Inching into fall with an olive green long cardigan.
Long cardigans are another trend I’m loving for fall because of the drama they lend to a look. Bonus: major coziness. You guys know my love for olive green runs deep, so it was a split second add-to-cart moment when I spotted this long cardigan on the Forever21 site. (This is a great dupe and it’s on sale at ASOS.) A super lightweight knit means I can layer it over bare legs right now while KC still warms up in the afternoons, and later it will be great as a dramatic topper to a leggings + boots outfit combo. I slipped it on over a basic (and pretty summery) t-shirt dress. A body chain and a chain choker set gave this look the little 90’s oomph I’m into these days, and a pair of much-loved brown suede ankle boots anchored it for fall.
I’ve picked up four new long cardigans in preparation for fully embracing cozy knits as a key piece of my fall wardrobe. I’m going to be relying on the trend to cozy up office outfits as well as add some interest to dressed-up looks. Tip: if you’re short, either wear a heeled boot with the look or choose a cardigan that hits at mid-thigh vs. mid-calf. (I really like this version.) Long cardigans for the win in the fall trend department, that’s for sure. Want more fall trends? Check out my Ten Take blogger pals below for their faves.
