Embellished Insect Cardigan

I really love a sweater with unique details, especially in the form of embellished details. Luckily, around the holidays you start seeing these types of sweaters pop-up everywhere! This unique embellished insect cardigan with beaded scarab beetles was right up my alley. While this sweater was a little on the pricey side, one thing I was really impressed with was the quality of the sweater and the embroidery. Even my husband liked it, despite the price, and he's a pretty tough critic when it comes to many things, my clothing included!

I decided to go for more of a preppy look when styling this sweater. I purchased these blue and white flared pants last year and I actually hadn't yet worn them. (Keep in mind that I spent most of last year on Zoom, so dressy bottoms were non-existent!) I thought these pants were the perfect complement to the navy sweater. With the gold accents in the scarab embroidery, I also decided on some gold loafers and a gold headband to top things off. Like I said, this outfit was a hit with my husband, who likes more classic styles. I like to think that this style is classic, with a quirky and fun twist!
