6 Ways to Style a Button Crew Neck Cardigan

The button down cardigan is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can have in your wardrobe. Because of this versatility, it’s the perfect addition to a minimalistic or capsule closet, where you’re looking to minimize the amount of clothing you own. These are some of the different styles you can make with the button down, and though there are countless ways to do this, I’m going to show you 6 ways to style it.

Buttoned up

One of the simplest ways to wear the buttoned down cardigan, you can wear it to add interest to your outerwear, or tuck it in to flatter your waistline. This can be worn on its own too.

Buttoned down

I’ve styled this one in two ways. Personally, I’d prefer it tucked in, as it gives me more shape, but you can just leave it untucked too.


This might seem strange to start with, but I think this works really well. Whether its a crew neck like this one or a v neck, I think it can be a unique and quirky look from the back if you like. It also means you don’t need to buy a separate sweater in the same color either.

Half buttoned down/ V neck style

I’m a big fan of the v neck look, so being able to choose this or a fully buttoned up look can turn it into a new item of clothing again. I simply folded the top edges inside the cardigan to give it this shape.

Front knot

If you like wearing more cropped styles, particularly in the summer, this can work really well. Again, this creates a whole new look.

Top Button only

Lastly, you can do the opposite of a v neck style and simply wear all but the top button loose.

You can see how versatile the buttoned down cardigan is. You can make a few different alterations to completely transform how it looks. I hope you enjoyed these ideas and got some inspiration for yourself!
