1 Dress It down
Cardigans are perfect for an easy, casual look. You can use them to cover up strappy tanks for school or at the office. Match it with a pair of boyfriend jeans and some sneakers. This is an easy, relaxed look that anyone can pull off.
2 Dress It up
Use a simple cardigan to cover a cute dress or add to a flowing skirt. Cardigans are so versatile you can wear them with almost anything. My favorite look is a cute floral dress with a white cardigan and my old cowboy boots.
3 Look Slimmer
One nice thing about cardigans is they help give the appearance of a slimmer figure. A large cozy cardigan is perfect for concealing any lumps and bumps you want to hide. Add a thin belt around your waist under the cardigan for an even slimmer look.
4 Smaller Bust
If you have a small bust, that high button closure works great. It adds a little bulk up there without being too obvious. This is a great look with a simple blouse or tank for at the office.
5 Play with Fabrics
Cardigans can add texture to your outfit. You can opt for a knitted or lace cardigan if you want texture. Jersey and cashmere are great for softness and comfort. What’s your favorite cardigan material?
6 Choose the Right Neckline
V-neck cardigans look best with square or straight necklines underneath. If your cardigan is scoop neck, pair it with a scoop neck top. A curved, straight, or waterfall cardigan works well with most every neckline top.
7 Consider Length
A cropped cardigan looks good with either a slightly longer or much, much longer shirt. On the other hand, a hip length cardigan is best with a top that is shorter than the outside layer. If your cardigan is just a bit shorter than hip length, a shirt that is just a little longer is good.
Now that you have some solid cardigan tips, how will you wear your next cardigan? Leave me a comment describing your favorite cardigan and how you like to wear it.
