#Fashiontips: how to wear a cardigan

The expected change of season has arrived for everyone with the return of a chaotic routine.  Other than those enthusiastic people, fascinated by the autumn colours, there are others that gaze wistfully out of the window at the dreary view. During these days marked by sudden changes in temperature, the wardrobe still reflects our complete indecision: do we give in to the cold winter, or hold on to the last pleasant rays of sunshine? The wardrobe, still full of clothes that range from fresh summer fabrics to warm wool garments, highlights the beauty of autumn, a classical changeover season and the usefulness of the middle weight clothes that can be worn all throughout the year.

First amongst these mid-seasonal garments is the versatile cardigan, not surprisingly the main character of the last article of Laurent Le Cam, journalist of Milanese Special Selection. In cotton, wool or soft cashmere, the cardigan is since always a versatile and useful item, ideal to put on in the colder hours of the day and to take off when it becomes warmer.  It is important to choose one of quality and of the correct size, so as to have an excellent fit.

For the correct size, we advise you to observe four things. First of all the shoulder should not sag, the armhole must be comfortable, it should be long enough to cover the belt and finally it should be easy to fasten, covering well without being too tight. The classic extra fine cardigan with button fastening can be worn over a shirt for a casual and sought-after look, or under a jacket to be more elegant. Whichever outfit you desire, please remember that the cardigan can be worn completely open (except for when worn under a jacket) or closed, leaving the last button at the bottom undone. The comfortable version with a zip is available in different versions and yarns, but it is more suitable for an urban and contemporary style. So you can wear it with jeans or casual trousers to have a sought-after look, but we would advise you against wearing it with classic trousers.

In conclusion, the cardigan is a fundamental garment of a man's wardrobe, a passe-partout for all.
