Like many of you, I lived in boot cut jeans, lug boots, a basic top, and dressy long cardigans in the early 2000s. Rachel Green was my style icon in those days, who am I kidding? She still is! This year cardigans are more popular than ever! I can’t wait to feature all the trendy styles over the next few months as we start nearing spring. Today, I wanted to kick things off with chic long cardigans that will dress up any basic outfit!
The thing I love the most about long cardigans is they’ll look amazing with nearly every item in your winter wardrobe! With most of us still living in leggings, joggers, and loungewear, it’s always nice to dress up a little! I find throwing on a chic cardigan, a cute sweater, or my favorite gold hoop earrings a way to feel semi-normal during these hard times! How about you?
If you’re searching for a trendy long cardigan that will dress up your winter look, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 15 of the best long cardigans for women in every style and price range!
