Few things are as versatile as a cardigan, and this one will get you through winter in style. Right now, the temperatures are dropping across the states, so even though we are thinking about spring's fabulous fashions, we can't wear sleeveless just yet--- say hello to your new best friend (and Must Have) the cardigan.

No matter what you're style, there is a cardigan for you. It's all about how you style it too. Chunky jewelry, a bold striped scarf, or a wide belt over the sweater, can make any knit cardigan a fashion DO. 

Not sure what cardigan will work on your body type? Fear no more, here are a few tips to determine which cardigan will work for you!

PETITE. Stick to fine knits that don't overwhelm. Remember it's about balance. Also, embrodiery can definitely flatter your tiny frame. Avoid chunky cable knits, they will drown you.

CURVY. Women with a fuller figure must proceed with caution when choosing a sweater to prevent adding bulk. Detailing or shawl collar can make the eyes go upwards and take attention off the hips and thighs. Belts are also key for girls with curves, enhance your lovely lady lumps and create a waistline!

PEAR SHAPE. Textures are your friend. Think ribbing and vertical woven knits that fall in the middle of your bum to avoid creating width visually. Avoid large pockets or a sloppy drape!

BOYISH.  Stripes or Bust! If you are bustless and have no hips, patterns are your new bestie of the season. Try trims like furs, laces, or studs, embellishments can create the illusion of shapes. Wrap cardigans work great and can really rev up a curveless shape.
