Unsure: Cardigan, Lace Tee, Slacks

Welcome to the second post in the "help me, I'm unsure of this item" series. First of all - thank you all so much for your thoughts on the olive green top. Based on your feedback, I'm going to get rid of it, but add a similar top to my wishlist. A lot of you suggested tailoring it or tucking it in, but based on the quality of the shirt after having it for a few years, I think I'd be better off finding something similar in great condition. So that's what I'll do!

In this post, I've included three things I'm really uncertain about keeping: the lace tee, the cardigan, and the slacks

Here are my concerns: the cardigan color is a bit weird - hard to go with a lot of my outfits. And I feel like the ruffles in front make it look sloppy, rather than adding a nice touch.

The lace tee has a lot of potential, I think. I'm 99% sure I should keep it. But I need style advice. It buttons up the back, is a bit short, and has cap sleeves. Tucked into skirts? Maybe that's the solution...but in that case, I need to try it on and see what I think!

The slacks fit well around the waist and thighs, but have pretty big openings at the bottom. Maybe they should get tailored? What do you guys do with pants that are still in good shape and fit well, but that aren't exactly in style? 

So let me know what you think - should these pieces stay or should they go??

Thanks SO much for your advice! Remember - tomorrow is Third Thursday Threads: Menswear-Inspired Outfits! Link-up will go live at 7am PT!
