Best Long Chunky Cardigans

It’s leggings season! Come winter, leggings are my best friend. They are the only pant I feel truly sexy in. Plus, the comfort is out of this world. But when wearing leggings, you must wear a top that covers your crotch. I call it the “V-hem” (the V stands for vagina). I always tell my clients that when wearing leggings, as long as your top covers your vagina, you are good to go. When you wear long, cozy sweaters with your leggings, you really don’t need a jacket, but if you’re wearing anything thinner, you’re going to need some outerwear. My favorite outerwear with leggings are long chunky cardigans. They are warmer and edgier than a thin long cardigan. Long chunky cardigans also pair amazingly with bodycon dresses. Below are the best long chunky cardigans this season.
