Long black cardigans are a must-have in every wardrobe. They offer classic style as well as practicality to any look. The cardigan is one of the most versatile and universal pieces of clothing and can be worn casually for everyday use, or made more stylish for more formal occasions.

The basis of any man’s long black cardigan should be a quality piece of material. Cotton is a timeless and reliable fabric that never goes out of style.

It doesn’t matter if you’re buying a black cardigan to wear with a suit or a shirt in the morning, or because you’re going on a date, cotton will always get the job done. Cotton mens cardigan is also a great option for women who are allergic to leather – it can be used with bare legs to create a classic sheath look, without the danger of irritation.

A knitted black sweater is also a classic option and is also a great option for those allergy sufferers. Knitting is also very fashionable at the moment, so many people are opting for this type of style over all others.

Woven materials are also very stylish these days, so look for a design that has been inspired by the latest fabrics. A cashmere sweater is a classic example of how a knitted garment can be modern and classic at the same time. You’ll find many styles that are knitted, including stripes, paisley patterns and cable.

If you’d prefer a bit more structure in your cardigan, why not try a shawl collar? They can be very classic and elegant, and they give the impression that the men’s long black cardigan is really a sweater in the first place.

They are available in a wide range of different styles, including distressed and unshorn ends. Shorn ends can really dress things up – try wearing them with a linen blazer for a smart and flattering look.

If you’re thinking about something a little more upscale, then a polished silk cardigan might just do the trick. These tend to be made from a heavier, more durable fabric so that you can wear them more than once before they need to be ironed. A smooth silk long black cardigan will never lose its soft and silky texture, and it has the added benefit of being extremely insulating – even in warmer weather!

Men’s long black cardigan styles can be further refined with a few more details. You might consider adding a lining and buttons to the front. Contrast stitching can give a little something extra to a design, and sometimes just a line of contrasting coloured stitching around the collar will do the trick.

A simple square neck with a plain or contrasting coloured lining is a great and simple way to keep the look simple and uncluttered and easy to wear.

Mens long black cardigan styles are as versatile as their wonderful versatility. Take your time with this one.

Experiment with different elements to see what works for you, then build on that for your final look. Enjoy!
