How to Style a Long Cardigan for Fall

As the weather starts to change, so does my mood. I’m itchy to start wearing clothes that are a little darker and heavier, but not too much because the weather is fickle!

So what do you wear? A long cardigan is a fabulous layering piece and a great starting point to transition your wardrobe. Here’s a modern way to style a long cardigan for Fall to look casually elegant.

A great-looking Fall cardigan outfit begins with a solid base. Last week, I took timeless neutrals like a white shirt, blue and black jeans, and this cute black and white top and paired them with a gorgeous bright pink double-breasted blazer.

This week, I’ve taken those same chic black, white, and navy staples and, instead, paired them with this classy, cobalt-blue ribbed cardigan. The jacket and cardigan act as the “third piece,” elevating a basic outfit to a more polished level. But since the sweater is less structured, it has a softer, more welcoming vibe.

This year, the trendy style recipe is to mix brights with neutrals. This combo works perfectly for this transitional period. This vivid blue cardigan over a chic black and white base feels classic and seasonless.

I love how intense and powerful the bold blue is for fall, yet it’s still clear and bright enough that it has the energy of summer.   It feels halfway into fall -.This color is a bit of a tease!

I paired this fabulous white tunic shirt and cardigan with my favorite dark wash jeans and added some strappy black booties to get the season rolling. My suede and leather fabric blocked tote adds some earthy fall texture, and the flowy print scarf ties all the colors together.

Easy, classic, modern. Mixing a bright cardigan with a neutral base is an easy way to style long cardigans this fall and always look chic.
