Hi, do you have cardigans and don't know what to do with them? I'm Wendi Braswell, style expert. I'm here today to show you how to wear that long cardigan and wear it correctly. I'm going to show you today this is a boyfriend cardigan. Now what that means is, is you stole your boyfriend's cardigan so it's a little bit looser, longer. A little bit baggier. But we are going to show you three ways to wear this today. This trend and look your best. As you can see with our beautiful model we started off with just a basic denim. Love it. It's a basic boot cut meaning it's not too big not too small. And some color because we have a black long cardigan. First we are gong to put the cardigan on. And as you, when you wear the boyfriend as you can see the sleeves are a little bit longer, you want it to be loose. You want it to be a little bit slouchier. So first this is one way. As you can see it's longer. So that's why the silhouette of slimmer fit really balances this look. Second way to wear it you can button it. And you never want to button your cardigan all the way up or down. It's not a current look so we are going to just do two buttons underneath the smallest part of her. That draws the eye to where you want it to look. Remember that ladies. And mostly for everyone that's right underneath the bust area. The third way is to up this long cardigan is a belt. We love belts. They come in and out of season. We are going to do this right underneath the smallest part of her. It's a larger belt. It's going to draw attention to her smallest part. Looks great, pop of color. Keep it long, keep the silhouette simple. This is how you wear a long cardigan. For more tips you can reach me at
