How to Wear a Cardigan

An article a little more consistent (aha), since this will both address the cardigans and DO and DO NOT of this piece is still inspiring once the Korean fashion, not necessarily free from defects either . Start with just a cardigan and shirt.

Yet it is for me the high ideal to dress in summer: perfect for bear in complete relaxation the fresh morning dew. And as the temperature rises, you can unbutton and roll up his sleeves and take off her cardigan ( I might as well describe a strip tease by writing this, but this is just bad luck).

No revolutionary explanation: a sober dark blue cardigan worn with a t-shirt to clear / white gray stripes. A subtle contrast. The somewhat dull holding that the eye is drawn immediately by the t-shirt that has the merit of being more work than just white t-shirt… and thus give a desired side for holding . It’s still casual; it is perfect to go have tea with friends one summer morning.

A white T could also have to do the trick in contrast skin / hair. The logic of balance is verified yet often:

Cardigan risky to wear, but assembled with very simple parts. No unnecessary accumulation.

An outfit similar riskier… A cardigan in particular gradient, vivid color tee shirt, it works because the colors are balanced and form a coherent contrast . The effect of worn jeans (which could almost be a DRKSHDW, Rick Owens) fits perfectly with the faded effect cardigan.A very nice outfit therefore, but two strong pieces (the vintage cardigan and jeans) remain in them even harder to pay with more conventional clothing (with dark jeans cardigan is I think less well integrated into the holding).

A cons-example: the cardigan model is interesting in itself. And his button recalls much that of a suit vest and black and gray trim at the collar brings a touch of originality. White tee shirt not contrast enough against the cardigan, so much so that at the beginning of the buttonhole it is hard to distinguish r d t-shirt u cardigan .A overlay is for me always be both subtle but well marked. Here she is too subtle and not pleasing to the eye.

Let’s add in a layer now: cardigan, shirt and t-shirt We spend three layers: a more manageable course, but the advantage of that cardigan is possible to hide the rough cut (level bending or shoulder) of a shirt. With three layers, one can make a logical and coherent superposition. For example the same color tone taken in several different ways.

Here we play with different shades of brown introducing different patterns and different materials. Consistent held, which is not necessarily going from lightest to darkest.

Still a good balance here. Note the subtle reminder of the cardigan with buttons the shirt. A layer can also be out with the others to score more easily contrast: here is the shirt that helps darken the outfit.

A logical progression here, from the light to the more sober. I am against a little skeptical about this outfit: the effects of light photography (shadows on the cardigan for example) play a lot on the record. In truth, I think the record is much more uncertain. Hold still on the principle of progression.

No shirt here, but this top is a textbook case for me . A good cardigan dark gray or light gray will balance it any shirt a little too colorful tiles. It’s casual very easy and accessible.

Finally, a semi-cons example: the superposition shirt / cardigan is very good: light blue with contrasting white stripes and dark blue. This is perfect color level. But again, the tee is not enough contrast so markedly with the shirt: it would have taken a dark gray or white tee.Besides color, a tee at the neck with a ribbed trim is for me not suitable for overlays and actually cheap general.

Opt for overlays minimalist t-shirt, a slightly scooped neck . For example this shirt American Vintage, a highly reliable brand for basic:

Finally, the overlay never do with a cardigan! An unshakable core logic of layering: we will always thinner to thicker . And large fleece hoodies are usually much thicker and consistent a cardigan. By cons, put a hoodie with zip over a cardigan is not incense. (But that’s what we’ll see in a future article).
