For the longest time, I shied away from purchasing long cardigans since I thought it only looked good on tall people. How wrong I was! Anyone can pull of the long cardigan – it’s a matter of creating a waist and giving the perception of long legs. This is achieved by (1) wearing a belt to define the waist if a monochromatic outfit or, (2) pairing a light fabric against a darker color and having it showcase where the waist is. The other key step is to elongate the legs by incorporating a pointy toe heel. Keeping these tips in my mind makes it easy to create this look and easily makes it one of my favorite go to styles.
