Wear your cardigans

Cardigans should be a staple in every women’s closet but not all of us know how to wear them. Just follow these few rules and your will be on your way!

Cardigans are a fun way to spice up your outfit for the day, not to mention they are a great chic way to layer. First, pull out the cardigan and grab some of your favorite outfits for work and play. Now start mixing and matching.


For your work you can layer over a blouse and trousers. If the trousers are a wide leg, you want stick with a shorter cardigan. If the pants are lower and slim around the waist you can wear a longer cardigan and then belt it at the waist if you like. This will expand your closet by 3-5 outfits immediately.

What about for play here’s the another tips for you… pulling a cardigan over a simple dress will add a little “flavor” to the outfit. You can also pair it with jeans and a casual shirt for a more bohemian look. Don’t forget to add jewelry or pin a brooch on the sweater for an old-fashioned look. Really the ideas are endless just try.

A couple of tricks to really look fun. If you have a great blouse with an interesting front or sleeves, use a short sleeve cardigan over it so you don’t miss out on the decor of the top. Same goes for pants, if the top is unique, don’t cover it up, use the cardigan as a border (it should stop right above the pant so you really emphasize the waistband).

There are a couple of ways to wear cardigans. First, you can button just the top three buttons; the eye will follow this line, which looks great on a woman. Second, you can wear it over a slim fitting shirt and button it all the way, belt it or not (two different looks), and throw a scarf on or a neat necklace. Third, play with the proportions of the cardigan and the outfit. Find the shape that works with your body first and then work with colors and textures.
