexion, but this color seemed to work just right and I was pleasantly surprised.
