Men and women wear cardigans buttoned up or open as a layering fashion piece. Cardigans also look fashionable under a sports jacket for men or heavier coat for women in cold weather.
Cardigan sweaters are versatile and can be dressed up or down to fit a casual or career-friendly look. Adding a belt to cinch a waist works to accessorize for both men and women. Tying the cardigan sweater sleeves together around the shoulders or waist is also very popular. Cardigans may be worn slim or baggy, depending on the desired silhouette and layering style. According to Lucky Mag, the cardigan is fashion-friendly throughout all seasons, including summer, and most popular during the fall and spring.
