There are many reasons to love the long cardigan. They’re warm and cozy, so you’ll want to live in them all winter. They’re a great way to deal with a sleeveless top, which I know many of you aren’t big on because you prefer to cover your arms. They give an outfit more presence. They are not as commanding as a jacket, but since they are semi-structured, they do give you some power, albeit in a gentler way. If you steer clear of long cardigans because, in your mind, an oversize knit = ten pounds heavier, then know this: there’s are ways to wear a long cardigan that can actually be very slimming.
The long knits are perfect for those ladies who are in love with cozy layers, so if you are in with knits then go for these boho-chic styles. Remember the time when cardigans had waist lengths, but nowadays they look differently. The length plays one of the major roles, as it gives you a more individual look, keeping you more sophisticated and creative. Slim, straight leg jeans are fine, but the easiest and chicest look is to wear skinny jeans. A long cardigan over skinny jeans is slimming and modern. Leggings, are also an excellent choice and very slimming with a long, sweeping cardigan. And if you want to look edgy, make them faux leather leggings.
By wearing one dark color top to bottom, including your booties, and layering a plain or print cardigan on top in a lighter or brighter color, you create a color illusion that makes your body look long and lean. Flat riding boots or mules look fantastic with skinny jeans and a long cardigan, but if you are concerned that a flat heel will make you look short and stumpy, try an ankle bootie with a heel. It doesn’t have to be sky-high. This might be the best layering piece that will easily make you stand out from the crowd. If you want to keep your wardrobe updated, then you should take a look through my favorite outfit ideas featuring long cardigans.
