The wideness on top and bottom will make you look…WIDE. Instead, DO wear your skinniest pair of jeans or leggings. Keep those legs looking as slim as possible! Wrap cardigans have the same basic shape as a lot of the aztec cardigans that I mentioned previously, but they are usually more fitted and less bulky. They still have the longer drape-y length though. Even my knee-length one is too short to pair with this long cardigan. Instead, DO wear it with dark jeans or pants to elongate your silhouette and flatter your figure.
Those drapey lapels will create nice long lines up and down your figure. As much as I love boyfriend cardigans, the longer length does not work with full skirts or dresses. See how the hem of the cardigan cuts off my body right at a nice wide area of the skirt? Add to watch list Remove from watch list. Watch list is full. No additional import charges at delivery!

This is a super helpful post, thank you! While I already layer cardigans over dresses quite frequently, I still found some useful tips in here.
I shall stick to softer contrasts. I wear cardigans over dresses pretty much year-round at work in the summer when the AC is too high, and all the time in the winter…. I will have to do some experimenting with this. Maybe it would get me wearing my dresses more often, but seems this is more for the advanced YLF gal.
Thanks for the continued education! Rute, your combo sounds fab to me. Post a pic on the forum if you can. I kind of liked it. I admit I do struggle with cardis and dresses. I love cardigans with jeans or skirts, and just have bought a few dresses in the past year so will experiment to get the best look.
Thanks for the tips Angie! The weather here is perfect for a dress-cardi combo. I have tried a few of those you suggested but will join the fun of experimenting this week. This is another eye opener Angie. How could I get to be 56 yrs old and not know these important guidelines?
Dresses that fit and flatter my body are hard to find, especially since I avoid sleeveless. Thanks for the ideas. Despite the high color contrast, I liked the way it looked — both of the colors are kind of muted, and the necklines really worked well together when I layered the cardi on top. Or is that an entirely different ballpark? Will have to start my search for one! I think I asked for it in the comments section of the jackets over dresses post, and I appreciate you addressing it. Fortunately, there are lots of very long cardigans in stores right now.
Great tips, as always! It looks so sophisticated and the contrast in textures is so eye-catching. I live in cardigans as you know it so dresses are no exception. These are great tips. I have more time now since I submitted my thesis yesterday, yay! The proportions are really tricky — I have 9 black cardigans of varying lengths just to deal with this. Since finding the perfect jacket is harder than finding a great cardigan, I am more likely to wear a cardigan over a dress. Ah, the low contrast really makes sense.
Very helpful as usual, Angie — thank you! I was experimenting with this just this morning! I do like layering cardigans over dresses as it extends my dresses far into the fall season. I have one hip-length v-neck cardigan that works particularly well, but I do feel a bit like Aunt Mildred in crew-neck cardigans for whatever reason: This is exactly what I wore today. Red cardigan over a blue dress: Great to see all these great tips from you.
This is a great post, thanks for the info and example photos. And a colorful scarf to brighten my otherwise somber look.
These are great ideas, thanks Angie! Are they considered dated? I have a plain black one that I bought for a formal dress, maybe I could mix it in with regular dresses. A great post that gives me confidence that a pairing I had recently made desperation i is not a frumpy options.
Pairing up with my black boots, I wore it to work the other day and was amazed at all the nice compliments. I must now think some other options following your suggestions! Now, all I have to do is get a dress! A very, very enlightening post! Thanks a lot for this, Angie. Sometimes my layered creations are modern classic and at other times […].
