Long cardigans (or dusters) have been trending for a few seasons now and by the looks of what I'm seeing in the stores and in Blog Land they are not going anywhere soon. My favorite time of the year to wear long cardigans is in the fall when I don't need to wear a winter coat. In the fall I don't have to worry about the cardigan hanging past the length of the winter coat, because I can go coat-less. You gals who live in warmer climates don't have to worry about that and can wear long cardigans all winter long!
For today's look, I paired my long cardigan with skinny jeans, a black sleeveless shirt, black shoes and bag, and a leopard print scarf.
Everything I'm wearing is old except the black hand bag.
For jewelry, I chose a multi-colored long beaded necklace and a gold/black bracelet.
I always wear a necklace under my scarves in case I get warm and need to remove the scarf. I don't like to be accessory-less around the neckline.
This photo shows the necklace for you.
And this photo shows the bracelet.
I purchased the Liz Claiborne Elizabeth Tote Bag from JCPenney.
Would you believe I specifically designed this outfit for a flu shot I was getting this day? Yup! I even plan my outfits for flu shots. 🙂😁 I did go shopping for the day too, so it's not like I got all dressed up just for a shot. But, I did want the ease of exposing my shoulder for the shot, so I wanted to wear a sleeveless shirt. The cardigan was super easy to slip off to receive the shot.
Because of the length, long cardigans can sometimes be difficult to style. Especially if you need to wear a winter coat as I explained above. I tend to use my cardigans mostly as lightweight jackets. Here are some other ways I styled this same burgundy cardigan over the years:
With A Dress
With Leggings and Tall Boots
With Bermuda Shorts
With A White Tank and Straight Leg Jeans
What about you? Did you buy any new long cardigans this season? How do you tend to style/wear them? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a Great Day! Amy
