Two Ways To Wear Jeanswest Waterfall Drape Cardigan in Navy

I bought some new cardigans recently to celebrate the cooler weather in Brisbane! You might have seen in Monday's office wear post how to wear them in the office, but today I'm picking the navy one and showing you two different ways to wear it.

This is the new season Jeanswest waterfall drape cardigan, which has two buttons on the top and button holes in the hem. It means you can button up one side as an impromptu breastfeeding cover, or you can button up both hems and wear it like a cowl neck knit.

While it's winter now, it was still a mild autumn when I wore this cardigan for the first time, so I'm wearing it with shorts in both outfits.

What I wore:

NecklaceRoie Designs pearl and antique gold long necklace
Tank: thrifted Cotton On yellow tank
ShortsJeanswest 'Scarlette' printed shorts
ShoesAsos leather Chelsea boots in tan
BagBalenciaga truffle brown RH classic day bag

Why I wore it:

I was so eager to squeeze in another wear of these shorts, in my effort to hit 30 wears on them before the summer weather really ended. With the ankle boots and long cardigan, they were just warm enough for the last of our summer heat before autumn truly set in. The blue shorts were an obvious choice to wear with the navy cardigan as I love wearing these shorts with navy pieces to create monochrome outfits.

The mustard cardigan is something I've worn frequently with these shorts too, I really like yellow and blue together. A nice cheerful and colourful outfit, yet still practical for working from home and doing the daycare drop off / pick up.

Why I wore it:

There was a little more rushing around when I wore this outfit. We had some errands to run and a doctor's appointment in the morning. I thought the cardigan buttoned up and worn like a tank would be perfect with shorts, as it was quite a sunny day. It was also rather windy though, so I did regret choosing shorts when walking between stores and giving Cooper his afternoon walk when the wind picked up.

The magenta Balenciaga Day bag is my favourite part of this outfit - it really pops with the navy cardigan. If it had been a less windy day, I would have liked this outfit more I'm sure. It was still warm in the sun, so jeans would have been too much with the cardigan buttoned up like this though. Not a bad outfit, just not the best for the weather that day!

How You Can Wear It:


During those in-between seasons where it's not too hot or not too cold, a cardigan can be a good option with some shorts! A neutral navy cardigan like this will go with so much too. While this has buttons to take the hems up, you could easily replicate the second outfit with a waterfall drape cardigan you own and a brooch or pin.

  3. Hi Mica, I am enjoying your selection of cardigans. You styled it beautifully and I absolutely adore how it buttons up to create a different chic on the go look! Thanks for the inspiration always!

    I'm off to workout then get some pool time in. I pray that you have a beautiful day.

  4. Shorts with ankle boots is one of my favorite transition weather combos...although we only get about 5 days per year where that combo makes sense here! But I definitely use it when I can! I also love the navy cardigan with the magenta bag - gorgeous color combo!

  5. Off topic, but the blue and yellow combo is what the mail men in Germany are dressed like. Though not with a cardigan, obviously.

  7. Hi Mica
    You can always diversify your style in such a subtle and elegant way.
    I like seeing the bag more in pink, I am more by the vibrant colors.
    And I really like those asymmetrical cardigans and it seems that you love them a lot!!!

  28. Dear Mica, your new cardigan is so versatile and I like both looks with your new purchase. What a pity that the shorts were not warm enough on the day you wore the second look. And I like the pop of pink in the second look like you do!

  29. That's a great cardigan, I love all things cardigan and all things navy so it's right up my alley. The one trouble I have with waterfall cardigans is getting a cold stomach so this one solves that problem too! I'll be heading to my nearest Jeanswest asap. This may solve some of my winter problems... Thanks for the tip!
