How Men Can Properly Layer A Cardigan In Fall & Winter

Deciding to wear a cardigan is not a simple decision to make. First of all, you need to decide the best type of cardigan for your outfit. Maybe wearing a thicker type of cardigan would be best because of the cooler temperatures, but what about overheating in your down filled parka? You see, this is why men tend to ditch the cardigan in favour of just a stylish sweater or layer with a blazer.

Let’s take a look at some ways how to properly layer a cardigan in the fall and winter to create the best outfit possible.

Wool Cardigan

It is important to understand that this type of cardigan is very warm and thus special attention needs to be payed to what you will wear underneath. Opt for a lighter shirt such as only a button down collar shirt or a t-shirt. You can either wear jeans for a cool casual look of dress pants for a more dressed up outfit. Pair with stylish loafers or dress shoes.

Cotton Cardigan

This is the most common type of cardigan you will come across in the stores. You can expertly layer this cardigan on top or a dress shirt and tie outfit and also over a solid colour v-neck sweater. Choose a dark colour such as navy blue or black if you will be wearing this cardigan into the workplace.

Cardigan WithA Zip

A cardigan with a zip will go great with any evening outfit that incorporates jeans. You can either wear a solid colour button down shirt underneath or a plain t-shirt. You do not want to wear any type of patterned shirt under this cardigan as this will not look good.
