I love cardigans. I probably own about ten in various colors (but at least three staple black ones). I’m lucky enough to work in a casual office where wearing a cardigan is absolutely acceptable, so I probably add one to my look at least three times a week. Generally, I dress fairly preppy, but I also try to deviate from the overly-preppy-kinda-buttoned-up look that cardigans can so easily give off. Below are three ways I style cardis without looking buttoned-up. Try adding bold patterns and prints, wearing a neon cardigan, or adding platform pumps. No girl looks uptight in a platform pump, right?
