For the most part I really don´t have a problem with being petite. I stand 5`2 but with high heels, I kind of look okay beside my tall husband. But there are clothes that actually make me wished I was tall. Long cardigan is one of them.
Seeing Rosie Huntington-Whiteley look stunning in a long cardigan with or without high heels, I was brought back to those wishy-wishy moments. Argghh! How I wished I could wear this piece as effortless as she does even with simple black tights and flats.
But … there is hope. I can certainly still rock a long cardigan with skinny jeans and high-heeled ankle boots with pointed toe. So don´t worry, girl, if you´re a petite too.
Here are more ways to rock the ever flattering long cardigan.
1. Oversized Long Cardigan with High Waist Skinny Jeans
First thing first, if you can afford it at $64, I really advise you to get this tan long cardigan. It´s one of the best cardigans you can find out there and it´s not even too expensive. It does not give away how much I adore this tan long cardi, does it?
Bring out your favorite high waist skinny jeans to pair with a simple white top and some open-toe heels if your toes aren´t prone to freezing, or some pointed toe ankle boots if you rather keep your feet warm.
2. Beige Long Cardigan with Black/ & White Combo
Still into black and white mono combo? It´s alright. Team up a white pullover with black skinny pants and black ankle boots, then layer over this beige, drape-y long cardigan for a soft contrast.
Ankle high is the best height for your boots in order to allow the long cardigan to lengthen your vertical line. Knee high boots will defeat the purpose. Although if it´s black pants on black boots, you can probably get away with knee-high. I wouldn´t vouch for it though.
3. Mauve Long Cardigan with Knee High Boots
I find this mauve long cardigan sweater really lovely. It also floats out nicely with black and white monochrome, and it even look so chic with mini skirt and knee boots. But I´m thinking of wearing it with a pastel dress and some pointed toe nude pumps for a dreamy, whimsy look.
4. Beige Long Cardigan with Distressed Jeans
Remember how distressed jeans are heavily trending for fall? Why not add elegance to your distressed look by adding this beige long cardigan sweater? It´s really made for the street.
5. Beige Long Cardigan with Leather Pants
Wondering how to soften a fierce leather look? Whether it´s leather pants or leather mini skirt, a beige long cardigan, which skirt swings and drapes as you move, will inject a hint of femininity.
6. Wine Red Long Cardigan for a Cozy Combo
If you´re a petite like me and an ankle-length long cardigan intimidates you, you can opt instead for a cardi that hits just around your thigh. I´m also a lover of boyfriend style cardigans so this wine number really earned my vote.
Now over to you, girl, would you wear a long cardigan the way runway model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley does?
