How to Wear Long Cardigans

Long Cardis, Skinny Pants, and Ankle Boots Add Up to a No-Fail Outfit

We're in the business of fashion — and we take our jobs pretty seriously. A big part of that is helping you look your best — minimal effort required — and that's why we've done the legwork for you with another easier-than-it-looks perfect outfit. This edition is all about crafting flattering proportions with a long cardigan, skinny pants, and leg-lengthening ankle boots. Fortunately, it's also as cozy as it is cute, which makes it a smart way to get stylish all season long. Start with your favorite pair of skinnies, but feel free to get more creative with textures or prints. The next step? We seek out the coolest long cardigans you'll want to live in around the house just as much as you'll want to show them off on the street. The length is also essential here; opting for a longer knit can help conceal problem areas, like hips and thighs, that you might be less excited to display. As for the finishing touch, an ankle boot with a heel provides just the right amount of lift, helping to lengthen the leg (especially if you opt for a style in the same color as your skinny bottoms). Of course, the best part about this formula is that it pretty much adds up to awesome no matter what prints, colors, textures, and styles you decide to use; the key to getting it right is proportion. Take a peek at three of our favorites, or start shopping to style up your own.
