How to Style Cardigans for Autumn, According to 6 It Girls

Right now, fashion people are separated into two camps: those who dread putting away all their favourite summer clothes and those who revel in the arrival of sweater weather. I, for one, am firmly in the latter category. I hate being a sweaty mess all summer, so I always look forward to fall's crisper weather. Oh, and it doesn't hurt that I have my birthday, Halloween, and Thanksgiving to look forward to.

I have an extensive cardigan collection, but sometimes, I'm tempted to throw them on with my basic white tees and jeans. Boring! Below, I rounded up six chic ways It girls are styling cardigans right now. I hope you come away inspired and ready to take on autumn. 

1. With a Matching Skirt

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 13 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
