Hello, my name is Alicia Gibbs and I am addicted to twitter lol. I feel like I have to check in every 5minutes. During one of my check ins I came a across a tweet from @TerrysTwoCents where he posted 4-5 looks he had submitted for his #wearorpurge outfit of the day.
The first thing I noticed was that all his outfits included a blazer. I asked if he had ever considered wearing a cardigan, sweater or vest. He said he has not because he does not want to look like Mr. Rodgers. I can understand his hesitation; if you pick a knit that is to large such as a cable knit, it will give you the impression that you are wearing your grandpas cardi.
Cardigans are now a very trendy and fashionable piece for a man to have as part of his wardrobe. They give you a put together look while still being classic and stylish. These aren't your grand-daddy's sweaters!
This is how I came up with the post how to wear a cardigan for my Chico Fashion.
A cardigan can be used as a structural piece to tie an outfit or look together the same way you would with a blazer.
You are still able to wear a button down under with or without a tie. They can also be worn with a t-shirt as well, my preference is a V-neck . Cardigans, sweaters, and sweater vest can be worn with jeans, slacks or dockers and can be either dressed up or down.
