1 Yellow Cardigan Styled 12 Different Ways

Cardigan season is almost here! The temps are supposed to start dipping at any moment now, and we can finally don our cute cardigans again. Not that the warm temps stop me from wearing mine, I almost always carry a cardigan with me, as you never know when the air conditioning will be on too high or the night a little chilly.

My yellow cardigan has been a staple in my closet for over 5 years now. It’s actually become a bit of a joke with some of my friends on Instagram how often I feature it. But hey, it’s comfortable, soft, clearly very durable and VERY versatile.

I thought for this post it would be fun to take a look at the various ways I’ve styled it over the years. This cardigan (plus the 15 or so other colors it comes in) is currently on sale! So, check out all the different ways you can style it below, and then click here to shop it! (I’ll start with the most recent outfits and work my way to the oldest outfits – enjoy my varying hairstyles as well, haha.)
