If there is one piece of clothing in the world that can make you look chic and stylish in a second, it has to be the long sleeveless cardigan. I’m not exaggerating at all. Okay, maybe it takes ten seconds to put it on instead of a second, but in terms of the effect it has on your overall look, the long sleeveless cardigan instantly adds a lot of character to your outfit. In this blog post, I’m going to share with you some of the best ways to wear a long sleeveless cardigan. Let’s take a look at them and try out the ideas that suit your character.
Wear it with a white tank top and skinny jeans
Combining a long sleeveless cardigan with a white tank top and ripped skinny jeans is one of the best ideas for a minimal outfit. Note that a good idea for a minimal outfit does not 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 casual wear for fall and spring. Both heels and flats work for the shoes. For the color of the cardigan, heather gray, dark gray, and black are some great options that go with the outfit.
Wear it with a white crop top and boyfriend jeans
If you’d 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 sleeveless cardigan is because boyfriend jeans generally have a relaxed fit, and crop tops help move the waist up visually for better proportion to achieve.
Off the shoulder long sleeveless cardigan
“Sleeveless” and “shoulder drop” 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 for every body type. The drop shoulder design makes your shoulders look slightly 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 proportionally 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 just wear it with a white top and ripped jeans. A long, stylish necklace is a great piece to complete this outfit.
Long-sleeved cardigan with hood
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, it’s a great idea 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 adds a lot of style to your look and makes you look more beautiful in a low key way. Team the outfit with a long silver necklace for an enriched look.
Black sleeveless cardigan with white tank top and black pants
Wearing a black sleeveless cardigan, white tank top, and black pants is a great outfit idea for dressing 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 smartly and casually for work, you can easily pair it with a long sleeveless cardigan. By adding the layer, the overall look is less boring and still looks 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 idea for a summer outfit. Not only does it look good, it’s also a functional outfit idea. It can help keep your legs warmer at night or in the summer in an air-conditioned environment.
Red long sleeveless cardigan with white dress
Whether you just want to dress cheerfully or go to a Christmas party, a red long sleeveless cardigan is a great outfit idea. Pair it with a white dress that’s shorter than your cardigan for a happy and gorgeous look. For a more casual look, you can combine the red cardigan with a white top and a mini skirt or denim shorts instead.
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 the best t-shirt dress outfit ideas.
White long sleeveless cardigan with a gray top
I mentioned earlier that a gray sleeveless cardigan goes well with a white top. If you want to replace the gray cardigan with a white one, it is a good idea to also replace your white top with a gray top to get the color contrast that will make you look casual and chic. Is it okay 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 combine a white dress with a cream colored long sleeveless cardigan. The use of color is beautiful and the cut just makes you look slimmer. This outfit idea should work well for those of you who are ladylike in character.
By now you should have realized just how versatile long sleeveless cardigans are. They can be easily combined with your various 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, the white tank top and the ripped jeans idea is simple but classic.
