With Fall around the corner, cardigan season is also coming in soon and very soon. I love cardigans and sweater coats and sweater blazers. These photos are from several years ago and I still wear this cardigan every Fall and Winter.
The Best Cardigan For Travel
I always get cold on planes – always, always! So I travel in a cardigan often and I also usually bring along an alpaca wrap as another layer. A go-to travel outfit for me is similar to what I’m wearing here. A long cardigan, a tee, jeans and some flats or favorite sneakers.
I prefer to be in long sleeves on planes and I think an oversized cardigan like this one makes for the perfect travel layer. Are you about travel sweaters? I’d love to hear below in the comments! I am team Stay Warm when it comes to traveling so one of my best travel tips is to always have another layer you can put on if you need it.
How To Style A Cardigan
A longer cardigan you don’t want to pair with jeans that have a big flare. Skinny jeans work well or a more fitted legging or pant.
Consider adding height
For longline cardigans, I can pull of flats but I prefer to style add some height so I’ll often style mine cardigans with heeled booties.
Be mindful of size
Don’t let a cardigan swallow your frame and add weight to your frame. Be mindful of size and read reviews before you purchase.
Check out Fabric
Consider fabric when buying your cardigans. Think about merino wool for cooler months but also I have a few lightweight, breathable cotton cardigans I love, too and I wear them year round as a layering piece.
