Reader Request: The Stylish Twinset

How to wear a twin set

Reader Tricia dropped me an e-mail with this question:

I should admit up front that I have a cardigan obsession. It’s the one thing my eye goes straight for when I shop. I do wear some cardigans alone with different-colored bottoms, but I have a couple of matching twinsets as well. I didn’t realize that was a style no-no! Can you explain why and help me out with mixing and matching some? I have a black twinset (I do wear that cardigan with other things too) as well as a pale blue one and a grassy green one. I just found out that those latter two are of a length to wear with skirts (something else I learned from your blog!) but beyond that, I’m lost. Also, they’re V-neck in both the shell and the cardi. Crew necks look terrible on me.
