8 Brand-New Ways to Rock a Cardigan
This easy style of knit is making its way back into sweater drawers everywhere, and we’re loving all the modern takes. Here are eight fresh and fabulous ways to channel your inner Cher Horowitz (not your inner grandma) and rock a cardigan like a pro this winter.
Belt One Over a Dress
Here’s an example of how adding a third piece to any outfit can instantly make you look more fashionable. A cardigan and dress alone will certainly keep you warm, but layering a belt over both makes the final look much more interesting (and waist-defining).
Wear it as a Top
We particularly love this trick for when we’re bored with our other blouses. Button it up all the way or leave just a couple undone, and suddenly you have a whole host of new shirts to play with.
Button It Like a Cape
Cape-ing, verb: To drape a jacket or sweater over your shoulders instead of slipping your arms through the sleeves. It’s a great trick for hanging onto your jacket while looking chic and nonchalant. Fastening the top button of a sweater has the same stylish effect without the worry of it slipping.
Try a Maxi-Length
This super-cozy style not only lets you feel like you’re sporting your favorite cashmere robe all day, it’s also a cool alternative to a light jacket while the weather has yet to reach truly cold temperatures.
Or Sport Your Long Cardi as a Dress
No need to go shopping for a trendy new sweater dress. Simply button and tie your favorite maxi cardigan and wear it as a dress in its own right, just like Coterie member Monroe Steele. Tip: Go up a size to help with any pulling around the buttons.
Wear a Matching Set
A sweater and skirt combo feels much more fresh and contemporary than the shell-and-cardigan sets of yore.
