Lately, as the leaves begin to turn into beautiful fall colors and the weather becomes crisp and cool, I’ve been all for wearing cardigans around campus. From knit to cotton to cashmere, the options are endless. Cozy, chic and timeless, cardigans are a must-have fall piece.
I spotted this Fashionista wearing a sweater cardigan complete with Betsey Johnson combat boots, a simple white T-shirt and black leggings. The chunky material is perfect for this time of year and can be worn as an alternative to a jacket. She looked cute and comfy walking to class.
Cardigans are one of my favorite clothing items in my closet. I’ve always liked the versatility they offer. Classic cardigans can be worn with preppy accents or can take the trendier route, like this Fashionista's. Usually, I pair my cardigans with dark-wash jeans, a pretty tank and a bold statement necklace. However, I loved how this Fashionista approached this fashionable piece. Combat boots added edge to her simple look, while black leggings added comfort and flexibility.
To get this look, try this similar piece from Express. For a longer style, try this one from American Eagle Outfitters. It even comes in a fair isle print shown here. Banana Republic offers this cardigan with a thin, faux leather belt. Lastly, J.Crew sells the classic “Tippi” cardigan in various colors. This type of cardigan is the preppiest out of the bunch. So, if you don't have a few cardigans in your closet already, consider spending on this classic fashion staple. Happy shopping!
