Not quite the sweater, and not quite the vest. Cardigan is always comfy, cozy and statement-making. You can throw them on over everything from a tank to a simple blouse, and then fit them in easily under a blazer or coat when the weather is chilly. Cardigans are also the ultimate layering piece, see our Style Guide: How to layer clothes?
For winter season the thick oversized cardigans in colors such as dark orange and red are great to spice up your everyday outfit – find them in knitted versions, wool and merino wool. For warmer season, spring or summer, there are sleeveless, light and oversized cardigans – find them in a cotton material which will be great at keeping you in style, but not at all hot.
Here are some styling tips:
– You can wear any sort of bottoms with oversized cardigans. Skinny jeans, straight leg jeans and leggings are the best (see our Style Guide: How to wear leggings?). If your bottoms are bright, combine it with a dark cardigan. If they are a dark color, combine it with a bright oversized cardigan to ensure that you inject color into your outfit (try mint green cardigan, the mint green color is one of the biggest trends for the following spring season).
– In the summer season, you can combine a sleeveless oversized cardigan with a maxi dress.
– In order to avoid losing your feminine silhouette wear a belt over the cardigan in order to have it taper in at the waist.
