Cardigans, the original love of my life and the easy way to style up a basic t-shirt or button down. One thing that a lot of guys do not realize is that there are actually multiple types of cardigans to choose from. Some things to keep in mind when looking for a cardigan this time of year…

Neutrals are best. The great thing about a cardigan is that you can wear it with multiple outfits, therefore, a cardigan should be neutral so that it will match shirts with prints and patterns without the outfit becoming overwhelming. For fall and winter, stick to gray, black, tan, dark greens, dark blues and maroon colored cardigans.

Determine whether it will be used as your outerwear or a layering piece under a jacket. Cardigans come in several fabrics, thicknesses and weights. When choosing a cardigan think about whether it will be prominently used as a layering piece or as your outerwear piece. For laying pieces buy thin cardigans and for outerwear pieces buy a knit or wool cardigan to ensure you stay warm.
