My closet no longer brims with prints, but I was pretty pleased when I realized these two geometrics would work together. I thrifted this scarf in San Francisco at least five years ago, and it has made it through dozens of wardrobe cullings for a reason: It’s a classic. The cardigan is a new addition and I adore it. You can’t see them terribly well but the forearms have faux leather patches – such a great finishing touch! READ MORE
