One of my most asked questions is how to style a long cardigan! For today’s Trend Tuesday, we’re covering everything you need to know for long cardigan outfits.

Today’s Trendy Tuesday is All About Long Cardigans

Long cardigan outfits are super in right now – but balancing proportions and layering with this look can be hard. I’m sharing some great tips on how to incorporate this trend in your outfits!

If you’ve missed my other Trendy Tuesday posts, I’ve done one on TIE-DYE, STRAIGHT LEG JEANS and PUFF SLEEVES.

How to wear a long cardigan with jeans and a top

Long cardigans are a great option with jeans and a top. You could do a blouse or a tee or a tank.

But pay attention to where your top underneath hits on your body. With a long cardigan, a top that hits closer to your natural waist will elongate your legs and give you a more proportional look.

How to wear a cardigan layered under a coat

On those cold days, layers are a must! You can absolutely layer a cardigan under a coat, but make sure the coat is at least a tiny bit longer than your long cardigan.

See in the left image how awkward it looks with the end of the cardigan hanging 10″ out of your coat? Avoid that by choosing a long coat.

How to wear a cardigan with a dress

This is probably the trickiest of the three. With flowy dresses (specifically long, flowy dresses…midi and maxi length), a long cardigan can quickly turn a look very “pioneer-ish.”

There are two options…

  1. Choose a more fitted dress!
  2. Add a belt! Wrap the belt around your dress and your cardigan to create some shape.
