The weather at the moment has been a little tricky when it comes to getting dressed in the morning. Although we’re all itching to bust out the heavy knits it’s just not that cold yet. A lighter cardigan is the perfect transitional piece and the latest trend of long-line pieces has been everywhere.
Before purchasing this piece I was a little worried it wouldn’t be for me. Despite being a basic grey marle shade (my fave!) the length was a little daunting. Fear not because I’ve found this really slots into my everyday wardrobe easily and it’s not as scary as it would seem instead it adds a really effortless chic feeling to any outfit.
Play with lengths
The length on this cardigan is super long so during the autumn I’ve been playing around with different lengths for layering. For instance in these photos I’ve styled it with My St. Frock ‘Gone Girl Shirt Dress in Black’ it the hems couldn’t be more contrasting. It breaks up the lines in the overall look so it’s not as harsh. I find teaming it with a shorter length piece with tights also works super well. A little side note – this dress is a must-have because you can tuck it into skirts and make it look like a cute shirt as well – win!
Wear something with a heel
Fun fact I tried this on twice in store before purchasing. Once I had trainers on and the other time I had my Melody Boots from Soho Boutique on. If you’re a little worried about the long-line piece swamping you try it on with both to make sure you can make it work for your height. I know plenty of gals who get these pieces taken up but honestly you’ll be amazed what a heeled boot can do.
Stick to neutral tones
If you’re a little concerned about the long-line cardigan or coat being a little ‘too much’ for everyday I would suggest keeping to the neutral tones just until you’re confident in the piece because it is different. A dark grey or black will help you fly under the radar and once you’re loving rocking the piece team it with an uber cool slogan tee and hat!
