The Spring Cardigan for Men

 

 

 

 

Jean-jackets, vests, blazers and trench coats! Who says women should have all of the fashion fun? Men’s trends have been taking off now more than ever, and I love finding ways to jazz up a classic item and giving a new twist to it. For men, one of the old favorites (perhaps a go-to item) but a damn stylish and sophisticated one at that is the cardigan, and I love these new takes on the classic trend!

These dashing open front sweaters are an elegant, casual way to pull off layers, and a good cardigan will even taper at the waist to flatter your figure (the same way a well-tailored suit coat does, only this won’t look so out of place on a Saturday).  These little menswear gems get their classy reputation from being named after the 7th Earl of Cardigan who rocked the stylish button-ups everyday, but enough with the history lesson, and on with the style session.

Plain and simple, I love the cardigans dressed up and dressed down. Sporting a tee shirt and jeans underneath?- I love it.  A collar shirt and a bowtie?- Amazing.  Did you simply swap your jacket for a cardigan while putting your suit on this morning?- Very smart!  There are so many ways to style a wardrobe staple like this, that the options are endless, and at the end of the day it is your creative take on the look that I love to see!
