How to wear a cardigan in fall?
Cardigans come in all shapes, sizes and colors. You can find them in any store and they are easy to style. You can wear them over a dress, with jeans or even with shorts. Get inspired by these ideas on how to wear cardigans in fall.
Favorite Fall Look – Aztec cardigan with leggings & boots
The fall combo of a cardigan, tights, boots and a nice shirt is something that happens regularly at this time of year. A lot of advice today focuses on styling an oversized cardigan with tights/leggings. Here is the first thing to consider when wearing large sweaters. The bottom half of your outfit needs to be figure hugging. The more clothing/fabric you wear on top, the less clothing you need underneath to balance the outfit.
The next piece of the outfit puzzle is boots. You can really wear any style and color of boots, but make sure that they are more casual. Since this is a casual and classic look, don’t wear high patent leather boots. You can wear boots with a lower heel in black, brown or even taupe. Just make sure that the boots go well with the cardigan you are wearing.
The last essential element to complete the look is the shirt. We recommend a simple, solid color shirt. Stay away from lace, chiffon, ruffles, or anything that would make the outfit overwhelming. This is a casual and classic fall outfit, and we want to keep it that way. If you want to add color, the shirt is the perfect place to do it.
