Maroon Cardigan Remix + Ideas for Transitioning These Pieces Into Spring

Outfits with a Maroon Cardigan

A maroon cardigan has been a staple in my closet for the last couple of years, so today I’m showing you 9 ways you can wear it!  I know weather varies wildly right now with my city currently in 80 degree days while some of you are messaging me that you’re in -14 temps.  Most of these are styled for colder weather with tall boots and some with scarves to give you inspiration for the rest of the winter ahead. But some of them can also walk you through the transitional period from winter to spring transition, like outfits 4, 5, and 9 with floral prints or lighter tops.

Also, below each outfit, if appropriate, I will give you an idea for how to transition one of the pieces from the outfit into spring.  If you’re already thinking about spring, skip to those sections of each outfit!

Outfits with a Maroon Cardigan

Generally speaking I like to pair maroon with black, navy, taupe, and white for neutrals. As for color, I really like maroon with mustard yellow! I also like to pair it with similar colors like maroon tops that have prints—the shades of the tops don’t have to match the cardigan exactly, and the prints help break all that up to make it look cohesive. Lastly, I love pairing maroon with blush or light pink. I’ve done it with solid blush tops, but again I find it easier to do with a printed top instead.

The base of this outfit is a black gingham top with black jeans, so I used taupe accessories to “lift” the outfit a little instead of darkening it more with more black.  Not that more black would have been “wrong” or “bad,” but you know me–I like to mix neutrals.  🙂

Take this top from Winter to Spring: A top like this will transition well into the spring, paired with white or olive jeans and a utility vest or denim jacket.

I love pairing my maroon cardigan with my neutral based printed dresses!

Take this dress from Winter to Spring: This dress is lightweight and long sleeve.  In the winter I wear a camisole and HEATTECH layer under it to stay warmer (as described in my post How I Stay Warm in the Winter While Trying to Look Cute) , but not in the spring.  In the spring I’d pair this with a denim jacket and white sneakers or a utility vest and booties!  (All of those are spring staples from my recent Spring Style Profile post for Put-Together Casual Style.)

Here’s an example of pairing the maroon cardigan with a printed top of a similar color.

I really love maroon with navy, and a navy printed top is 👌🏽!  My top is a couple years old and long sold out, but I still get asked about it every time I show it.  There’s a similar sleeveless version HERE from Monday’s post on Put-Together Comfy Casual Style building blocks.

Take this top from Winter to Spring: Really, this is a spring top that I happened to style for cooler weather above.  It will TOTALLY work for spring!  I’ve worn it with jeans + wedges + a mustard yellow cardigan.  You can also try white jeans with a denim jacket and nude flats.

I seldom wear my chambray top even though it’s basically like jeans for your top half–and we all know how versatile jeans are.  Stick it under a maroon cardigan and pair it with any printed scarf!
