cardigans for women

Top 10 Fall/Winter Cardigans for Women

Cardigans are the herald of the cooler weather, cups of hot cider, and daydreams of Christmas dinners and New Year’s celebrations. As we wrap ourselves in delightfully fuzzy and soft fabrics with the shifting of the seasons, it is imperative to be prepared and to own as many as possible. (Or is that just rationalizing our love for the blanket that is okay to wear as clothing?!)

As with the autumn leaves, cardigans for women come in a variety of shapes, fabrics and colors. Every woman needs one in at least four basic colors: blue, black, brown and a color of choice. From there, you can go the opposite of ‘simple,’ and purchase a few ‘statement’ cardigans, of which there are many! Here, we chose one from the winter trend of plaid, and a beautiful ombre. Both options allow for an understated outfit of all black, or other monochromatic combination. Let the cardigan pop on top of this sleek combo and be the focal piece. Dress it up with some chunky jewelry and booties, then walk out the door ready to face the day!

The trend with traditional cardigans for women has grown – many with lengths to the knee or below. Many cardigans now feature a hood, which is great for saving your hairstyle from the destruction of a winter hat. Pair a longer cardigan in a color that pops. Below, a simple trench coat in tan or black, to achieve a layering effect which allows for more expression as the winter layers become heavier and darker. Throw on a beautiful scarf that plays off that “liner color,” and then-do the same with your shoes for effortless mix-and-matching of all your favorite winter accessories!
