The cardigan is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing a woman can own. The diverse ways a woman can wear the cardigan is infinite and year-round, which makes the cardigan a must-have for any woman's wardrobe. The cardigan is available in department stores and speciality stores in a wide array of prices, or you can attempt to create a cardigan yourself for a one-of-a-kind look. Cardigans come with long-sleeves, short-sleeves, no sleeves and in a variety of fabrics; therefore, there is a cardigan for every woman.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Wear the cardigan in a relaxed style by layering it over a T-shirt or tank top with shorts or jeans. Layer a colourful cardigan over the top of a basic white undershirt, or pair a neutral cardigan with a bright undershirt to tone down the boldness of the outfit.

  2. 2

    Pair the cardigan with a spring or summer dress. Simple neutral cardigans, such as white or black, are often paired with strapless, short-sleeve and spaghetti-strap dresses. The thin or thick fabric allows women to keep their shoulders and arms warm when the temperature drops.

  3. 3

    Use the cardigan over a swimsuit as a cover-up. Longer cardigans made of thin cotton and any sleeve length are ideal to keep in the beach bag. Coordinate the colour of the cardigan to match the swimsuit.

  4. 4

    Replace a suit jacket with a cardigan at the office. Style a cardigan in a trendy colour, such as emerald green, with black trouser trousers and a coordinating blouse. Wrap a belt around the outside of the cardigan, at the waist, and wear to work.

  5. 5

    Wear the cardigan as a twinset with a skirt. Purchase a cardigan with the coordinating undershirt, if available, to complete a twinset. Pair a twinset with a casual skirt, such as a cargo or jean skirt for a laid-back look. Opt for a more formal style with the twinset by pairing the set with a pencil skirt for the office.

  6. 6

    Wrap up in a long cardigan made out of a thick material by wearing a tank top and leggings. Longer, thicker cardigans are ideal during the winter months and can be accessorised with thick belts or scarves.

  7. 7

    Style the cardigan over a turtleneck for a cool-weather layering outfit. Turtlenecks that are bold and bright will coordinate nicely with a nude, white or black cardigan. In addition, because the turtleneck has long sleeves, pair a short-sleeved or sleeveless cardigan over the shirt.

Tips and warnings

  • Wear pins or brooches on the cardigan for a trendy look. Carry a cardigan with you when attending an evening event or visiting the cinema -- where it is always cold.
