12 In My Outfits/ STYLE

The Long Cardigan

What’s not to love about a long cardigan? It instantly pulls together an outfit, can look casually cool, and covers the bum. Sold! One in every color, please.

Yup, you definitely might need to test out some styles and lengths based on your height and body type — for example, ones longer than this can be hard for me to pull off. This one, in a neutral grey, has become a clear winner for myself and for a number of friends. Equally love it in a rich burgundy, a solid black, blush pink or classic navy.

A cardigan is a natural with a pair of pants (I love this one with a basic white tee and black denim, for example). To mix it up, check out how to style your long cardigan with your skirt (or similar length dress). To keep proportions in check, avoid a too baggy top that can make you look bigger than you are.

Prettiest bow details

PS: Florida girl here SUPER excited to finally be wearing a pair of booties! I totally love mine (currently on sale). For a slightly more on-trend look, consider two new pairs of booties:

the “sock bootie” — this pair is adorable… and the grey is half price! You can find more options here… I love how slimming they can be!

the “hiker bootie” — feels so reminiscent of the 90s! Some pairs can look clunky but this one is perfection.

    Oh my gosh I love this! I’m not always comfortable in shorter skirts, but I love that the longer cardigan gives a little more coverage.
