Women’s Style: Cozy Cardigans

Hello πŸ·πŸŒΈπŸ’–

Hope you’re having a lovely day πŸ™‚β˜€οΈ

I have a lot of cardigans –Β in all shapes, sizes, colors, and prints – in my closet. I find them extremely versatile – as an extra layer to keep me warm or as an accessory to pep up an outfit or simply asΒ a cover-up to hide any bulges πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ However, I have avoided wearing one popular style – the longline cardigan – for fear thatΒ it could make me look squat, wide, or just dowdy 😬

As the weather gets colder, longline cardigans are back on the scene and are just so cozy and comfortable that I have to try them out.

Here are eight longline cardigan (with jeans) outfitsΒ to take inspiration from this fall/ winter πŸ‚β„οΈ

Outfit 1

Style Tip: While colors and patterns are great,Β choosing a neutral cardigan will allow you more wear and versatility. Β Grey, cream, and blush are great cardigan colors to start with when building your wardrobe.

Outfit 2

Style Tip: If you’re worried a long cardigan is going to overwhelm you, roll your jeans up so your ankles peek out. Wear a cardigan that is just slightly fitted around the arms and waistline to avoid looking too bulky.

Outfit 3

Style Tip: Sneakers look fine with long, oversized cardigans! Wear shorter jeans or cuff your jeans to show that flash of skin and keep the look from being too baggy.Β

Outfit 4

Style Tip: If you want to experiment with matching patterns while layering, the stripes on stripes look is a great starting point. And yes, stripes are not only for summer.

Outfit 5

Style Tip: Choose fitted bottoms, like skinnies or leggings with a chunky, slouchy cardigan to streamline the silhouette of your outfit. If you’re petite, throw on a pair of heels.

Outfit 6

Style Tip: Layer your cardigan over a button down, cuffing the sleeves of the shirt over the sleeves of your cardigan for a preppy vibe. Half tuck the shirt for shape. Tucking your jeans into your boots will also visually lengthen your legs.

Outfit 7

Style Tip: You can actually pep up an outfit with the addition of a splash of color.When wearing a patterned, colorful cardigan, keep the under layer simple. A white tee keeps the focus on your sweater.

Outfit 8

Style Tip: Duster (or maxi) cardigans provide an illusion of elongation. Choose a length that hits slightly below your knees. Make a monochromatic statement by layering different shades of the same color.

Longline cardigans allow you to play with proportions, add an edgy spin to your outfit and help to achieve that β€œoff-duty model” vibe.
