…And not just because we’re listening to Cardi B. Winter is on the way and there’s one great piece of clothing you need to get you through it, (well okay, more than one…but let’s focus!) the cardigan! Cardigans are versatile, they can be dressy or cozy, but one thing is for sure: they are always comfy. The easiest way to wear a cardigan is over a tee shirt with a pair of your favorite jeans. But a cardigan can be so much more than that!
The Camel Rib Long cardigan is for all my business casual ladies.
A camel cardigan like above can easily be worn for a dressed-up look like Sloan has styled here. The contrast of the black and camel with dark denim is an easy dressed up look for dinner with the girls or date night. Don’t be afraid to add a belt at the waist to give yourself a silhouetted look and take it up a notch.
Sloan paired this mustard and harvest colored cardigan with a graphic tee. It can be used as a statement piece with a white button down and black work pants too! If you find your wardrobe has more neutral colors, but you want to experiment with some color—a bright and fun cardigan like this one is for you! The Perfect Fall Open Sweater is an extending sizing exclusive at Gia Rose.
Cozy, Cozy, Cozy! The Blue haze longer cardigan is perfect to wear with leggings! The extra length will cover the hip/butt area. Even though there are blue hues, they are light enough that this could be considered a neutral.
Cardigans have a reputation of being warm and bulky, that is not always the case. There are lightweight cardigans like the LS Ash Rose Cardi that features the longer length (for leggings) but is made of a lighter fabric and comes in a multitude of colors for all your outfits. This cardigan can be worn now when your office cranks up the heat and again in the early Spring! What’d I tell ya? Cardigans are versatile!
The kind of cardigan you can toss on over practically everything, this belted wool-blend style is great for styling with an all-black business chic look or with a t-shirt and jeans for a casual weekend vibe. This cardigan hits at the hips and is best worn with denim or your favorite work pant. It would also look awesome over a shift dress!
While I have got you here, let’s touch on jackets for just a sec. You. Need. A. Jean. Jacket. Any style, any color, any amount of distressing. Yes, we wore the heck out of them in the 90s, and I’ll admit sometimes it can feel very Mary Kate and Ashley ala It Takes Two, but we learned our lesson from the boxy fit, straight leg jeans, and backward hats, right? Now we wear them with dresses (both short and long), we know to compare a cropped denim jacket with a swing dress, an oversized jean jacket with leggings or skinny jeans creates a streamlined look over that 90s look. 😉
