Upgrade Your Wardrobe with a Sleeveless Cardigan

After purchasing a sleeveless cardigan in a burst of trendy fashion confidence, I brought it home only to wonder how to pull off the look. After playing around with different combos, and flipping through magazines to see how the stylists do it, I can confidently pull off this fashionable style. Update plain outfits with this simple inexpensive accessory.

Five Quick Wardrobe Upgrades with a Sleeveless Cardigan:

Option One. Layer a lightweight, cotton cardigan over a flirty blouse. The simple addition can be a pastel, bright or basic neutral color. Wear with jeans or a pair of Bermuda shorts. Add a pair of flats and a cross body bag for a great casual outfit. Floral blouses are a little too much for me without the extra focal point. The long lines of the cardigan also add a nice slimming effect.

Option Two. Wrap a sleeveless cardigan over a dressy blouse. Cross the ends of the cardigan and tie in the back. Top with a blazer, or jean jacket and finish the look with a pair of wide-legged trouser pants. The overall look is polished, comfortable and more sophisticated than a blazer and jacket combo alone. I like to use my crème colored ruffled tank, with a dark red sleeveless cardigan and denim blazer over slacks with pointed toe heels.

Option Three. Change the look of a favorite dress. I have several “go to” dresses that can use an upgrade, or should I, disguise, since I wear them so often. Enter the sleeveless cardigan. The beauty of this trendy fashion piece is in the details. Look for a complimentary color and nice long length when choosing a sleeveless cardigan. Slip over a dress, long-sleeved, short-sleeved or no sleeves, pattern or solid, it doesn’t matter. Pull it all together with a belt and you have yourself a new outfit. Give your little black dress an alter ego with a colorful topper.

Option Four. Tone down a sequined tank with a easy breezy sleeveless cardigan. Worn over skinny jeans with a pair of wedges or cute flats and you are set for a night out. What is more simple? This is why I am a sleeveless cardigan convert. Confused at first as to why anyone would need a basically shapeless piece of clothing, but after seeing it on and discovering the polished, sophisticated effect it has, I am a believer.

Option Five. Slip it over a cotton sundress, or maxi dress. The fullness and length of a maxi dress may not seem to need anymore fabric, but the sleeveless cardigan creates that slimming line that a mass of colorful flowers on your backside needs. I have nothing against fun summer dresses, except for the unfortunate widening effect of some styles. The cardigan can be belted or left open with a long pendant necklace to draw the eye to the center and slim the silhouette.

Women: 5 Ways to Wear White This Summer

If you are like most women, as the seasons change, so does your attire. For this reason, when the temperature rises, you begin sporting lighter clothing. What’s one of your go-to colors? Naturally, white. The only problem is trying to find new ways to wear white in the summer so your wardrobe does not appear redundant. Below are a few ideas I use to tackle this challenge.

Five ways to wear white this summer:

  • White Jeans. These bottoms flatter almost every figure. Why? A well-fitted pair of white jeans flaunt your curves and brighten up your look. Both of these aspects are a plus for someone who wants to usher in the sun.
  • White T-shirts. This top is a favorite in my summer wardrobe. You can dress a white t-shirt up or down depending on your place of destination. For example, a pretty scarf can turn a plain white top into something special – great for work or a date. Conversely, removing this accessory and sporting a strand of brown beads can change the same plain white top into something very casual.
  • White Sweaters. Do you work in a chilly office? Fight the cold with a white sweater. Because of the hue, no one will questions your choice of attire. Also, a few clothing manufacturers push these garments during warmer seasons, so they’re thinner and more airy than the ones you see during the winter.
  • White Dresses. A solid white dress performs is akin to blank slate to an artist. Like a white t-shirt, you can mold a white dress into whatever you want it to be according to the occasion. All you need is the right accessories. Your job – you must find one that promotes the best aspects of your figure.
  • White Shoes. Summer is the only time of the year that white shoes are technically “in”. From flip-flops to high heels, white shoes are fashionable. Take advantage of the moment before Labor Day rolls around and you have to argue with a judgmental pal as to whether or not your choice of footwear is appropriate.

Use these five ways to wear white in the summer to add a popular color to your warm weather wardrobe.
