Need something to cover up with but don’t want to feel weighted down like you do with a heavy coat or jacket? Try a knitted maxi cardigan from Free People as your cover up of choice this season. The maxi cardigan is the perfect piece to play around with volume, length, color, texture, and pattern because there is so much more fabric to do it with! The longer length of maxi cardigans is a fun way to experiment with proportion. Throw a maxi cardigan over a shorter mini dress, tights, and your favorite pair of ankle boots. Because you are going all out with length with a maxi cardigan, go all out with patterns and prints, as well. Wear maxi cardigans in your favorite pattern or try something new, like leopard print, a Navajo pattern, cable knit, stripes, or a fresh take on the Fair Isle pattern.
