Polo by Ralph Lauren Geo-Motif Shawl Linen-Blend Cardigan | $998 at GARBARINI | Cherry Creek, 303.333.8686 | garbarinishop.com
ONE OF THE BEST parts of living in Colorado is the luxury to experience every season to its fullest. For seasons like winter and summer, the dress code is more straightforward. However, spring can be more precarious. On one hand, you may very well be skiing the Rocky Mountains, or you might be sitting outside on a charming patio enjoying the nearly 300 days of sunshine we get each year. No matter what this spring brings, here’s your guide to layering pieces that will keep you warm when needed—and look great with any wardrobe.
First up, look no further than to the king of American fashion, Mr. Ralph Lauren. His vibrant knitted shawl-collared cardigan made of up of a rich blend of linen, cotton, and wool is a closet essential. The geometric motif pattern and carefree shape are perfect for a casual day of shopping or Sunday brunch on a patio. Hot tip: Swap out the self-belt for a woven leather belt for a laid-back look or pair with an avant-garde vintage belt for dinner at your favorite neighborhood joint.
