It’s officially autumn. Do you love a good cardigan as much as I do? It’s the perfect time of year to have one! Now is when the days can be warm in the sun, but cooler in the shade. I find needing to have a cozy, chic cardigan wrapped around my shoulders or at the ready is very necessary.
Cozy Chic Cardigans
How do you achieve cozy and chic at the same time? Is it even possible with a cardigan?
I believe so.
Personally, I prefer a cardigan with a v-neck because it’s less dowdy and can be worn alone, exposing some beautifully simple jewelry on your decollete.
Or if you want to pull a “Katie Holmes” with her infamous Khaite Cardigan and bralette set, you can achieve the same look without the luxury designer price tag.
What I love about the Khaite cardigan though, is the lantern-shaped sleeves, slightly oversized, but not too boxy, without hitting too far down the hips. It’s not a grampa looking cardigan but very sexy. Especially if you are daring enough to wear the bralette under the cardigan with nothing else. This, of course, depends on how endowed you are in the bosom department. 😉
This sweater combo would look great with jeans, as shown on Katie, or with a pair of leather pants to dress it up.
I know it seems insane to spend over $1500 on a cardigan (not in my budget), but for some who are into “investing” in luxury fashion, this classic look may be worth the splurge.
Having a cardigan which has an oversized feel and a semi-cropped bottom, can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Investing in a classic neutral like gray or tan will never go out of style.
The occasion might just be a glass of wine and a good book by the fire. In any case, you’ll be cozy and look good to top it off.
Shawl Neck Cardigan
If you’re not a buttoned-down kinda gal and just want a chunky sweater to throw over your tanks and tees, I’m loving these shawl collar knits! The price is much lower because these are not merino wool or cashmere, but acrylic. This one comes in 14 colors and is only $27.99!
On the Left: Here’s another boyfriend, oversized chunky sweater for only $30.00 which comes in 8 additional colors.
On the Right: If you want to take your comfort to the next level, this Barefoot Dreams Cozychic Lite Circle Cardi is pure luxury! Wearing it as a set with the Barefoot Dreams Cozychic Ultra Lite Women’s Lounge Pant will be your favorite lounging duo this whole year, I promise!
You can’t go wrong with chic and cozy cardigans this fall and winter. Freshening up your sweater shelf by shopping something you can use over and over again is always a smart investment.
Investing in a pricier cardigan can be worth it in a neutral color, but having fun with an inexpensive treat to yourself is always fun too!
