10 Ways to Wear 1 Cardigan (including backwards)

April 18, 2016

My “comfy clothes” are the first thing I change into when I get home. Leggings. Bralette. Cardigan. Open Shawl Cardigan to be exact.

Removal of makeup is also a must.

Outfit complete.

I love wearing this simple cardigan sweater around the house because its enough coverage so that if the blinds are open I am not flashing our neighbor but still cool & comfy. It is made from jersey material so it feels so soft like bed sheets.

The other day I uncovered the hidden secrets of my cardigan!


I know I said I would not be joining the backwards shirt trend on Monday. Well, I am ALL for it, the trick is in the fabric. This fabric is amazing and I will show you…

10 Cardigan Styles You Need to Know

My favorite si tying a bit tighter and creating a off the shoulder neckline by just adjusting the shoulders downward.backwrds_cardigan_tied_open_shawl_bitemyfashion

You can also create a sweetheart neckline by pulling the sides down and wrapping the ends tightly from the front to the back.

There are so many ways to wear this versatile piece. Tying the ends to one side makes a turtleneck style and is very chic and fitted. backwrds_cardigan_tied_open_shawl_bitemyfashion

As a complete switch up I wrapped the sleeves around my neck and now I am on par with the neck collars of the season.backwrds_cardigan_tied_open_shawl_bitemyfashionbackwrds_cardigan_tied_open_shawl_bitemyfashionbackwrds_cardigan_tied_open_shawl_bitemyfashion

Neck tie crossing in the front creates a whole new look!backwrds_cardigan_tied_open_shawl_bitemyfashion

Can’t forget the typical front tie.10_ways_wear_cardigan_bitemyfashion10_ways_wear_cardigan_bitemyfashionIMG_2774
