Fall is defined by the coziness and comfort of cardigans. I love wearing cardigans in the Fall, and chances are so does the rest of the world. But, just because cardigans are the synonym for comfort, it doesn’t mean that you have to look frumpy when you were it. There are tons of different cardigan designs out there depending on what your mood is and what is the occasion you are wearing your cardi for. Here is my guide to help you style your cardigan to look glam and put together.
Choose Your Cardi Wisely
Before delving into how to style your cardigan, you have to choose your cardigan design wisely. Oversized cardigans are my absolute fave, but if I want to be able to wear a cardi to a date or at work, I always opt for a cardigan that has the right amount of slouchyness. You want your cardigan to be a little bit fit but also be loose enough to be able to create movement with it for that extra fall comfort. I love this pink cardigan from Chicwish because it fits well around the shoulders, but at the front the extra material makes it feel super cozy.
Wear a Form-fitted Top Underneath
When your cardigan is slouchy, you want to wear a top underneath that is form-fitted and not too lose to balance out the frumpyness of the cardigan. I also tucked in my top to create an even more slender look.
Your cardigan is not boring and neither should your style be. To glam up your cardigan and make the look more sophisticated and very Parisian, add a scarf around your neck. Not much effort here. Simply add a beautiful silk scarf for extra elegance and a sweet feminine touch. I went for a pink and white print to add a bit of depth to the look.
Go For Skinny Jeans
Pair your cardigan with skinny jeans or leggings for a more slender look. Your cardigan is already bigger than your actual size. If you want a more elegant look as oppose to the boho chic style a la Mary- Kate and Ashley, I highly recommend you opt to wear bottoms that are well fitted. You could wear boyfriend jeans, but this will create a more casual look as oppose to a glam one.
Wear Pretty Heels
I love wearing flats but if you want to style your cardigan in an elegant way to go out on a date or at work, I highly recommend wearing heels. I adore the way my bow heels compliment this Chicwish cardigan. It brings the whole look together and makes me look elegant from head to toe.
