Why A Cardigan Sweater?

The biggest reason to wear a cardigan sweater is to add a final touch or third element to your outfit. It’s the perfect item to serve as a completer piece! But if you’ve been with me for some time then you already know that I prefer to do things differently, and the obvious option is rarely my favorite choice. That’s why I’ve been wearing my cardigan without anything underneath. So it acts like a v-neck (or crew neck) sweater. Sometimes I’ll layer a camisole underneath as a protective piece from the knit fabric — to help catch sweat and act as a shield. But in this situation the camisole will be super low cut so it’s hidden from view.

Buttoned Up

Another thing to pay attention to with your cardigans is how you button it. Depending on your body shape, you’ll want to use the buttons to highlight or downplay certain areas. For example, one buttoned up top creates an inverted triangle which will draw the eye to the lower body. If you’re looking to downplay this area of your body, you wouldn’t want to button up like this. One button in the middle creates a more feminine shape. This is a great strategy if you want to highlight your waist.
