Oh the many ways a cardigan can happen! From preppy style to boho to classy to vintage to modern...anything!
Trend Bloger wrote, "In time history, when a character thought “cardigan,” metaphors arose of a caring grandmother or a 50′s-era dad with his paper and slippers by the hearth. Nevertheless these being, cardigans have become the hot go-to form for almost every variety, happening and spell. Available in an endless combination of colors, cuts, sizes and fabrics, a cardigan is a principal wardrobe thing whether your focus is emotion comfortable or sensation stylish."
I am addicted to cardigans. Not only can you wear them in summer (I think it's a necessity to have one in your car going from crazy heat waves to icy cold air conditioning and still wear all your cute summer clothes!), but then it's a purchase that'll get you through winter, too, with tons of layers and fun. And cardigans don't have to be so spendy either or change all that much with trends - thrift stores and consignment shops are great places to find a sweet one!
And I looove the yellow going on these days...
And variety of ways to accessorize the heck out of cardigans with belts!
One way of wearing a cardigan that I really haven't tried is tucking it into a skirt. Might need to try soon...
And style your outfits for all sorts of looks...
And for your DIY pleasure...a ruffled cardigan inspired by anthropologie that looks pretty awesome! (click photo)
Awhile ago I also tried a remake an old sweater into a cardigan tutorial from Adventures in Dressmaking (click photo!):
I am so ready for a really really really quiet weekend...will probably find me a large, oversized cardigan in my closet (regardless of the weather!) and REST!
