W&D Style: The Floor Sweeping Cardigan Look

Fashion & Style


I’m excited to introduce my first style contributor to Wit & Delight, Alecia Zasiebida! Alecia runs the lifestyle blog Likes of Us and has incredible eye. Alecia and I have fun history- we worked together on her wedding invitations! We’ve become internet friends since then, and I’m excited for what she has in store for you all. You can read more about Alecia on the W&D About page, or over at Likes of Us.

I’m pretty certain I live in the same cardigan all winter long (no shame). So, of course these looks are speaking my style language. The floor-grazing cardigan is a great option as we (hopefully sooner rather than later) transition from winter to spring. And, the best part is I find it just as easy to throw on over your favorite pair of jeans and t-shirt combo, as it is to dress up with some fancy footwear. Either way, it looks attainable and comfortable – two of my favorite things. – Alecia

    So excited to see Alecia over here! A, you and I are thinking exactly the same today – yesterday I went shopping and bought 2 longer cardigans for the spring transition. I’m just like you, I LIVE in cardigans and sweaters all winter so I’ll have withdrawals when it comes to summer! haha!

    Good ideas on how to wear this piece. I have one but struggle with it at times. I tend to go for the short dress underneath. 🙂

    Seriously the best combo, kate + alecia. So happy to see Alecia on here, her style and design are impeccable.

    I have yet to get myself one of these floor-sweeping cardigans, but you know I absolutely LOVE them. Comfy and chic, that’s what it’s all about.

    Fabulous post, Alecia! I was way ahead of the trend… Bought my long cardi several yrs back. Probably time for a new one, good excuse to go shopping 🙂
