Long Story

If there is one thing you can’t have enough of, it’s long cardigans in varying sleeve lengths and weights. They do everything from add polish to an outfit to keeping you warm in the winter and warm in over air-conditioning in the spring and summer. My favorite look this spring is to wear a long, loose cardigan belted over a silk tank paired with skinny, rolled up denim capris. They also look great worn over tunics and leggings or fun summer dresses.

My newest favorite cardigan is this extra long, silk linen version from Boden. It’s fabric is lightweight and silky with 3/4 length sleeves and hits a few inches above the knee. The longer length will pair well with tunics, dresses and skinny jeans while also lengthening your torso creating a long, lean silhouette. The lightweight fabric and 3/4 length sleeves make it the perfect piece to cover your arms by wearing over sleeveless tops and dresses. Available in blue, light brown, silver and coral online at www.bodenusa.com.

Fall Fashion Trends You Will Want To Wear: Get Your Cardi On

Cardigans are back, yet again, and are a truly, versatile separate that can instantly transform any outfit. This season you will see a wide variety of styles, cuts and shapes from long to short and slim to chunky.

Cardigans come in all colors this season with gray and black being the smart frontrunners but don’t be afraid to add a color to your closet. Novelty details like interesting collars, ruffles, beading and sequins add a bit of interest and look great paired with pants, skirts or dresses for day or night.

Play with proportions wearing a long cardigan over a short dress or skinny leggings or layer a 3/4 sleeve cardigan over a long sleeve shirt and don’t forget to layer great tanks, tees or button down shirts under the cardigans and top it off with a waist cinching belt.

Top Ten Trends for Fall-The Sexy Cardi

The cardigan is cool again for fall especially in cozy cashmere and a longer, sleeker length. Cardigans are the easiest way to layer up for fall and can be found at virtually every price point and store this season. To keep a cardigan from looking frumpy pair it with a laced trimmed cami or ruffly silk blouse and fitted bottoms like leggings, straight leg jeans and pencil skirts. Don’t forget to add a belt to help define your waist.
