There is something so timeless about a cardigan. It’s versatility lends itself to its ability to go from season to season, all the while remaining a staple in the wardrobe. I didn’t stop this Fashionista for her cutting edge style; instead, what caught my eye was the way she belted her cardigan showing off her shape. It’s easy to get lost in the oversized trends these days, from the sunglasses that hide your face to maxi dresses that engulf the petite. This Fashionista effortlessly showcased her slender waist in a casual and completely versatile outfit.

How To: To achieve this look, look for a cardigan that pops! Also look for one without buttons that can easily be belted. The next step is to find the perfect belt that can highlight your waist. Look for one on the thinner side in the color of your choosing. Slip into some shorts and sandals to complete the look.
