Gorgeous Long Cardigans To Wear and Enjoy Now

Cardigans are a staple of my wardrobe throughout the year. I even wear them in the middle of summer when I’m going in and out of restaurants. Plus, let’s be real. They are great at hiding upper arms. Cardigans come in all lengths, but during this season, I like them a bit longer. I’ve found some gorgeous long cardigans to wear and enjoy now. Some of these are long and some are loooooonnng. Petites, go for the shorter versions!

Gorgeous Long Cardigans To Wear and Enjoy Now – Longest

I’m starting with the beauty from Nordstrom. It’s 48 inches in length and has a wide collar and a front button closure. Here’s some good news. It’s actually sold as a two-piece set! The slip dress that you see underneath is included! I think this is super elegant. It is also available in black which looks very dressy.

Am I the only one who wears a slouchy cardigan some mornings in place of a robe? This fabric is a waffle knit and is between 34 and 37 inches long, depending on the size. The link has a ton of colors, so if you’re not a fan of the navy pictured above, no worries. Also, it’s got POCKETS. Yay!

How did I miss this cardigan before? I LOVE a cable knit, and doesn’t this look cozy? I’d wrap in this baby and never take it off, lol. I don’t see the length, but from the photos, it looks like it hits around mid-calf. This comes in several colors, including a fun hot pink version.

Gorgeous Long Cardigans To Wear and Enjoy Now – Longer

This reminds me of the slouchy cardigan I wore as a robe, but it is called a “sweater coat.” This is also a waffle knit and is available in nine colors. The length is around 42 inches. I don’t see pockets, but the side slits are a nice detail. Layer this with jeans or leggings and a cute t-shirt. Reviews say that it’s super comfy!

This is a super soft cardigan from Nordstrom that comes in both white and black. It’s around 47 inches long and is made of polyester, rayon, and spandex. This looks great styled with a cute pair of jeans and a short-sleeved top. You can be casual and cute with the right outerwear!

Gorgeous Long Cardigans To Wear and Enjoy Now – Long

This is similar to the comfy cozy cable knit above, but just a little bit shorter. Depending on your size, this is 33 – 35 inches long. One of the nice things about this version is that it’s machine washable. Wear this with jeans or a skirt and booties. There are 22 different colors available and it’s a great buy at around $35 dollars.

This oversized cardigan is ideal for wearing as outerwear instead of a coat. Unlike any of the others, it actually has a hood! This gray version is one I bought for fall, but there is a bright blue one available that would be perfect for a pop of color. If you’re looking for something more subtle, there are almost 20 colors in total. This cardigan is machine washable, and the length ranges from 38 to 41 inches.

Gorgeous Long Cardigans To Wear and Enjoy Now – Shorter

We’ve now reached the short long cardigans, lol. Sadly, they don’t give me the exact length, but it’s described as a “midi.” This is one of the least expensive sweaters at around $30 dollars, and it comes in fourteen colors. It’s also available in a range of sizes, from XS to 6X. I love the bright pink color, and it will be perfect for a dreary spring day. The shirt is from J.Jill and is 2 years old, so it is not available any longer.

Finally, the shortest of the long cardigans! I love everything about this sweater – the two different knits, the batwing design, and all of the available colors. Depending on the size, this is between 26 and 29 inches long. It’s not a bad price at $35 dollars, and best of all, it’s machine washable.

I love these long, longer, and longest cardigans. What do you gurls think? Are you a fan? Let me know in the comments below.

  10. Oh how I love a long cardigan!

  11. Delanie Collings says:

    Oooo, these are so comfy looking! I love sweaters! As for using a sweater instead of a robe, I have a sweater that I bought decades ago at Talbots that went with some of their Christmas pjs. It isn’t extra long, but I love to throw on that red sweater in the mornings when it is cool and I am drinking coffee and reading emails like yours. Funny, it doesn’t matter what size I am, that size small sweater fits! No wonder I love it!!! 😉

  12. Alexia Maben says:

    I like the bright pink cardigan from Amazon Essentials.

  13. Clarice Main says:

    Love the pink! And the sweater with pjs idea!!

  14. Kathleen McDermott says:

    Love all cardigans but long ones are the most chic. Elegant looking just with jeans. I have a boatload and always feel polished wearing one. I’m 5’7” but any height looks good in long cardigans. Pushing or rolling up the sleeves adds a nice touch. Great style choices in pretty colors – make for a foolproof outfit.

  15. I love the long cardigan look. But I am short, so not the best for me.

  16. Bonnie Brenner says:

    This is a stunning look. The models look trendy and gorgeous. They have the perfect body type for this look

  17. Karen Johnson says:

    Love these cardigans. Thanks for bringing them to my attention for spring

  18. I love a long cardigan. The hot pink is very nice! Putting it in my shopping cart now.

  19. I absolutely love a long cardigan and have a whole collection! I find them way more flattering than the shorter ones. Amazon has a long version that is made of a light weight t shirt material I highly recommend for spring and summer. It comes in a ton of colors and I think I own about a dozen! Perfect weight for the office, restaurants and hides my arm fat. Lol I always get a ton of compliments on them and they are very affordable!

  20. I have always love the long cardigan look. Love the pink with the floral blouse. Have a great day!!

  21. Love these but most are too long for me- wish I could grow a few inches

    1. You just need to order petite sizes. They will be shorter.

  22. Being only 5′ tall, I definitely stick to the shorter cardigans.
    Once when I was wearing a longer one, a not so kind “friend ” told me it looked like I was wearing my bathrobe!!

    1. Karen, that wouldn’t bother me at all. Lol! I have worn a bathrobe as a cardigan before. Lol!

  23. Love to wear cardigans & lightweight full zip hoodies! The long cardigan with the hood looks amazing, but am wondering if it’s comfortable — the Amazon listing said it was made of PBT, don’t know what that is! Thank you for modeling it for us! Looks so much better on you than on the Amazon model 😊.

    1. I’m not sure what that is either. Lol!

  24. I love long cardigans, all season long! Sometimes I hear them referred to as “dusters”, I wonder why?

    1. Maybe it is because some are so long they “dust” the ground. Lol!

  25. Stella Gustafson says:

    also to hide my upper arms I wear a lot of cardigans

  26. Love all the different colors!

  27. Krista Harendt Rogers says:

    I love love love long cardigans but worry about them making me look dumpy since i’m only 5’4″.

    Good morning Tania, after reading your devotional I know it will be a good day, thank you for always be so inspiring sharing The Word of Our Lord and Saviour.
    I am in love with these long cardigans specially Pretty Garden, such a soft green color, looks warm, elegant and it will be a fashion statement for sure, gorgeous.
    Thank you Tania for always thinking of ways to make us, young gurls, look beautiful, elegant and stylish at our younger years.
    Have a very Blessed Day


  29. Thank you for sharing this information about the sweaters. Do love a nice cardigan. Thank you for the suggestions!

  30. I love cardigans, I’m petite so I have to beware of length. I wear them over my PJs. I like hiding my arms as much as possible so the light weight ones are perfect. I will purchase the pink one. My question is what shoes to wear with them because I don’t wear heels.

    1. You know I love my heels, but I’ve been wearing flats and sneakers more often. And, in the summer, I wear a lot of sandals.

  31. Yes I wear a cardigan over my night clothes too, haha! Love a good cardigan and many good ones I like here.
