HOW TO STYLE A LONG KNIT CARDIGAN

Good morning everyone, todays ensemble is based around this long knit cardigan from House Of CB. I find a long knit cardigan is a fabulous way to stay warm during those chillier morning drop offs during Spring/Summer. When the weather is not cold enough to wear your coat and not that hot that you can go out in just your top. This long knit cardigan I am wearing is just so warm and snuggly and feels like I am wearing my dressing gown! I find a slouchy cardigan to be my preferred layering piece of choice, paired with either a jumpsuit, shorts, jeans and a tee.

SLOUCHY CARDIGAN

Right lets begin with my off white Chenille slouch cardigan from House Of CB. This long knit cardigan is one of their staple pieces from their lounge collection. It comes in the softest cosiest chenille, featuring an oversized fit, long sleeves, turn back cuffs and deep pouch pockets. Ideal for layering and and a must-have staple piece for Spring/Summer. It took me a while to find this cardigan as I was on the hunt for one for a while now. The perfect long cardigan only existed in my mind for the longest of time until I came across this one. I wanted it to be long and fall just below the knee, I wanted it in cream/off white and I wanted it to feel comfy and cosy. That’s not too much to ask right! So you can understand my delight when the package arrived and I tried it on.

It feels so soft, snuggly and warm perfect for my morning drop offs. It is so easy to style specially for those mornings when I cannot be bothered. House Of CB do a gorgeous range of knit lounge wear, don’t have to take my word for it, just take a look HERE.

JUMPSUIT

I kept my ensemble simple here and have opted to go with my black jumpsuit from Femme Luxe Finery. This Nina black slinky off the shoulder belted jumpsuit is so beautiful. The fit is very snug and I feel like I am channelling my inner Sandy here. As I have opted to layer the jumpsuit with my slouchy knit cardigan this takes away from it being too dressy. I could have also paired it with some sneaker/trainers in white to dress it down a little more.

SOCK BOOTS

Moving onto my shoes and to my black sock boots from Public Desire. I adore heels and find wearing sneakers/trainers really is not my cup of tea. Therefore its’s very rare to see me in a pair, hence the reason I am wearing my sock boots here. Like I have perviously mentioned these sock boots have been on repeat and I am thoroughly enjoying wearing them.

BAG

Next and onto my my Rosie shoulder bag in black from Modalu England. With all its compartments this bag is just ideal for everyday wear. Love the brushed velvet and satin fabric which gives it that opulent look. Such a chic and elegant bag that can be worn across the body or carried as a clutch like I have done here. The wide straps are detachable so if you didn’t want them hanging off then you have that option too.

ACCESSORIES

For the finishing touches, I kept it simple here and of course started off with my trusted aviator style sunglasses from Carrera. These have a white frame which ties in wonderfully with my cream long knit cardigan. On my lips I am wearing Lime Crime Velevtines in the shade Teddy Bear, still not tired of this matt liquid lipstick. Finally on my finger I am wearing my gold cylinder ring from AUrate New York to complete my look.

    What a lovely cardi! It looks so cozy. Perfect for fresh early spring mornings. I like how you styled this long cardigan with a jumpsuit, that’s a great combo. The way the boots match the jumpsuit in tone makes for an elongating look as well. Brilliant styling. Something about this outfit makes me think superhero vibes, maybe the boots and the jumpsuit. Anyhow, you do look phenomenal.

    This look is so gorgeous! I love how sleek and sexy the jumpsuit is and the colour contrast between that and the cardigan really allows the cardigan to pop and dominate the look – perfection! x

    I love that look, it looks amazing on you and thank you for how you told us how to style a long cardigan. The only reason why I don’t ever cardigans is because they seem to touch or almost touch the ground. lol.
