I think that long cardigans are a great options with jeans and tops, plus they are really comfy and make us feel “at home”. Sometimes balancing proportions and layering with this look can be hard, but if you know the rules, you can play well! For example pay attention to where your top underneath hits on your body. With a long cardigan, a top that hits closer to your natural waist will elongate your legs and give you a more proportional look.
On those cold days, layers are a must! You can absolutely layer a cardigan under a coat, but make sure the coat is at least a tiny bit longer than your long cardigan. If the cardigan is from a heavy material-knitwear, you can wear it instead of a coat. Just add a super big scarf and you are ready for winter. Long cardigans add an extra layer to any winter look and you can take them on/off and look completely different. You can also wear them all year round, even on a summer evening, when the temperatures are not so high.
Another super idea is to wear it with boots: a very nice and chic combination that you will love. Choose a nice, elegant color, as ivory, black, deep blue or brown and play with similar shades. If you want to stay elegant, don’t add too many colors or print, remain faithful to the golden rule: three colors are enough! If the long cardigan is loose, than play with skinny jeans. Whether you want to dress it up for the office, or throw it on for a casual afternoon at home, the long cardigan will not disappoint!
