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.
