Let’s face it, ladies. When you look good, you feel good. Showing off your style is the perfect way to let the world know how confident you feel, and what makes it even better is when you can add your personality into the mix. We’re breaking down the differences and showing you how we styled our favorite Kimono Open Sleeve Cardigans.

One of the hottest trends as we move into spring is the cardigan. Throwing it on for work or for play can make your entire outfit.

Two Spring Looks We Love:

How to Style Kimono Sleeve Cardigans + Classic Cardigans

But What’s the Difference?
Kimono sleeve cardigans are usually made to be more flowy and loose fitting, not just in the sleeves, but typically in the overall design of the garment also.

Classic cardigans are more classic timeless, and some have a zipper or buttons up the front, or if they’re designed as an open front cardigan, the overall fit is slightly more form fitting and sure to hug those gorgeous curves.

How to Style?

Kimono sleeve cardigans give you more of a fun and flirty look. You can throw on a kimono cardigan with a killer pair of heels, ripped jeans, or faux leather leggings for a night out with the gals. We’ve also styled it with dresses (scroll down). If you want to wear it to work, pair it with a classic staple tank and some nice dress pants or leggings.

A classic cardigan is perfect for the office or more formal events. For classic cardigans, a look we love is layering with your best pearls or other favorite statement pieces. To make your classic cardigan a little more fashion forward, try adding a colorful scarf or folding up the sleeves to show a little skin and add your favorite watch or bracelets (or both).

When it comes down to picking a favorite, we just can’t decide. We love the timeless elegance a classic cardigan brings to any outfit, yet we also love mixing it up with a kimono sleeve cardigan for an edgier look. Here are some of our top picks:
