yay or nay: backwards cardigan

So interested to hear your thoughts on this one loves. I've seen bloggers and celebrities alike style the 'backwards cardigan' but I've yet to see someone in the flesh with it. I *think* I like it for the most part but haven't found the right way to do it myself. I definitely think belting it is the way to go to add some visual interest to the front.
So how about you? Yay or Nay?

Can't wait to hear what you think!
Hope all the Thanksgiving preparations are going well! I'm attempting my first pie... we'll see how this goes!

I'm on the fence...I think these ladies pull it off beautifully, but if I saw someone in the "real world", I think it would just look like their cardi was on backwards.

I think (around here anyway), people would just look at you funny and MAYBE be polite enough to tell you your sweater was backwards.

I'm on fence too. Depends on how neckline looks in front. I'm all about back button detail though, so this is an easy way to get that look.

My vote is nay. However, now that I've said that in print, I'm sure it will become an even bigger trend and I'll eat my words! Happy Thanksgiving.

I am soooooo out of it that I didn't even know this was the new thing.

Kinda reminds me of 5th grade, when Kris Kross had their one big hit "Jump" and they wore their clothes backwards so that was the cool thing to do.

My vote is nay... but not sure how much my vote should count for seeing as I didn't even know this was a trend. Might indiciate I am officially out of the fashion lop.

looks good from the back, but i bet it looks stupid from the front. the neckline will NOT hit properly if the cardigan is designed to be work w/buttons on the front, and the boobs will look funny, and bet the tag stitching shows through at the top! unless they are specifically made to be worn this way, i think it will look wonky!

Yay! Why not. Let's be open to new styles and designs. It's lovely anyway.

I'm gonna have to go ahead and say YAY! I just wonder if it's comfortable with the tag scratching your chest?!
