A Style Statement, The Cardigan

Words Latoya Henry

 

The fall season has finally approached us, and as we adjust to the odd climate change, between humid and frigid. We’re searching for the perfect snuggly knit.  Some stylish people feel it’s necessary to focus on style over comfort. I personally believe it’s not true. You’re the most chic and confident when you feel comfortable in your attire. Hence, when choosing essentials for your wardrobe, consider important pieces for the present and future. One item that’s a seasonal must have is the cardigan. Cardigans are essential for both men and women. The best alternative to a jacket, and it could be worn throughout the year. When selecting a cardigan, consider three simple things, fit, color, and versatility.  First, the fit of a sweater determines how flattering it looks on the body and how it accentuates your form. You should concentrate on the length and the shape of the sweater. Though the oversized cardigan is all the rage, you want to pick a piece that is flattering and not frumpy.  

  

Second, when picking a color option try to avoid funky prints, trends constantly change and nothing is worst than being stuck with a regretful item. Opt for a solid color choice or a simple pattern. You want a quality investment piece that offers flexibility and longevity. Lastly, versatility creates a way for you to transition your style from day into night, season-to-season and casual to dressy.  What’s best about versatility, you have a piece that can be adjusted accordingly. Altogether, when choosing a new cardigan to add towards your wardrobe, focus on key essentials for the season ahead.
