Chunky Cardigans for Fall

October 24, 2016

Chunky Cardigan
Cardigan: Forever 21 / Dress: Brandy Melville / Boots: Madden Girl / Hat: Sammydress / Bag: Forever 21

I'm back from Maine and am kicking off the outfit posts with this look featuring my new cardigan I can't get enough of! Cardigans are another fall essential of mine and always look great with any outfit. One my favorite things about fall is that you have endless layering options with your clothes. For this look I started with an easy t-shirt dress with tights and layered a chunky cardigan over it. This outfit channels the vibes I was getting from the locals and college students in Bar Harbor which were along the lines of a rugged, rustic, outdoors look. I pretty much live in sweaters and cardigans in the fall and winter so be sure to shop my top cardigan picks similar to this one at the end of this post!

Cardigan Dress Fall

Bar Harbor Style

My cardigan collection was pretty grim, so I was on the hunt for some new ones to take to Maine with me. I scored this one and another for around $20 each at Forever 21, a store I recommend for affordable sweaters. I was so surprised at the quality and warmth of this cardigan in particular. The temperatures up in Maine were around 60-70 degrees, with a few gloomy and chilly days in between and this kept me pretty warm all day into evening without a coat! I also love that it has big pockets.

*Shoutout to my dad for snapping my photos for me. It was so funny to watch the tourists stare at me thinking, why is she posing in front of this gift shop?? Hahahah.

What do you think of this outfit? Do you like wearing cardigans in the fall and winter?
