i’ve been obsessing over this cricket cardigan from vince for months now, ever since i spied it on the linesheets for fall. i love the overly preppy vibe, and the potential to turn the styling completely on its head. i’d pair it with a plaid trouser for fun, or layer a long tee underneath and accessorize with chunky jewelry or a bold scarf to keep it from being too j.crew circa 1994.
but then, i spied this rugby cardigan over at urban outfitters…for less than $50. look familiar? true, the color is slightly less fabulous, and the styling is definitely less finessed. but the price is almost $200 lower. it begs a very frustrating question: how much love will i really give this fun little cardi?
