When it comes to cardigan sweaters, I would guess that most of you prefer long cardigans as they have been trending hot for the last few years. However, I want to talk about how to style a short cardigan sweater today as these shorter sweaters have begun climbing in popularity over the last two years and I expect we’ll see a surge in popularity this spring. Here are 5 tips to style a short cardigan sweater, let’s check it out!

1. Tuck the short cardigan into trousers or skirts

Button up the cardigan and tuck it into trousers or a skirt. The higher waisted the better! This creates an empire waist which elongates your legs and overall makes you appear more slender. Plus by buttoning up your cardigan you essentially make it a simple sweater- you get two great pieces for one!

2. Unbutton the short cardigan (but not all of them!)

Another way to create an empire waist and visual interest is to unbutton the short cardigan, but remember not all of them. In addition, some unfastened buttons creates a more casual vibe.

3. As layering piece

If spring weather where you live is still erring on the side of cold, then layering a short cardigan underneath a thicker jacket is a great option. Short cardigan sweaters are perfect layering pieces that can easily be paired underneath most coats. I highly suggest you try to pair a V neck short cardigan underneath a suit coat for a both cool and sexy look.

4. Belt it!

The easiest way to give a short cardigan sweater instant shape is to add a belt especially when you want to create more shape in your waist.

5. Wear it off shoulder

Last but not least, do not wear too neatly. The most popular way among fashionistas to wear a short cardigan sweater is simply only show one shoulder especially when they are taking photos. This creates an effortless cool girl vibe that is perfect for casual outings.

That’s today’s introduction about how to style a short cardigan sweater in spring. Are you ready to try it? You should be!
