As cosy and even more stylish than the sweater, here is the cardigan. Between cut, length and colour, we tell you everything to choose the model that best suits your style and also your desires. And your morphology too!
Short, long, black, colourful, buttoned or unbuttoned: there are as many models of cardigans as there are different ways to wear them! So yes, the cardigan requires more effort and imagination in the morning when getting dressed and composing your outfit, but to sulk it would be a real shame. Because well accessorised, the cardigan can be worn as a sweater as well as a trendy jacket. Learn right away how to tame its versatile side.
If you swear only by high-waisted jeans, you have the close-fitting cardigans. Only, they will allow you to balance the silhouette between the top and the bottom. To play the safe bet, preferably choose it in black cotton buttoned up to the collar. For more fantasy, dare a cropped model in flashy wool worn wide open over a simple white T-shirt: it should be enough to brighten up your entire look.
A little trick for those who don't like cropped volumes. Pretend with a long cardigan either tying its sides around the navel or bending it with a big belt. But be careful this trick can also quickly weigh down the silhouette if you already have some localised curves.
To pimp up a little black dress and make it more every day, nothing better than an emerald, green or pink cardigan, two of the three trendy colours for this season.
Allow yourself even more fantasy by choosing a knitted model with stripes or cables! Guaranteed effect on slender girls, especially if they add a pair of chunky boots to their feet.
Finally, if you never wear anything but long bohemian dresses, play cool to the end by replacing your winter coats with long fluffy wool cardigans.
Whether V-neck or round neck, nothing forces you to wear your cardigan buttoned up and down. Do not see the buttons as a constraint, but rather as an additional possibility to have fun with them.
How to wear a dress with a cardigan?
Three solutions are available to you:
1. You wear them unbuttoned: it's the least fussy way, the one that allows you to see that you're wearing a dress under your cardigan. In this case, avoid too long models which, can have the annoying tendency to pack the silhouette. Cut close to the body or oversized, the choice is yours. And to boost your look a little more, do not hesitate to roll up the sleeves of your cardigan to reveal those of your dress: dynamic impression guaranteed!
2. You wear them buttoned up like a sweater to cover up a dress that's a little too chic for work: by doing so, you'll "play down" your dress and everyone will have the impression that you're wearing a skirt with a cardigan.
3. You wear them belted to turn them into a jacket: weather permitting, belting your cardigan over your dress makes it very easy to adopt. Be careful, as you will need a minimum length to be able to slightly blouse your knitting.
