What to wear with a: Cardigan

11 Nov

I have discussed before that the most common questions I field are, what do I wear with that? “That” being a pair of pants, a skirt, top, etc… Since the cooler temps and Winter months are upon us I found it appropriate to discuss, What to Wear with a Cardigan.  It’s so easy to throw on a tank, cami or t-shirt underneath. But I think it’s important to showcase pieces beyond that parameter, to keep the look exciting.

I personally like to have my arms covered during this time of year so a sleeveless top doesn’t really cut it for me. Adding texture, color, patterns, embellishments tops are great way to transform a cardigan from looking ordinary to extraordinary. For example, if the cardigan in  combination #1 was paired with a plain t-shirt than the the outfit would look well, plain. Pairing it with a patterned top keeps it fresh and interesting. Finishing the outfit with black skinny pants or a straight leg pant would complete this outfit nicely.
