To make an oversized cardigan look stylish, remember a few points:

Due to the elongation in the front, do not wear draped cardigans with shorts or miniskirts. It is important to emphasize and extend the vertical lines, so your choice is pants and skinny jeans. Heeled shoes are optional.
If you wear a long pencil skirt in the office, hold the drapery with a thin belt at the waist.
- Avoid frills and flounces, especially on a top or blouse - this will break the lines.
Such models, like the poncho, look like a light multi-layer cloak, so they are actively gaining popularity among girls. They also need to be worn carefully: loose fit can play a trick, adding extra volume on top. To prevent this from happening, a tight-fitting turtleneck, t-shirt or fitted shirt is put under a cardigan. Below - a pencil skirt, skinny jeans or basic pants with arrows. Ideally, heels can be added.
Try pastel color caps with pearls if you prefer a classic look. Such a cardigan will perfectly complement the sheath dress. In the fall, don’t be afraid to combine voluminous scarves with a cape, but be sure to remove the hair up to open the neck.
In 2019, such a thing does not leave the wardrobe of fashionistas. This is a great alternative to a classic cardigan - elegant, fits into almost any style. The vest sewn from thin knitwear in black will decorate an office set from a skirt with a shirt, walking jeans with a t-shirt. It is better not to combine such a cardigan with dresses, unless it is a case with a long sleeve.
With a dense product, it is better to wear a thin turtleneck and tight pants or jeans so as not to add extra volume to the figure.
- Color stylish models in the form of an elongated vest will suit slim girls and will become an excellent accent in the monochrome gamut of the office ensemble.
