I know what you are thinking. Cardigans are for old women and if you are not old enough, they make you look like a grandma. Well, this is not true, in my opinion it all depends from the fabric, colours, the style you are wearing and mood you are choosing. Cardigans can be pretty cool if you style them in the right way. Never combine them with pieces that are too classy, because cardigans are enough classy itself, so try something more edgy and modern, like a leather skirt, a long, flirty dress, a pair of really cool jeans. Cardigans are one of those things that every woman has in her closet. They come in all shapes and sizes, colors, and prints, but all cardigans are not created equally. Some cardigans are better for certain body types, and others are better for certain outfits. It can get a little confusing sometimes, but wearing the right cardigan for your body type and for your outfit is important. So today let’s talk about it, lest you wear something that makes you look stumpy, wide, or just wrong.
A cardigan can be cute if it’s intentionally slouchy, but not if it’s simply oversized. If you do wear a slouchy cardigan, make sure it works for your body type, and that you are wearing something form-fitting underneath. Right now the long, straight cardigans are having a moment, but make sure to look at the rear view before deciding to purchase one. They may look okay from the front, but if you turn around, they can go terribly wrong. Many cardigans come without buttons at all, which is just fine because it is a rare situation that you would actually want to button a cardigan. 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.
There are known knee-length designs, as well as floor-length pieces in chunky knits and bohemian details. There are great numbers in lightweight fabrics, including mesh and lace. Keep it cool with a boho inspired updates. We see an ankle-length knitwear paired with black slim-fit separates. Finish the look by adding wide-brim hat, chunky accessories and cool booties. What is a real importance in this look, then it’s the details. Play hard by wearing granny style knits with a pair of heeled ankle booties, red lips and jewelries. The most important thing for you is to feel confident, great and relaxed.
