Dressy Cardigans for Women

Updated on September 9, 2014

Beautiful Dressy Cardigans

Dressy cardigans are a great way to instantly add glamour and glitz to your wardrobe! With the addition of a sparkly sweater you can switch your plain dress or trousers to a festive party ensemble.

If you want to add variety to your existing partywear, just add a sweater or two to give your formal wardrobe greater flexibility.

A dressy sweater can be worn over a summer frock to instantly make it into a party dress for the winter holidays! Pair your fancy cardigan with wool trousers for an afternoon fiesta or with a taffeta skirt for an evening soiree.

If you are into the club scene, a sequined cardigan or bolero is perfect for dressing up your existing wardrobe pieces!

Dressy cardigans can also dress down to add a funky twist to your casual outfit!

Protect Your New Sweater!

It is always so disappointing to find your favorite sweater stretched out of shape. They never seem to hang right once that happens.

Here are some pointers to keep your investment looking like new!

  • Fold your sweater flat to store. A tidy way to do this is to use dividers to keep the stack from falling over.
  • To hang a sweater safely, fold neatly and drape it over a pants hanger from the dry cleaners. Hanging from the shoulders will cause it to stretch, and when you put it on unsightly little puffs will appear over the shoulders.
  • If you don't have a pants hanger from the cleaners, slit a tube from a roll of wrapping paper and place over a regular hanger.

Where will you wear your dressy cardigan?

      I like them to wear to church or just about anywhere. Thanks for the tips. Especially on how to wrap the scarf. I was having a problem with that.

      You can take sleeveless summer dresses into fall and winter by wearing a dressy cardigan or shrug over them.
