How to Style a Long Cardigan for Spring

long cardigan and tassel toteI will be the first to admit I’m almost always cold. In the summer, I’m that person at the office whose teeth are chattering in the AC, and who wears sweaters layered over cute summer outfits to stay warm. Even growing up I remember wearing a sweater around the house in the summer because my mom’s air conditioning always left me feeling cold.

There’s nothing I love more than being cozy. Even in spring and summer, which is why I love cardigans so much. I bought this brown one from Old Navy a few weeks ago and I’m loving this long cardigan for spring.

Sometimes styling cozy pieces can be a little tricky when the weather warms up. No one likes to be on the receiving end of long, side eye glances like, who’s the Eskimo in the winter coat over there in this 60 degree heat!?

Hi, yes. That would be me.

So, to balance the warmth of a sweater, I love the idea of cuffing or rolling my denim, finding a sandal, then adding a small pop of color for spring.

Those few changes take an outfit like this from looking wintery to saying somewhere along the lines of being excited for spring, but realistic about the temperature like, we’re not even close to thinking about shorts over here, but look at how much ankle I’m showing! 🙂

Happy spring, am I right?

I’ve linked a cardigan similar to what I’m wearing here as well as some other great long cardigan finds for springtime.
