What To Wear With: A Boyfriend Cardigan
October 17, 2008
Boyfriend cardigans will be everywhere come fall, but if not worn right, they can make you look sloppy and unkempt. Just remember the golden rule: more volume in one place equals less volume in another.
What does that mean? Since the charm of the boyfriend is in its oversized shape, you'll want something slim-fitting on the bottom. Choose a pair of black skinny jeans to keep the look casual. Instead of a boring tank or worn out tee, try a fitted tuxedo shirt — the detail in the front will be framed nicely by the sweater's V. Slip on a pair of feminine patterned ballet flats to add color to the outfit. And for accessories, a vintage-esque watch and cocktail ring add the perfect amount of flair without going over the top.
