How to Wear a Chunky Cardigan

What’s cozy, has been compared to a jacket, and makes you crave sweater weather even when fall still feels like summer? A must-have chunky cardigan paired with just about anything in your closet. Not only is the chunky cardi an undisputed fall wardrobe essential, but it’s also perfect for doing it all (or nothing at all). And if all it had to offer was crazy versatility, we’d still be in love. But, of course, there’s more. A lot more. Like fun fall colors to try, different lengths to play with, and new knits to choose from.

How to wear cardigans as an everyday layer

Whether you’re a city girl or simply on-the-go, consider the cardi your go-to-layer over pretty tops, tanks and tees alike. Just pair your favorite color with a pair of jeggings or leggings, and finish the look with your favorite booties, statement jewelry and pretty much any plans that involve apple picking (and cider sipping). For an extra layered look, tie a plaid around your waist or wear it unbuttoned over a cami underneath.

An open front is great for showing off layered necklaces.

How to wear cardigans with dresses

Who says you can’t wear your summer dress into fall? Just throw on a cardigan over your favorite summer (or fall) dress, add a longer necklace and a pair of booties and you’re dressed for a date with fall in no time. And we’ve got you covered when the temp drops too. Just add a pair of tights, knee length boots and a fun hat to keep you warm.

Break up patterns with a solid or neutral cardi.
