Women's Sweaters and Cardigans
When you're shopping for cardigans, you'll find that they'll come in all sorts of comfy cuts and lengths. Some will be long and button up, others will be the length of a shirt and lay open. Cardigans are a prime choice for Saturday mornings and joyful fall afternoons! But they are not just a seasonal item, no they're great year round (in different situations of course).
There's really a cardigan for every occasion and style. If you need selection, Kohl's has you covered:
What sets a cardigan apart from another type of sweater is its functionality. While other sweaters are usually pullovers, cardigans feature buttons and zippers, or an open front. This is what unlocks the versatility to take your outfit further than it could before. Now, this by no means discounts sweaters as a valid option. Often times sweaters are the answer. Cardigans often act as an accent piece for your outfits, while sweaters are an integral part.
The type of cardigan you pick also depends on the outfit. Ponchos and ruanas are a great way to add some layered mystery and flow to your outfit. Short sweaters are great for dresses with an open back you need to cover while at work (or if you get cold). Long variations are excellent at creating elegance while wearing your favorite jeans and t-shirt combo.
Of course, it wouldn't be fair if these styles weren't available to all body types. Everybody deserves to look good in a cardigan, so Kohl's features both petite and plus size selections as well.
During the cooler months, cardigans are always fair game. During the summer time, a long cardigan with shorts and a tank on windy days is a great look. They also pair well with business casual attire! If you need just a pop of something different to go with your dress, a cardigan is your answer.
For when things get too cold for a light jacket, consider a shirt length zip up cardigan over a cami, and a peacoat. You'll be looking fashionable while staying pretty warm. Conversely, an oversized and fluffy button-up cardigan should make you feel rather cozy.
Styling Your Cardigans
Styling your outfit with a cardigan is surprisingly easy. Match your colors and go! If you want to get more technical about it though, there's a lot that can go into making your cardigan really work for your look.
Long sleeve and long length cardigans are the usual go-to for adding to an outfit. They're comfy and flowy which tends to give you a more flowing and free look. This is ideal for casual and business casual looks alike. Pairing these with earrings or rings will give you a little flair to draw the eyes to your face or hands.
Another way to style is with a ruana or poncho. As said earlier, these can impart a more mysterious look, but they also give you an amazing silhouette to work with. Something that happens when you wear a poncho is that you tend to lose the shirt underneath. Because of this you have a few options to make the most of your outfit.
Often, your bottoms don't get a chance to shine. With poncho or ruana you have a chance to do just that. When you're adding them to your look, consider giving your most unique bottoms a shot. On that note, if you want to keep your bottoms more subdued, utilize a collared shirt to create a pop of color at your neck.
One other great way to style your poncho is to wear boots. Since they often hang low, this gives you a chance to show off your footwear, if you prefer subtler bottoms. A fashionable way to do this is to wear a pair of shorts or a mini skirt underneath your ponco, and rock some knee high boots to show off just a little skin, and lengthen your body.
