If there’s one garment in the world that can make you look chic and stylish in seconds, it has to be the long sleeveless cardigan. I’m not exaggerating at all. Okay, maybe it takes ten seconds to put on instead of one, but in terms of the impact it has on your overall look, the long sleeveless cardigan adds a lot of character to your outfit right away. In this blog post, I am going to share with you some of the best ways to wear a long sleeveless cardigan. Let’s look at them and try the ideas that suit your character.
Wear yours with a white tank top and skinny jeans
Pairing a long sleeveless cardigan with a white tank top and ripped skinny jeans is one of the best minimal outfit ideas. Note that a good idea for a minimal outfit doesn’t mean dressing as simply as possible, but rather wearing just the right amount of clothing to achieve the style you want. This outfit is great as casual wear for fall and spring. Both the heels and the flats work for the shoes. For cardigan color, heather grey, charcoal gray and black are some great options to go with the outfit.
Wear it with a white crop top and boyfriend jeans
If you would rather wear boyfriend jeans than skinny jeans instead of wearing a white tank top as suggested in the previous outfit idea, you can wear a white crop top. The reason for choosing a crop top with boyfriend jeans and long sleeve cardigan is because boyfriend jeans generally have a relaxed fit and crop tops help to optically move the waist up for better proportions .
Off the shoulder long sleeveless cardigan
“Sleeveless” and “drop shoulder” don’t go together very often. But for long cardigans, they work very well together. However, you should be careful with this outfit idea as it is not suitable for every body type. The drop shoulder design makes your shoulders look a little wider than usual. Avoid this outfit if you have broad shoulders. However, if you have narrow shoulders or a pear shaped body, this is a great outfit that can help make your hips look proportionately smaller.
Long sleeveless crochet jacket
If you prefer a more complex and feminine look, you can choose a long sleeveless crochet jacket. Just like wearing a simple long sleeveless cardigan, you can also wear it with a white top and ripped jeans. A long stylish necklace is a great piece to complete this outfit.
Long-sleeved hooded cardigan
For hoodie fans, a long sleeveless hooded jacket is something to try. The hood just adds a few details that make you look more casual and relaxed.
Heather Gray long sleeveless cardigan with an all black outfit
For those of you who love to wear all black, a great idea is to tone it down a bit by pairing it with a heather gray long sleeveless cardigan. Not only does it keep you dark and cool, it also adds a lot of style to your look and makes you look more beautiful in a demure way. Pair the outfit with a long silver necklace for an enriched look.
Black sleeveless cardigan with white tank top and black trousers
A black sleeveless cardigan, a white tank and black pants are a great outfit idea to dress up like a musician, designer or artist of any kind. The black and white combo just looks so artistic and stylish. Try this outfit to express the artistic aspect of your character.
Wear it with a white shirt for work
If you often wear a white shirt to dress smart and casual for work, you can easily combine it with a long sleeveless cardigan. Adding the layer makes the overall look less boring while still looking professional.
Wear it with denim shorts
Wearing a long sleeveless cardigan with denim shorts and a black or white top is a stylish and unique summer outfit idea. Not only does it look good, it’s also a functional outfit idea. It can help keep your legs warmer in an air-conditioned environment at night or in the summer.
Red long sleeveless cardigan with white dress
Whether you’re just looking to dress down in a cheerful outfit or are going to a holiday party, a red long sleeveless cardigan is a great outfit idea. Pair it with a white dress shorter than your cardigan for a fun and gorgeous look. Instead, for a more casual look, you can combine the red cardigan with a white top and a mini skirt or denim shorts.
Wear with shirt dress
For a relaxed and feminine look, you can combine the long sleeveless cardigan with a shirt dress. In fact, t-shirt outfits are pretty easy to take off. If you’re interested, check out our previous blog post on Best T-Shirt Outfit Ideas.
White long sleeveless cardigan with gray top
I already mentioned that a gray sleeveless cardigan goes well with a white top. If you are looking to replace the gray cardigan with a white one, it is a good idea to also replace your white top with a gray top for the color contrast that makes you look casual and chic. Is it ok to keep the white top? Yes, surprisingly, white on white works pretty well for this outfit.
Cream long sleeveless cardigan with white dress
For a feminine gorgeous look, you can simply pair a white dress with a cream long sleeveless cardigan. The use of color is gorgeous and the cut only makes you look slimmer. This outfit idea should work well for those of you who have a ladylike personality.
By now you should have realized how versatile long sleeveless cardigans are. They can be easily matched with your different outfits. Don’t hesitate to try the ideas mentioned. Some are very casual, pretty, and most importantly, easy to pull off. For example, the heather gray long sleeveless cardigan, white tank top and ripped jeans idea is simple but classy.
