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.
