Lovefool for a Cardigan

Lets talk about cardigans for a moment. I love them, but I do not understand why so many people attribute a cardigan to old people. I have a few co workers/ friends that always make odd ball comments about cardigans. I always get the old lady jokes, the librarian jokes(especially when I wear my glasses) in fact today I was told that I looked like I was dressed by an old blind lady. Lol I guess they just don't understand what a good cardigan does for a wardrobe! 

I love them. They are not too thick that you cant wear them in the summer time and they cover my arms from freezing in the a/c-d office at work. I'm always cold. I guess I don't have a problem with them because I used to wear them at school growing up so they've always been a staple in my wardrobe. 

I don't have weird patterned ones, they are all solid colors and very versatile  I love pairing a good cardi with a dress or skirt and a chic little belt 
like here 

with a t-shirt shirt and pants like this 

or even just the cardigan itself belted wear it as a shirt like this

 I've even seen a tutorial to add a cute little bow to sewn onto the collar of the cardi. 

So Ill continue to take the grief and wear my comfy cardi and be happy. Im a nerd and I dress like one most of the time! 

What are some ways you wear a cardigan and do you get old lady comments about it?
