3 Ways to Style a Cardigan

Cardigan 3 Ways

November might mean Movember and college football to the boys in our lives, but to me, it means cozy sweaters and hot cocoa. Cardigans might not be your go-to sweater as they can conjure up images of buttoned up old men smoking pipes, but this fall they’re getting updated all over the place with embellishments, patterns, and colors. In this post, I parterned up with Old Navy and The Glitter Guide to show you how to style a sparkly Old Navy cardigan three ways this season. Check out the full post on The Glitter Guide here.

See details and tips for all of the looks below.

The first look I styled was the one that I’ll probably wear the most often. I tucked it loosely into my favorite jeans over a wine-colored blouse and layered with a scarf and big necklace. This is a dressed up casual look that can be worn for brunches or casual dinner dates.

For look number two I channeled my inner Rachel Berry (Lea Michele’s preppy character from Glee, in case you live under a rock!) by tucking it into a tweed skirt and keeping things preppy and clean.

The last look was super easy. I just tied up the cardi over a simple black dress and added pops of red to create a desk to drinks look for the holiday season
