Cardigans are my favorite piece when it comes to work wear. I wear them almost every day and I may own them in every color possible. Cardigans are a great way to add casual pieces to your formal outfit. Throw on a basic tank with a cardigan, voila! you have your outfit ready for work.

Apart from regular gray and black colors, light blue is the most worn cardigan in my closet. The pastel blue color beautifully goes with both neutral and bold shades. The soft hue when paired properly can be stylish.

My favorite places to buy cardigans is J.crew Factory. Apart from that, I love Loft, ModCloth and Old Navy. The one I’m wearing in this post is from J.crew factory exactly this style but they don’t have them in light blue anymore. I have linked similar ones below

Here are 10 ways you can wear light blue cardigan to work- 6 neutral and 4 colorful outfits

With Neutral Shades and Prints

1. Light Blue +  Stripes + Black

The classic combo that never gets old.
