    5 Simple Ways to Wear A Long Cardigan

    5 Simple Ways to Wear A Long Cardigan

    But really, how many ways to wear a long cardigan are there? According to our Instagram findings, there are five, only. Period. Pink Martini's piece de resistance, the Stockport is a versatile cardigan, used as an outerwear piece as well as a layering item. If you've been wondering what to wear when it's fall in Toronto, (or anywhere else for that matter) a good ol' cardigan is just what you need. The credo of this piece is to convince you that a cardigan is all you really need this season. At least until the wind and snow take over. We're all doomed then. If you're gearing up for Fall season, you've come to the right place.

    1. Style it With A Turtleneck

    One of the best ways to wear a long cardigan in a casual setting is by jumping into a comfy turtleneck and a pair of boots. If your turtleneck has taken a hiatus, tell it to come back. Hibernation is over! Wearing a turtleneck and a cardigan may appear to be an anomaly but ay, it is not. Ensure that the two pieces have different textures to avoid bulk and encourage layering.

     

    2. Accessorize it

    We all wear the same six or seven pieces in our closet religiously and it's easy for the different looks to blend into one another. One of the six or seven items is probably a cardigan. Wear a beanie or a wide-brimmed hat for a laissez-faire look. Layer jewelry such as bracelets or necklaces to accomplish a boho chic vibe.

     

    3. Dress it up with a Dress

    Attending a dinner party? Get cold easily? Adding a cardigan will save your life. It's definitely one of the best ways to wear a long cardigan without making as much of a pinch of an effort. Who has time for that, anyway?  One of the chicest ways to wear a long cardigan is to layer it over a dress. The bonafide star can be worn with a work dress, casual A-Line or an LBD. There's nothing it can't do! (Well, it can't become a sweater).

     

    4. Colorfully Monochrome

    One of the easiest ways to wear a long cardigan is by going colorfully monochrome. Combine burgundy or moss green with a navy cardigan for slight contrast. The maxim that monochrome is boring and lethargic, could not be more wrong. It's not a choice made out of decadent laziness! There's definitely an art to dressing monochrome and looking like you made a conscious effort to feel your best.

     

    5. White Top And Classic Blue Jeans

    One of the ways to wear a long cardigan is to combine it with a white cotton top and blue jean bottoms. Opt for a jean skirt or Levi's 101, and enjoy the thoroughly digestible fashion. Thank you, Victoria Beckham, for bringing the 501's back last week, and thank you world wide web for bringing it to our attention.

    For more information on the infamous Stockport, check out the Somewhere In Between website. It comes in a vast myriad of fall colors suited for all personalities and likes.

    I Own a Million Dresses But I Only Use These Four (according to Carrie Bradshaw)

    Is shopping your cardio? Do you have a Carrie Bradshaw closet full of dresses? I thought so. Ever notice that Miss Bradshaw is not an outfit repeater? Are you a bit of a Carrie in this respect? Maybe you own a million dresses but only really use four of them. One of them is a worn out rag tied to magical memories! How did I know? Your horoscope said so. 

    In the event that you want to reduce your carbon waste, you only need four types of dresses in your closet. These classic dresses are versatile and figure flattering for all body types. They are not restricted to the Carrie body type, no need to worry! 

    A Shirtdress from Aidan 

    If you own a million dresses one of them should be a shirtdress. We’re not saying that you should straight up copy Carries look from Season 3, we’re not all as leggy as SJP. Regardless if you have legs for days, the shirtdress is key for a Patricia Field closet. 

    A Shirtdress from Aidan

    The shirtdress comes in multiple cuts and patterns. You can choose a straight cut midi shirtdress, an A-line dress with a belt in the middle, or a mini dress for example. The dress is easy to dress up with a pair of heels and a slick-back do or dress it down with a pair of sneakers and a denim jacket. Take a look at the Culture Smock Dress Beige for a Carrie lookalike vibe. 

    Big’s Dress isn't Little 

    The LBD isn’t exactly synonymous with Carrie Bradshaw, it’s a little simpler than she is. We’ve all heard of the columnists famous “I like my money where I can see it – hanging in my closet”. Adapt this attitude when it comes to the LBD. A good – dare I say a GREAT classic piece is something worth investing in. Carrie would agree. And girl own a million dresses. 

    Big’s Dress isn't Little

    The little black dress comes in many shapes and sizes. What’s great about the little black dress is because it will never go out of style. Even a trend based black dress is going to be relevant until it falls to pieces. The midi up dress in black is an excellent example of this. 

    Jack Berger's Wrap Floral Dress 

    Who doesn't love the wrap floral dress? The asymmetrical hem and sleeve lines continue to prevail in today’s biggest trends. Hopefully if you own a million dresses, the floral wrap is included. 

    Jack Berger's Wrap Floral Dress

    “It’s the rule of life that everything you have ever wanted comes the second you stop looking for it.” Girl, don’t we know it. The task of finding the perfect floral wrap dress is a hard one. If you find it to be impossible, settle for a floral dress or a wrap dress. Sometimes the best thing you can do is to stop looking for what you want and what you need will show up. Have you seen the Summer Breeze Dress?

    A-Line Dress stands for Alexandr Petrovsky 

    Ok, so this isn’t teeeechnically a dress. But it’s pretty hard to forget Carries J’adore Dior 8 shirt with a purple tulle skirt. Or the ballerina tulle dress. Or the green tulle dress. Do you think Patricia Field liked tulle? There's no other SATC quote that symbolizes the use of tulle, “It wasn’t logic. It was love”. If you own a million dresses and were alive in 2010, look deep into your closet. Trust me, it is there. Forgotten, alone, and afraid. No, terrified because 2010 was 8 years ago and SATC last aired 14 years ago. 



    The A-Line dress small on top and has a thicker skirt. It’s almost a ball-gown look that any shape and any age can pull off. It’s a great party dress you can find throughout various price points. Take a look at the Dorothy Skirt.

    If you own a million dresses but only use four, that’s a pretty nice problem to have. Reduce Co2 emission by purchasing dresses that you’re actually going to wear. Not only will you save dollars, but the environment too. The Pink Martini editorial team will leave you with a Carrie quote.



    “Maybe the past is like an anchor, holding us back. Maybe you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be.” 



    That old rag dress tied to the memories, throw it away and update your closet. Memories last a lifetime, things don’t.
