Style Tips

If you're a fashionista looking for a new trend to try this Fall or simply want to add a new look to your wardrobe, then you've come to the right blog post.

Today, I'm sharing the one trend you NEED to try this Fall: The cardigan dress. This is THE new way to wear the cardigan and this year, it’s all the rage.

Here’s how to style a cardigan as a dress this season!

1. Choose the right cardigan

First things first, let's talk about what kind of cardigan you should choose to nail this look. Cardigans come in various styles, so you have a lot of options to choose from! I went with a medium length cardigan for a mini look, but you could definitely find a cardigan that hits the knees or goes past the knees for a midi or maxi look (which would be a great choice for the workplace). You can either choose a cardigan with buttons or without. Choose a lightweight cardi for mild days or opt for a thick wool cardigan for cold Winter days.

2. Style your cardigan dress

Now it’s time to take this basic item and give it a little bit of oomph. Style your cardigan dress with a belt to give it some shape or unbutton a few of the top buttons for a more daring look that’s ideal for date night. I'm loving belt bags this season, so I choose to style my buttonless cardigan with one. This is another great option to add shape and functionality to your look. After creating shape, you can style your cardigan dress with some layered necklaces and a killer pair of booties. A sleek pair of black sock booties is a trendy option, but a pair of kicks or knee-high boots would look just as good.

3. Layer your cardigan dress

Last, but definitely not least, make sure to layer your cardigan dress. I chose a pair of From Rachel Argyle tights because of their fun, yet classic print to pull together my look. I also chose a pair of tights for my look not just for the warmth, but for the security! Trends are great, but I'm also all about feeling comfortable and secure in everything I wear. There are endless styling possibilities for this look thanks to tights. You can also opt for a pair of classic black tights or something really fun like the Heart Print Tights. No matter which pair of tights you choose, your outfit is guaranteed to be on point!
