Anyone can wear a long cardigan. If you’re worried that it’s going to overwhelm your frame, there are other things you can do to streamline the rest of your outfit so that it balances out the sweater (like wearing heels and skinny jeans). If you’re curvy or plus-size and you feel like a giant cardigan is going to make you look too wide, just choose one that is more fitted rather than bulky. But honestly, you don’t need to worry about either of those things, in my opinion at least!
