It’s officially sweater weather season, guys! Yes, that moment we’ve all been waiting for. The weather is slowly but surely creeping it’s way into the lower numbers and if you’re like me, you’ve already pulled out your favorite sweaters and started looking for new ones to add to your collection. There’s all kinds of sweaters. Cropped sweaters, knit sweaters, cashmere, wool, vintage, distress and let’s not forget the ever so comfy slouchy sweater. Slouchy sweaters can be tough to find because stores only carry a few, if any at all. A piece of advice would be to buy sweaters from the men’s section one size up, or the women’s section 2-3 sizes up depending on how you’d like it to fit. Since you’ve up-sized you always want to either tailor the sweater to fit your wrists or roll the sleeves. All of these tips would be such a waste without some inspiration so here are 4 ways that you can wear a slouchy sweater this fall.
Over a Maxi
Pairing a slouchy sweater with a simple maxi skirt or dress is the definition of cute and comfy. This is especially great for those days when you just want to be unrestricted but still protected from the cool air.
As a Dress

Sweater dresses aren’t just for toddlers anymore. A sweater dress is this season’s shift dress. Effortless, stylish and most of all, comfortable. Regardless of if you have an actual sweater dress or an over-sized dress, you can style it up in any way and look fabulous.
This combo is Fall and Winter’s version of the go-to t-shirt and jeans. The key to wearing a sweater with jeans is to define the waist with a nice belt, especially if you’re going for a looser silsilhouette like boyfriend jeans.
Add a Collared Shirt

Remember when removable collars were a big thing a few years ago? Bring those babies out of storage and dust ’em off because it’s time to layer, or at least look like you’re layering.
