A long cardigan is a wonderful transition piece into the cooler weather. It can be office-ready or super-casual, and makes an outfit look more finished and intentional. It’s cozy and comfortable and you can use it as a blanket at the movies. The fabulous women of Visible Monday provide inspiration for wearing a long cardigan or vest.
As always, the first tip is: wear a long cardigan if it makes you happy, and own it. Go neutral or stand-out bright, wrap it, belt it, or let it flow free.
Always room in my closet for a cozy long sweater:
Glenda of So What To Twenty chose a lemon yellow long cardigan that serves as a colorful focal point as well the perfect “third piece.” Love her socks and shoes too; she is fabulous.
Laurie of Vanity And Me looks terrific in a monochromatic outfit topped with a drape-front sleeveless vest. Looks like a very versatile piece. Great necklace too:
Pam of Over 50 Feeling 40 tops her long black open cardigan with a brilliant red scarf. She wears this long lean look so well. Want to look taller? Go with a dark, streamlined long topper like Pam’s.
Debbie of Fashion Fairy Dust always looks gorgeous, and don’t you love her fiery hair against this bright pink topper? This one is not technically a sweater, but it fits the shape and length, and really adds a pop to her look..
Linda of A Labour Of Life ia actually wearing two toppers: a cool checked cardigan and a long, drapey black one on top. Her accessories really polish up the look, a mix of casual and dressier pieces.
How do you like your long toppers?
