Now that summer has arrived (almost!), it’s time to pack away those heavy winter coats and long jackets, but this still leaves us with a bit of a dilemma. When the sun goes down and it starts to get chilly, we’ll need something to cover up with, but how do we do this without lugging around a big old coat?
Well, one simple solution is to carry a cardigan with you. They’re lightweight, but give you an extra layer for those chilly evenings when you need something to wrap up in.
Cardigans have come a long way from those twin sets your grandmother used to wear, so if you still think that they are a frumpy, ‘old person’ option, then think again.
These days, cardigans come in all shapes and sizes, not to mention colours and patterns. For the summer, a cute, cropped cardigan looks great with floaty summer dresses, or opts for a colourful fitted style to bring some life to a simple t-shirt and jeans. For those casual days, or for when you need something a bit more substantial, opt for a comfy boyfriend cardigan. The extra material will mean that you have plenty to wrap up in!
The great thing about cardigans is that they literally do come in every colour imaginable, and it’s a great way of bringing a colour accent to an outfit if you think that it’s a bit bland. There are also quite a few different patterns now emerging which can help you to stand out in a crowd. Cute hearts are a popular option but the floral prints are also a good option to bring a summery feel to an outfit, as well as being back on trend for Spring/Summer 2011.
So, pack away all those jackets and coats and prepare for summer and update your wardrobe with a variety of cardigans, so that you’re sorted, no matter what the weather!
