ALL IN THE DETAILS: Hooded Cardigans

From walking to class in the cold and then sitting inside with the heat blasting, there is the struggle of cold sweating. I know I’m not the only one. So when it comes to cold weather, one of my biggest suggestions is dressing in layers.

One of the best pieces for layering is a hooded cardigan. With a bold patterned cardigan, it is easy to dress it up or wear it lounging around. This Fashionista has dressed it up with jeans with leather coating, heeled booties, statement jewelry and some fabulous sunnies. Because this hooded cardigan is so thick, it is perfect for the sunny, wintry days to be worn as a jacket.

The cardigan is awesome because there are so many ways to style it; it is super easy to dress up and super easy to dress down. To dress it up, I suggest wearing a loose and simple dress underneath. For shoes, pairing it with any kind of heel, bootie or boot will help give height.

To dress the cardigan down, wear a simple T-shirt underneath with your favorite jeans or leggings and some funky sneakers or your go-to boots. Since the cardigan has a hood, it makes it extra warm and cozy.

Either way the cardigan is worn, you can always add your own personal sunglasses. It will help give the outfit a one of a kind look.

How To: Take your plain white T-shirt and your favorite pair of jeans and experiment with any kind of bootie or knee-high wedged boots to create the look. Simply add your choice of a bold or delicate necklace and sunglasses for a casual-chic outfit.
