For those who are somewhat afraid of patterns, a good way to dip your toe into the world of non-solids is to buy yourself a polka-dot cardigan. That way you can take it off quickly if it all feels just a bit too much, and you don’t have to commit to anything. Plus, polka dots are staples in people-who mostly-wear-all-black’s closets. This festive cardigan (that’s also available in black) from Lord & Taylor looks like a Comme des Garcons cardigan from far away, and we know first hand that L&T makes good sweater. And right now it’s on sale $25.
