Cool Cardigan | A Modern Classic Closet Essential

A cool cardigan tops my personal list of closet essentials that pull an outfit together. Keep it current and you’ll see how this styling staple can work wonders on a high school graduate or your grandma. I’ve included a modern cardigan set and a modern long cardigan in my new Classic Capsule Wardrobe. A trimmed cardigan is one of 8 chic closet essentials in my 2023 Emily in Paris Capsule.


What’s a coatigan? Imagine your favorite long cardigan and coat got together and made a baby. The versatile style and ideal fabrication make coatigans one of the best layers for travel and transitional weather. The best styles are made with a tightly woven fabric that isn’t lofty and has enough weight to keep its shape.

The Perfect Weight


See all the outfits you can make with a cool cardigan in this capsule wardrobe. Wear one over bare shoulders on a summer evening or layered over a cashmere hoodie when it’s cold.

A long cardigan is on a short list of designer labels that give you the most bang for your buck. I shared this surprisingly affordable Gucci cardigan in this post last year.

If you’re having a hard time deciding if a designer piece is worth the investment I highly recommend buying the look for less first. If it becomes a go-to for you then you know the designer piece will be worth the investment for your wardrobe


Just like everything else this season, you’ll find lots of cropped silhouettes in this wardrobe staple. A V-neck cardigan is the most flattering and versatile. A cool cardigan set is perfect for a capsule wardrobe, like THIS, because both pieces do double duty. Don’t be afraid of the cropped knit tanks that are popping up everywhere. You can always button your cardigan and let it peek-a-boo out the top or layer it over a white button-up to do double duty as a vest.
