22 Long Cardigans: Cozy, Bohemian, and Surprisingly Chic!

Last season I fell in love with this long rose-print cardigan by Free People and I’m still wearing it weekly now. Not only is it 100% functional, it’s 100% fabulous, too. It hits about mid-thigh and is the perfect length for so many reasons. It’s cute with boots or flats for a cozy and comfy look, but has a chic and bohemian feel when worn with a more structured outfit. I love the pockets and fold-over neckline that doesn’t need any buttons.

And because it has proven major wearability over the seasons, I’m about to stock up on a few more long cardigans in new prints for winter and into the new year. I’ve searched my favorite shopping sites and rounded up 22 of my favorites below from high-end to low (price-wise). Will you be donning the long cardigan trend this season?

  • It’s in the Print 3 of 25

    Solids are great but the key to making a long cardigan fun is choosing a great print that will go with everything and will be the focal point of the outfit.

    This is the perfect winter white piece to add to your wardrobe, and with Forever 21's prices, you can get it in black, too.

  • Alternating Patterns 5 of 25

    Though it's a bit expensive, there's something I really love about this cardigan. It's cozy but cool and I'm hoping it goes on sale soon!


    April, May Sherry Hooded Cardigan, $484.00 at Shopbop

  • A Little Bit Longer 6 of 25

    While this is a bit longer than I'd opt for, I happen to LOVE this larger knit cardigan anyways. I think you could style it chic or cozy and you'd be warm and comfy either way.


    ASOS Long Cardigan in Mohair, $133.49 at Asos

  • Classic Combo 7 of 25

    This reverse-knit cardigan in wool-blend slub yarn has a great print in a classic black and white color scheme that will work with just about anything in your closet.


    Reverse-knit Cardigan, $69.95 at H&M

  • To Belt or Not to Belt 8 of 25

    I'm not really into belting them at the moment, but this lighter-weight long cardigan is cute worn both ways and available in two different colors. It's not as warm as the others, so you'll have to layer up, but it's still a cute option!


    Desert Cool Cardigan with Belt, $32.80 at Forever 21

  • Oh So Soft 9 of 25

    I would love to pair this with a great pair of boyfriend jeans and taupe lace-up flats for a cozy work-from-home look that's great to run errands in, too.


    Joie Wendi Boucle Cardigan, $268.00 at Shopbop

  • Your Dad’s 10 of 25

    This knit cardi comes in two colors and reminds me of the late '80s/early '90s, like it was yesterday. I can just see it on my favorite sitcom dads of the time.


    Knit Cardigan, $34.95 at H&M

  • Grunge it UP! 11 of 25

    This fluffy long cardigan reminds me of the '90s a bit and though it could go fancy, it lends itself to grunge really well (and the price is right!).


    Long Cardigan in Fluffly Fabric, $49.83 at Asos

  • With Florals 12 of 25

    I'm not sure what it is about the fluffy cardi that works so well with '90s floral prints and grunge styles, but this light-colored one is just perfect!


    Cardigan, $59.95 at H&M

  • Grandma Chic 13 of 25

    I have a soft spot for this animal print long cardigan, though the heavier knit and thicker sleeves seem a little "granny" to me. I wonder if it feels that way in person?


    Juicy Couture Wild Lynx Jacquard Cardigan, $248.00 at Shopbop

  • Classic Colors 14 of 25

    Oh, this one is right up my alley ... I think I'll buy it now!


    Three Dots Open Cardigan, $144.00 at Shopbop

  • Cool and Easy 15 of 25

    With a bit more length, you also get a more relaxed and bohemian feel. I do like this one, but so often this length looks robe-like.


    Free People Last Dance Duster Cardigan, $228.00 at Shopbop

  • Plaid 16 of 25

    LOVING the plaid weave on this long cardi, and the hood gives it a bit of a coat feel.


    Hooded Cardigan, $49.95 at H&M

  • Geo Print 17 of 25

    It's such a cute geo print in this open-front long cardigan, and I love the shape as well. This one may be a keeper.


    Comfy Open-Front Geo Cardigan, $27.80 at Forever 21

  • Rarrr… 18 of 25

    A great animal-print long cardigan by Sea ... pricey but cute!


    Sea Leopard Oversized Cardigan, $495.00 at Shopbop

  • Houndstooth 19 of 25

    Houndstooth is a classic pattern and this black and white long cardigan is one of those styles you can keep in your closet and wear for decades.


    Retro Houndstooth Cardigan, $24.80 at Forever 21

  • Curl up in it! 20 of 25

    This long cardi is more cozy and woodsy than chic, but I just want to curl up in it with a cup of coffee in the morning and tea in the evening.


    Free People Buttermilk Biscuit Cardigan, $168.00 at Shopbop in three colors

  • Bohemian Print 21 of 25

    I LOVE this one, as I think it's the exact shape and style of the one I already have. I wish they had it in more prints because I'd buy them all.


    Free People Winters Day Cardigan, $168.00 at Shopbop

  • It’s Your Boyfriend’s 22 of 25

    Cute and wintery, this long cardi has a hint of a 1950's feeling, as if your intellectual boyfriend wrapped it around you when it became chilly at night.


    BB Dakota Marilyn Oversized Cardigan, $88.00 at Shopbop

  • Duster 23 of 25

    Another duster style cardi that is totally wearable and totally affordable, too. Just layer up with this one, as it may be thin.


    Well-Traveled Duster, $44.80 at Forever 21

  • Scarf Illusion 24 of 25

    I like the alternating pattern on this one, as it almost gives the illusion you're wearing an alternate patterned scarf with it.


    BB Dakota Rolly Cardigan, $88.00 at Shopbop

  • Coming up Roses 25 of 25

    Just one last look at mine because I LOVE the fit and style of it.
