How to Wear a Boyfriend Cardigan to Work

How to Wear a Boyfriend Cardigan to Work

One of the season's biggest trends is a wardrobe essential. The boyfriend cardigan is versatile, chic, and comfortable, which means it's not going to go out of style anytime soon. How do you wear it in the office? Just like any other cardigan, you can pair it with everything from printed sheaths to classic trousers; the key is to combine it with dressier pieces and sleek accessories. Here's how you can seamlessly blend your favorite boyfriend cardigan in with the rest of your workwear:
  1. Start with a dressy silk blouse in a simple neutral such as grey or white, or a color that complements your cardigan (we love the navy and lavender together). A tie-neck would bring instant drama to the outfit (bows are a hot fall/spring trend).
  2. Tuck the blouse into a polished, grey pencil skirt. Feel free to experiment with different textures and maybe even subtle patterns, like plaid or houndstooth.
  3. Finish it all off with black accessories to keep things simple. Use a trendy wide belt to cinch your waist over the cardigan and slip on a pair of tights and modern buckled booties. The whole look incorporates comfort, elegance, and a bit of edge.
