BEST FALL CARDIGANS
How to Wear Sleeveless, Oversized, and Preppy Cardigans for Fall
HOW TO WEAR FALL’S FABULOUS CARDIGANS
One of the fastest growing trends in and out of Hollywood is casual cardigans. These perfect toppers are being thrown on over school wear, work wear, and daywear. There are many styles to choose from including preppy, menswear, sleeveless, and oversized cardigans. The fun begins when you start to mix and match all the trends together. Celebrity fashionista Katie Holmes recently stepped out in an oversized and sleeveless version that is perfect for warmer days, while up-and-coming cutie actor Jim Sturgess showed off the men’s version of the stylish preppy cardigan. We're excited to show you the perfect ways to wear this trend; and here’s a Diva Shopping Tip: Don’t confine yourself to the women’s section for this trend, but branch out and look at what the menswear department holds too!
When it comes to choosing an outfit for school it’s always imperative to look your best. Choose your favorite menswear-inspired preppy cardigan and pair it with button-down collared shirt and pleated skirt. We like Delia’s “Blair” preppy cardigan; the patchwork and stripe details give it the perfect varsity schoolboy kick. Add a pair of plaid shoes and a coordinating pack, and your ready to learn in style.
To really impress your boss, walk in to work wearing a long oversized cardigan in a fun color combo like Old Navy’s color block cardigan. Pair the topper with a great pair of slacks and a simple tee shirt in a solid color. If you’re feeling a bit quirky and fun, try Anthropologie’s adorable “Abbreviated Orbit” cardigan. Throw on a comfy pair of pumps; sweep your hair up into a loose bun, and you're ready to go.
Take your style cue from Katie Holmes and slip on a short-sleeved or sleeveless cardigan like this cable boyfriend cardigan from Charlotte Russe or Forever 21’s striped sweatervest. Throw on a cool tank top and dark pair of jeans with flats for a casual yet fabulous day out. This style is perfect for warmer weather but will still look equally fabulous when worn over long-sleeved items as the cooler weather comes in. Diva Style Tip: Keep your accessories simple and chic when wearing a cardigan to achieve a more sophisticated look.
Don’t delay; cardigans are the perfect extra for almost any outfit so make sure to grab one (or ten!) for the upcoming fall and winter months. Look for preppy, menswear, sleeveless, and oversized options (or all four in one) and try one on with all your day outfits. Now get ready, set, shop!
