I have a longer black cardigan that I got from Old Navy and I usually pair it w/dark colored fitted jeans, black boots and wear a tank top underneath it or else a blouse that has a print... Also, you could pair it w/colored leggings and tall boots would look really cute! Don't forget a colored scarf, accessories are always a plus!
I just got a long sleeve, hip length black cardigan on sale at J.crew.
But I don't really know what to wear with it.
Can you give me some ideas?
I usually wear jeans and James Perse-ish shirts or dresses.
Does it cover your butt or not? I would wear a plain white tee, skinny jeans, a pair of tall boots and throw that over with maybe a belt of some sort to accentuate the waist a bit. But I wouldn't belt the cardigan...just the long tee that I'm wearing underneath the cardigan.

Reason: Adding something
^^ Yeah definitely. Belting the cardigan is a bit dated. Belting the tee and letting the cardigan flow is giving you a waist with a relaxed look. At the same time you could also dress it up for the evening depending on the shirt you wear underneath and the belt you choose, along with a pair of fitting slacks or dressy jeans and a pair of heels.
1) Going out- dressing down a slightly dressy-dress.
2) Wear to Work
3) Casual w/Jeans
*Avoid stereotypical colour combos w/ black (pink+black, red+black, yellow+black, etc) And use unique colours! (And more than one!) This will give the look depth rather than looking so colour-blocked and amateur.
*Add texture! A simple cardigan gets lost and can look messy if you're just wearing layers upon layers of cotton and boringness.
