HOW TO STYLE AN OVERSIZED SWEATER

Tis the season of oversized chunky everything — because really, there’s nothing comfier than cozying up in big, soft sweaters. They’re the perfect thing to wear when it’s freezing outside and you just want to be warm, cozy, but still look cute. Oversized pieces can easily go from looking cool to frumpy, so I’ve put together a few pointers on how to wear them the right way. Opt for a shorter oversized sweater. Sweaters that are too long can make your legs look shorter, which might be great if you’re super tall, but not ideal if you’re short. When in doubt, tuck the front of your sweater into your jeans or pants. If you’re worried about looking too casual, simply add a pump or heeled bootie to elevate the look. It doesn’t have to be fancy—my look is still super casual, but it elongates your legs and adds some edge to your look. If you really hate heels, opt for flats with a pointy toe that will give the illusion of longer legs too. For more casual look wear it with sneakers to run errands.

This soft and slouchy pullover knit with a touchable waffle texture and cool dropped shoulders is perfect when the temperature drops. The terracotta turns you into a walking teddy bear. It is so comfortable and flattering, despite it being a little over-sized. Today is my first time getting to wear it (thanks, Texas) and I’ve already received numerous compliments on my sweater. Sleeves run very long though, but I think that’s the look. The bell sleeves are a lovely touch and I adore the thick stitching. Perfect for a fall and winter winery trip or a sushi lunch. The sweater is short and boxy so I don’t recommend sizing up. I purchased it in the terracotta color and it’s lovely – more a burnt orange than the red in the actual picture. the chunky waffle knit and oversized fit.
