Cardigans are one of those things that every woman has in her closet. They come in all shapes and sizes, colors, and prints. Some cardigans are better for certain body types, and others are better for certain outfits. The most common and classic style of cardigan is the waist-length cardigan. Don’t wear these lengths of cardigans with long tops. The contrast in lengths is not flattering, and creates a weird shape and proportion on your body. You can wear them with fit and flare style dresses, or high waisted skirts. If you have oversized sweater, combine it with your skinniest pair of jeans or leggings. Cardigans can sometimes be shapeless, so change this by adding a belt. A belt cinched in at the waist is great for creating an hourglass silhouette. Choose a skinny belt and wear with a light to medium knit cardigan. Wear it over a pencil skirt for a classic corporate look. A simple way to update your cardigan is to team it with a fashionable scarf. The right scarf can work wonders. Wear a chunky snood for warmth, or add a silky scarf worn open and draped for something more chic. Take a look at the following cardigan outfit ideas and get inspired.
