How to Style a Grandpa Cardigan...


For Christmas this year, my mom picked me up this adorable grandpa sweater. When I opened it she prefaced it with, "It's pretty big and oversized but I thought it kinda looked like you".  This got me thinking because I hadn't ever tried to style a grandpa sweater and honestly I wasn't really sure how I would like it. 

....But the verdict is in and I LOVE it! Funny enough, this is probably my most worn cardigan in my wardrobe.  My everyday style for class is usally a casual pair of jeans, tennis shoes, and a basic shirt. I've been adding this cozy cardigan because it keeps me a little bit warmer but it also creates a fun layered look.

A tip in styling a grandpa cardigan is to pair it with pieces that are a little bit more feminine, whether thats a ruffle detail on your top (like my peplum) or a fun pair of feminine shoes. Sometimes I think that grandpa sweaters have the potential to make you look like just that... A grandpa but thats something a few accessories can fix :)

Hope you enjoyed this cozy outfit! Sorry it took so long to get this post up this week, for some reason I've just been feeling a little un-inspired by my blog lately and I want to spice it up! Leave me a comment if you have anything you would want to see in the future. I can't wait for warmer weather when I can do fun and afordable spring break and summer looks!!

Love Always,
