I am loving the latest sweater trend this season- long cardigan sweaters. It feels like you are wearing a big hug. Plus it looks super chic and it’s an easy way to dress up a casual look.
This sweater is from Gap (PS they are having 40% off sweaters sale). I found the length perfect and the thickness exactly what I wanted. Something comfy and warm that if I am not wearing a coat, I will still be okay. Of course, once winter hits I can double up with a long outer coat.
I can imagine curling up with a hot cup of cocoa and sinking into a chair to read a book in this cardigan. It is also a great game day look. There is a high school across from where I live, and Friday Night Lights is a thing here! It is fun to support the local kids and see the community gather around. While I can’t find this exact cardigan online, here is a similar one and more listed below.
How To Style It
For this look, I went with distressed jeans and a lace cami (on sale!). I wanted to add a little bit of charm with the lace cami. Another way to style this long sweater is with black skinny jeans and a striped long sleeve shirt. Or you could wear a slip dress, tights, and moto boots with this topper! Have fun with it and jazz up the look that works best for you!
What To Look For
To make this long sweater practical, look for a thicker knit. This will keep you warmer through the changing season. Also look for a length that is practical to your lifestyle. I’ve seen floor-length sweaters. To me, that is not practical because I am constantly on the city streets. Lastly, pick a color that is neutral and will go well with your current wardrobe!
