We still have a few weeks of winter left (even though my heart wants springtime like nothing else). So how about a hefty dose of outfit ideas to get us through these last few weeks? Who knows, maybe you’ll catch a new energy for your winter clothes!
Today, we’ll look at five ways I’ve styled my long cardigan over the fall and winter.
I wasn’t a cardigan girl for the longest time — no idea why. But I sure am now!
A soft, cozy layer that I can throw into my tote and grab for instant warmth? I’m in! For me, it’s all about finding a cardigan with good weight and drape.
In this post, I’m wearing this long cardigan from Nordstrom. It’s quickly become a staple in my closet. I like that it’s a light, linen blend so it’s portable and works all year round. However, I’ve also had this cardigan from Cuyana on my wishlist for over a year. It’s a beauty in warm cashmere plus it’s made responsibly.
Let’s get into it:
WITH A SWEATER VEST AND MOM JEANS
ON TOP OF OVERALLS
Here’s something to try: play with layers on top of overalls. A cozy cocoon sweater, a wool coat, or, like I’m wearing here, a long cardigan. Top layers partially hide the overalls, giving them a different vibe. (Full outfit details here.)
WITH A SHORT DRESS AND FLAT BOOTS
Got a sweater dress that’s a little too short on it’s own? Pair it with a longer cardigan for a little extra length (and some cool hemline contrast). Finish the look with unfussy flat boots. (Full outfit details here.)
OVER A PLAIN TEE AND SKINNY JEANS
This outfit recipe is easy, put-together, and it works for errands and dinner out. Do a tuck in the front, add a tote and a dainty necklace and you’re all set! Put it on your list for those days you’re not sure what to wear — it’s always a winner. (Full outfit details here.)
WITH CLOGS AND MOM JEANS
Still getting used to your mom jeans? Pair them with a long cardi and clogs. The cardigan almost disguises the fact that you’re wearing mom jeans — giving you time to wear them all over town and get used to them with a nice little safety net. (Full outfit details here.)
And that’s that!
So tell me, did you find any ideas you want to try? How have you been wearing your cardigan lately? Got any outfit recipes to share?
Oh! And … Happy Valentine’s Day! :)
