Fall TrendsThe Cool-Guy Way to Wear a Cardigan This Fall
Edgar Ramirez shows you the way.
Venezuelan actor Edgar Ramirez has the market cornered on casual, gentlemanly style. If you want to wear classic menswear staples without looking stuffy, he’s your guy. Take his treatment of the cardigan sweater, for example. While some guys might think of the cardigan as a staple only hipsters and 80-year-olds should wear, Ramirez proves that, worn the right way, it can make you look like an Italian style legend. Elegant. Masculine. Timeless. And all of the other adjectives you want people to use when they describe you.
Here’s what he did right. For one, he used it to elevate some neutral-color basics instead of making it the finish on already complicated outfit. For another, the sweater fits just right. Like everything else he’s wearing, it’s giving him a little bit of room to breathe without swallowing him up. And finally, he didn’t button it up too much. You want to treat a cardigan like you treat a suit jacket—never use all of the buttons provided to you.
If you’re looking for a way to update your wardrobe for fall without giving your closet a complete overhaul, you’d be wise to add a cardigan like this to your cart. Wear it just like Ramirez to the office, assuming your office is somewhat casual, or to the movies with someone you're not quite in hoodie territory with.
