A cardigan is an essential piece in every woman’s wardrobe, but it can look old-fashioned if we’re not careful. Our fashion editor is here to change your mind about this underestimated knitted garment to make it look more glamorous and chic.
Take a look at three stylish ways to wear the cardigan and you might find yourself taking yours out from the back of your closet…
Cool and Collected
Layer a chic cardigan over a t-shirt and a pair of pleather leggings or ripped jeans. Dress it up with stiletto heels or go for a relaxed look with flat mules. A printed tee will score you more points!
Top tip: Make sure to keep your cardigan’s buttons undone.
Pop of Colour
If you have a bright cardigan or one with added detail like pretty buttons or frill sleeves, layer it under a jacket and let the details peek through.
Top tip: It’s best to keep your cardi at a shorter length for this look.
Make a Statement
Style a chic cardigan a little differently – open a few buttons at the top and make it an off-shoulder style. Pair it with a pleated skirt, statement belt and chunky sneakers.
