How to Wear a Long Cardigan Sweater

Step 1

Wear a long cardigan sweater over a camisole with skinny jeans. This look keeps you looking like a woman, thanks to the cami and fitted pants, so the boyfriend cardi doesn't make you look too boyish. It's the perfect look whether you're heading to the mall with the kids or out for a casual dinner at night. Opt for Mary-Jane flats or pumps for a perfectly chic style.

Step 2

Pair a dress with a long cardigan sweater over top for a casual, pretty look. This adds a cover-up layer to keep off any chill without it being too heavy or bulky-looking. Opt for a bright-colored sweater to add some fun to your look. Play up a denim sundress with a bright pink or red cardi. Stick with neutrals to balance a bold-patterned dress.

Step 3

Button up a long cardigan sweater over a blouse with some wide-leg pants. This look begs for adornment with chic and interesting accessories. Think a long statement necklace or big earrings, an oversize leather shoulder bag, and shoes or short boots that steal the show.

Step 4

Leave a long cardigan sweater unbuttoned over top of a sexy tube dress if it's "date night" at your house. Go with a pretty gray cardigan over a leopard print tube dress or a white cardi over your favorite little black dress. Scrunch up the sleeves for casual style. Add a narrow metallic belt over the cardi at the waist for a more tailored look, a hot pair of heels and some big, bold jewelry.
