They’re back Cardigans are in this season, but instead of big and cumbersome they’re thin and light.
Tie Front Cardigan: The name of this cardigan is straight forward; you simply tie the front closed. It is a chic look and also comes in a variety of sleeve styles. Of these styles short and elbow length sleeves are the most commonly known; however there are two more that allow free movement.
- Dolman (Batwing): This sleeve is wide at the armhole and fitted on the arm, most people know it as a batwing because it appears most of the material starts at the torso instead of the arm. Well, because of this configuration you won’t have fabric clinging to a part of your body that requires deodorant. In addition, this also means less fidgeting and more time enjoying your wardrobe.
- Flutter: Unlike the Dolman with a wide armhole, the armhole is the in the usual place with a loose fit. As the name suggests folds over the upper arm give it that airy appearance, allowing you to move your arms without difficulty.
Knit: Since it is no longer winter the hip length cardigans may not be a good idea, so these summer cardigans are thinner, lighter, and have casual yet hip look.
- Open: More commonly known necklines are V-neck and crewneck held closed with buttons, however with an open front there are no buttons. The lack of buttons is done on purpose because garment is meant to be worn open. Any embellishment could come from a number of things, however this season ruffles or a draped shawl collar are all the range. Ruffles can be a delicate trim detail, or accompany a draped shawl collar giving the garment a causal look easily dressed up or down. These details are often combined or separate, but it’s up to you to decide which detail suits your style best.
- Cropped: This word doesn’t refer to the sleeves; it means the cardigan stops above the waist. This combined with the fabric’s light weight equals less sweat stains.
Cable Knit: A cable knit does look heavy, however this season there is no bulk. Along with being available in bright colors cable knight cardigans are also in style.
Flutter and Dolman sleeves aren’t exclusive for Tie Front Cardigans; any cardigan knit could be open with any type of sleeve. However, a cable knit cardigan will usually have elbow or short sleeves considering the current season. You’ll have plenty to choose from, but if you’re looking for something to wear over another shirt maybe a cardigan could work. The decision is up to you and with all those options out there any garment you choose is a stylish choice.
