Different Ways to Wear a Cardigan

Cardigans

Cardigans are so versatile! I can’t begin to recall all the cardigans I have, yet I get so much use out of each one. They can be worn with shorts and a tank or trousers and a blouse for work. Not only can cardigans be worn with any outfit, for any event, they can be styled in a multitude of ways. Read on to see all the different ways to wear a classic cardigan.

Classic

Sometimes the best way is the original way.

Wearing a cardigan like this is a great way to show off a really nice blouse or tank.

Fully Buttoned

Wear a cardigan fully buttoned for a very conservative, professional look.

Reversed

Really mix things up with this backwards style! Simply button the cardigan and slip over your head…backwards!

Wearing a cardigan reversed creates a blank canvas in the from to accessorize with, yet the back is interesting with the buttons!

Preppy

Not sure if you will need the extra layer? Forget tying a cardigan around your waist. Add some prep to your look by tying the cardigan’s sleeves around your shoulders.

The preppy look is stylish and a convenient way to carry an extra layer with you just incase it’s chillier than you expect.

Long and Flowy

I love long cardigans. They pair so well with leggings and dresses for a sleek look.

Long cardigans are generally warmer, which is a bonus. Long cardigans are a fantastic way to add great color and pattern to a rather neutral outfit, like the all black one I am wearing.

Layered & Open

Cardigans layer well. Layering is one of the best ways to add interest and style to an outfit.

Layer a patterned shirt under a cardigan and leave it unbuttoned. Be sure to roll up the cardigan’s sleeves and allow the shirt cuff’s underneath to peak through.
