I know “Aztec cardigans” were all the rage about 4 or 5 years ago. But, if you’re into boho chic, they never go out of style! So for this plus size on a budget, I found this fabulous cardi for under thirty-five bucks. It comes in sizes 0X – 5X. Woot! But, before getting into the details, I want to prevent some anticipated feedback. So please keep these things in mind:
- “Budget” is relative. Some people easily spend $300 on sunglasses, while other people allocate $300 for their annual clothing budget.
- You may be able to find these items elsewhere for less. These are just some “budget-friendly” finds I have come across. And I typically don’t link to clearance items because they sell out and then people are disappointed. Also, I have no way of linking to thrift stores, but obviously if you want to check out your local thrift stores, I think that is a great idea!
- Recycle & reuse. As with all of my posts, I hope that you can use pieces you already have in your wardrobe. Additionally, I assume that you can reuse all of the pieces below in other combinations with things in your closet to create a variety of looks. Meaning, I think it is unfair to judge the expense of one outfit as though that is the only way to wear the pieces.

And the Aztec cardigan is easy to style! Simply layer it over a neutral t-shirt, tank, or cami. Wear it open or belted. Add a pair of jeans. In this case, I chose black denim, but any denim will do! Add some booties with a Western vibe.
For the accessories, you can’t overdo it if you’re going for a true boho look. Layer on necklaces, bracelets and rings. I kept things more simple for the sake of being more wearable and sticking to a budget. I just added some large hoop earrings, a layered necklace, and a wrap bracelet. A floppy wool hat and a bucket bag complete the look.
