Cardigans are indispensable items to any girl’s wardrobe. Keep a few on hand at all times to match any occasion, no matter what the weather is.
Even though spring is here, it does not mean that the cold is gone completely. Layering is just as vital and as fashionable now as it is in the winter time. When the weather is unpredictable and constantly indecisive, shifting from rain to shine or giving us cool mornings and chilly nights with moments of warmth in between, layering definitely comes in handy. And while you may associate sweaters with the bitter chill of winter, they are just as useful (and just as cute) in the spring. A loose cardigan is an indispensable spring item and it is something everyone should make sure to have in their wardrobe.
Cardigans can be worn as an accessory or as a main feature of an outfit. They can be worn with dresses, with a tee and jeans, skirts, and even as a makeshift jacket over a pair of shorts and more summery outfits. Their power really comes from their ability to layer. When the weather is chillier, it is best to wear them with skinny jeans and boots. But they can also be worn when the weather is warmer as well. A cardigan over a spring dress can still be open and breezy in the sun but will protect you from the chill of the wind or in the shade. These handy accessories can also work just as great as a light jacket on cooler summer nights.
Cardigans are one of those wardrobe staples that come in handy when you have a few of them. It’s always handy to have a neutral color to match a majority of your outfits, but it’s just as useful to have some in varying colors. A statement color or print can do a lot to add oomph to a basic outfit if you’re dressing on the run or want to add some flare to an old outfit. Not only that, but they can be used to match any look, whether you’re going for romantic, daring, rocker chic, bohemian and can even extend to the general casual and professional looks. Their versatility is limitless. Wear them simply draped over your outfit, cinch it with a waist belt, layer it with a scarf, or button it up for a more preppy or professional look. These cozy items are perfect for mixing and matching and can do a lot to extend your wardrobe. Be sure you have a few that match your personal style as well as accentuate it.

As basic and neutral as they might originally sound, white accessories make for great beach or resort wear. Not only does the color make any skin tone look instantly and effortlessly tanner than usual, but this color goes with whatever you plan on wearing. Whenever you’re getting away from it all, you have to manage to pack a suitcase without bringing your entire wardrobe along with you. White accessories, such as bags, hats, enamel bangles or necklaces, or light, chiffon or satin scarves, give off that effortless resort chic look while matching absolutely anything you may wear. White can be easily dressed up or down and is one of the ultimate neutral colors. It can transform to meld in with whatever color palette you’re wearing, whether it’s jewel tones or pastels.
Some textures and styles are more appropriate for summer or vacation wear. Oversized hats and other woven or handmade material comes into fashion once the weather warms up so grab your floppy hat and woven hobo bag. These styles look effortless and a little bohemian, which suits the vacation season and warm weather. It evokes that feeling of relaxation and leisure that is synonymous with vacation. Oversized anything pretty much goes, including totes or flowy tops and dresses. You can layer light chiffon or silk scarves, wrapping them loosely around your neck in the warmth of the afternoon and draping them like a shawl over your shoulders once it cools in the evening. Loose, light cardigans and kimonos are also a great leisurely look to layer and experiment with. These relaxed looks will have you feeling calmer in no time.
These looser, lighter styles will help you break out of your schedule and your fashion routine, and can be appropriated for any personal style. If you happen to be headed somewhere warm or you are just planning on having some down time away from your everyday life, you can look great while feeling comfortable, too. Willowy, bohemian styles are perfect for relaxing, allowing you to remain chic and fabulous, even on your days off.
