However, what’s emerged as a popular silhouette in the cardigan category for fall-winter 2019 is the long cardigan.

Now, to top it all, imagine you can take all these types of cardigans to the streets, back-to-school, and even to homecoming if you so desire. Don't believe us? Get ready to dive into the world of the OG comfy and chic.

2. Semi-sheer long cardigan

A semi-sheer long cardigan is a perfect choice to wear with casual separates. You can wear them over a simple V-neck T-shirt in basic colors and jeans, and finish the look with pointed-toe black leather ankle-boots. 

Take cue from Kendall Jenner’s airport look above. KJ has accessorized her look further with a black scarf wrapped around her neck. This surely makes for a casual-yet-dressy look. A simple grey cardigan can lend the perfect tomboyish look when worn with white tee, knee-ripped slim black jeans and white sneakers. If the temperature is sitting at the threshold of cold and warm, rather than opting for a floor-length, a calf-length light knit piece will keep you feeling snug without overheating.

3. Chunky Knit Cardigan

When the mercury drops, it’s a clear sign to pull out your chunky knits. This snug outerwear is great to add that final finishing touch to your regular street style, and of course, an ideal way to keep your body warm. From the classic knee-length style to floor-hitting length, you can’t go wrong with this chic layer.

Need more inspiration? Selena Gomez to the rescue. In this look, she’s ditched her much-favored dresses and short skirts, and worn a chunky perforated beige cardigan with black leggings and a striped t-shirt. Her outfit proves that long cardigans are indeed functional and easy to wear!
