Sweet sweater style

Cardigan sweaters are staple pieces in every woman's wardrobe. And this season, long cardigans are hotter than ever. Choose a cardigan that hits at the hip or mid-thigh and you'll be thrilled with how many ways you can wear it.

Sweet sweater style1Belt it with leggings

A long cardigan can be worn over a tank and leggings (or your favorite skinny jeans). Add a thick belt in a contrasting color for a trendy look that can't be beat.

2Wear it unbuttoned with a graphic tee

Wear your cardigan open with a graphic tee underneath for a casual-chic look. It will also look great unbuttoned over a ruffled blouse and trouser pants for the office.

3Layer it over a turtleneck

For a classic look, layer your favorite cardigan over a fitted turtleneck. This style goes well with everything from a pencil skirt to relaxed jeans.

4Button it up over a sheath dress

Stay warm and look cool by adding a long, slouchy cardigan over a sheath dress that hits at the knee. Add a pair of Mary Jane pumps for girly-girl look that will turn heads.
