Long Cardigan For Summer
Wearing a cardigan in Summer is a great way to be both practical and fashionable. They are a great transitional piece for overcast Summer days, an indoor party and especially for Summer nights. Long Summer days are some of my absolute favorites and this is such an easy accessory to put together with any look.
What To Wear With A Long Cardigan
The best part about long cardigan’s, is the options are endless. I think they can do one of two things — keep the outfit simple by wearing something like a solid short sleeves or a tank top with denim shorts or a skirt and let the cardigan be the focus item, or you can wear a more stylized outfit like high waisted skinny jeans and a crop top and just use the cardigan as an added accessory but doesn’t take away from the rest of your look. Both ways are super cute and great for different occasions, or depending on your mood!
List Of Favorite Items To Wear With A Cardigan
- White Dress
- Denim Shorts
- White Tank Top
- Slip Dress (with cardigan worn over, belted or unbelted)
- Skinny Jeans
- Open Toe Sandals
- Shorts (a little dressier and more stylized than denim shorts)
- A Pencil Skirt
- Basic T Shirts
All of these are items that you can pair together or wear separately with different items and you can put together so many creative outfit options.
My Favorite Long Cardigans For Summer
Lately I’ve seen a bunch of long cardigan’s that I am loving and I can think of so many ways that I will wear them in the Summer and then they’ll be great to have for this coming Fall. I put together five of my favorite cardigans for the Summer that I personally think you’ll love to and are worth purchasing.
Long Cardigan #1: Fynn
I’m obsessed with this cardigan by DEMYLEE. Honestly, I love the pale grey color of it because it has a fresh summer feel to it, how soft it is, and that there is a belt that comes with it to give your body and outfit a great natural shape. I would wear this sweater with simple blue skinny jeans from Joe’s and a white tank top.
Long Cardigan #2: Marc Jacobs
I’m really obsessed with this blue Marc Jacobs sweater. The bold color and cable weave is such a statement and I love that about it. Anything I wear is automatically going to be a statement and less is definitely more with this. I’d most likely wear this with a black denim skirt and black top to bring out the vibrant blue and keep your eye focused on the outer layer.
Long Cardigan #3: Featherweight
This is a sweater I believe everyone needs in their wardrobe. You can wear it for literally any season and so many ways. I actually am wearing a similar style one today. Today I’m wearing it with a feminine Ulla Johnson dress, but you can wear this basically with any outfit you put on. Trust me — you will NOT regret it.
Long Cardigan #4: Rainbow Stripe
I usually don’t like wearing things as crazy and bold as this but I actually am obsessed with this cardigan. For Summer, I would probably wear this belted as a top with tight fitting Levi’s underneath and heeled sandals.
Long Cardigan #5: Anabella
The coat feel of this Soia and Kyo cardigan is such a nice touch when you don’t feel like wearing a true sweater, but don’t want to wear something too structured. The natural shell color of this is also one of my favorites. It is such a soft and flattering color on all skin types. I would keep this outfit simple and chic with a white dress.
Which of these styled looks is the most you? I love all of them for different reasons but am curious to hear your favorite! Be sure to let me know in the comments below.
