How to Choose a Cardigan?

Cardigans for women are essential wardrobe staples for the colder months. As the ultimate layering piece, a cosy cardigan provides extra warmth when worn over tops and tees. It also strikes the perfect balance between smart and casual. Before you add this staple to your collection, these factors can help you to choose a cardigan that’s perfect for you:

  • Style - Cardigans are available in different styles, from button up and wrap tops to zipped, open, vest, tunic and more.
  • Fabric – A knit cardigan can be crafted from a variety of materials with different textures and degrees of warmth. You can find chunky knit, cable knit, fluffy and lightweight cardigans made from fabrics including wool, cotton, acrylic, polyester, viscose and nylon.
  • Length - Cropped cardigans typically hit above the hips, a regular cardigan will end at the thighs and long cardigans can have a hemline that extends down to the knees.
  • Fit – Cardigans are loved for their looser, cosier fit. However you can find a range of silhouettes from fitted to oversized.
  • Colour – Cardigans come in a wide variety of colours and textures. Neutral tones are generally more versatile, whilst brighter options add a mood-boosting pop of colour.

How Should a Cardigan Fit?

When it comes to cardigans, comfort is number one. They should fit nicely across the shoulders and strike a good balance between being not too tight and not being too loose. If you prefer them with more room, oversized cardigans have a slouchier fit that will keep you warm and snug on chilly days. For more formal occasions, a slim fit cardigan can add a polished finish to a dressy ensemble.

What is the Best Colour for a Cardigan?

Colour is key when styling a cardigan with your other wardrobe pieces. Neutral shades are easier to mix and match with tops and bottoms for casual or formal occasions. White cardigans, grey cardigans and black cardigans are classic and can be dressed up with accessories. A black cardigan, especially with a long hemline or fluffy texture, is sophisticated and elegant for a night out. Pair neutrals with other neutrals and textures or contrast them with warm or muted colours.

If you prefer colourful cardigans, you can also find them in bright and bold shades, as well as patterns and prints, such as check and ombre. You can shop cardigans at Sussan online or in store. Browse our range of the latest styles and seasonal hues for every occasion.

What Looks Good With a Cardigan?

Cardigans can be layered over short or long sleeve tops, as well as other knitwear staples, including knit jumpers and knit vests. They can be dressed down with leisure wear or dressed up with your favourite denim, pants, skirts and dresses. Take a cardigan from day to night by adding a few accessories. A belt can be worn over a longline cardigan to cinch in the waist and add a touch of polish to your outfit, while jewellery and a nice handbag will transform your cardigan from casual to formal.

Should I Buy a Cardigan or a Jacket?

This largely depends on the occasion. Knitted cardigans are soft and comfortable which makes them a top choice when it comes to relaxed days but they can easily be dressed up for going out or to the office. Cardigans however don’t have the same structured fit that you can find in a slim jacket. If you need more definition for formal occasions, consider swapping the cardigan for a blazer or tailored jacket that will give you a sharper silhouette.

What Should You Wear With Cardigans?

Whether you’re off to lunch with friends, the office or an evening out on the town, a cardigan gives you plenty of options for styling with your other wardrobe essentials. Here are just some of your options:

  • A patterned cardigan worn with a plain tee and some jeans
  • A cardigan with a drape collar over a blouse and straight leg pants
  • A fluffy wrap cardigan layered over a crisp shirt with wide leg pants and a belt to create dimension
  • A longline cardigan styled with a striped top tucked into slim fit pants
  • A collared cardigan with a plain top and white pants for smart casual
