How to Style a Cardigan: Cardigan can add a class to the entire outfit. But styling of a cardigan is important. You can accessorise your cardigan with scarves, matching jewellery and belts to add a punch to your attire. Following tips can help you in styling your cardigan.
- Belt: Belts always enhance the fashion appeal of any attire and cardigans are no exception. Wear a stylish belt that complements the colours of the dress and contrasts with the cardigan.
- Brooch: Add more fun to your cardigan with a piece of an oversized brooch. Pin the brooch at the top of the sweater or over the top button and allow the cardigan to flare open to reveal the blouse underneath.
- Scarf: Complete your look by wrapping a scarf of contrasting colour around the neck twice and finish with a loose knot. It will definitely add a grace to your personality.
- Matching Jewellery: Give a finishing touch to your cardigans with creatively designed costume jewellery. You can wear danglers, hoops or other style to add a class to your personality. A tribal necklace or a beaded string will also go well with cardigans.
