Those of you who were not smart enough to buy a cardigan before the winter season starts is going to be in for a surprise. The reason why we are saying this is because wearing a cardigan has become extremely popular amongst men in their 30s, with dark colours by far widely accepted as an alternative to wearing a blazer. But what can be some good ways to style your cardigan in the winter?
In this article we will be discussing specifically the top 5 ways how men can wear a wool cardigan with jeans. That is not to say that you cannot wear a cardigan with another type of pants, but we will only be discussing a wool cardigan with jeans. Ok, let’s take a look.
Wearing a cotton cardigan is fine if you want to look similar to your peers, but by wearing a wool cardigan, your outfit will be enhanced and have a certain appeal to it. Colours such as black, light brown, dark brown, and greys are good choices to wear while wearing denim or black jeans. Keep in mind that you do not have to wear your wool cardigan buttoned all the time and wearing your cardigan unbuttoned is a good idea if you want to showcase your top.
There is no better type of pants to wear with a cardigan than denim jeans. While the colour doesn’t really matter, we believe that a regular wash denim jeans will be perfectly fine to wear with any wool cardigan colour. A good outfit that can be created can be that of a dark brown wool cardigan paired with denim jeans, black Chelsea boots and a plain light sweater underneath.
While denim jeans should be your preferred choice of pants while wearing a wool cardigan, we have to still include the widely popular black jeans. Perfect when worn in a slim style, a pair of black jeans can be paired with a grey wool cardigan and all black running shoes.
Because a wool cardigan is already going to keep you warm, there is no point in wearing a thick sweater underneath. Instead opt for a light shirt, but one that is still long sleeve. So a dress shirt, thin long sleeve shirt, and an Oxford shirt all good options to wear underneath a wool cardigan.
One tip to remember is that you should keep your shirt colour on the same theme as your cardigan. So if you were to wear a beige wool cardigan, then a white shirt would go better than if you opted to wear a yellow shirt.
Depending on where you live, you may not be able to just wear a cardigan by itself outside in the winter. If you are luck enough to do so, use your creativity and be bold with the shirt that you will wear underneath. Try wearing a dark wool cardigan layered on top of a bright shirt.
If on the other hand you will need to constantly wear outerwear in the winter, your options will be limited as to what you can do. Focus on wearing a similar colour outerwear as your cardigan, as this will benefit your outfit.
Because we are talking about a casual type of outfit, there are not that many restrictions on what type of shoes you wear. Opt for dark colours, with black leather Chelsea boots and all black running shoes being amongst our top picks.
