Nothing beats an easy outfit formula that appears achingly stylish. You know the type — an ensemble that requires minimal thinking but garners you a ton of compliments every time you wear it. Can't beat it!
Fashion girls have favored combinations down pat — a t-shirt and jeans topped with a blazer or a dress worn over jeans being top contenders at the moment — and for 2018, we've determined that an oversize cardigan worn with a dress will be the latest crowd-pleaser.
Cropping up in many Spring collections, the classic cardigan is back, but with nuance. We're talking oversize fits, extralong lengths, and with special details like bold buttons, puffed sleeves, and artful stitching. According to the street style set, the preferred way to wear your cardigan is with a ladylike dress, whether it's a boyfriend style half-buttoned atop a pleated frock, a below-the-knee length cinched over an LBD, or a graphic print haphazardly draped off one shoulder to reveal a lacy white number beneath it.
If you're one for stress-free dressing, check out our favorite cardigan and dress outfits ahead, inspired by six of our favorite street style looks. Be sure to shop our picks so you can re-create each outfit on your own and master the It-girl ensemble with ease.
