A girlfriend of mine and I were chatting a few weeks ago about how cozy and comfy long cardigans are for fall and winter. Her one issue with them is how to create a dressier look with one. I think many people instantly think casual outfit with booties and tshirts when they think of a cardigan outfit. She asked for some tips to dress up her jeans and cardigan looks and the idea for this post was born.
One way to easily dress up a long cardigan for fall is to layer it over a material like silk, satin, or lace. These materials have a dressy factor on their own and will give your cardigan a slightly more luxe look when partnered together. The deep v and cross neck detail on this satin top also helps amp up the statement factor of this look.
Another way to dress up a cardigan is to add a killer pair of shoes. I usually lean towards a great pair of heels to dress up an outfit. Not a heels person, grab an animal print or colorful pair of pointed toe flats.
Last tip, add some great jewelry. You can stick to your classic solid pieces or add in some colorful statement pieces. Either way, jewelry is another easy way to dress up any outfit especially a long cardigan.
