Oversized sweaters are all the cold-weather rage and are perfect paired with leggings! Knit and leather leggings are hot this season. Fashionistas such as Olivia Palmero, Kim Kardashian, Lauren Conrad and even Beyoncé have been spotted rocking the oversized sweater trend.
The perk of wearing this trend? Total comfort. Nothing beats cozying up in a fab oversized sweater, as it makes you an ultra-comforting feeling, making cold winter days that much more bearable. However, it can be tough to wear this trend well, especially it can be so easy for your body’s natural shape to get lost in the waves of the extra fabric. So how do you avoid looking like you’re sporting a bed sheet? How does one steer clear from that sack o’ potatoes look? If done correctly, dressing for comfort while still looking completely fabulous is super simple.
Before your imagination goes wild and you begin thinking of Nana knits or itchy man sweaters that your math teacher would’ve worn, keep in mind that there is now a plethora of shops that sell mega-chic oversized sweaters. It’s easy to find your weapon of choice – whether you’re looking for a high-quality chunky black sweater, or if you’re looking to embrace the geo pattern trend.
For a playful, feminine look: try pairing it with a skater skirt, leather leggings and ankle booties to accentuate the waist. For something more minimalist, try a chunky knit paired with a white or black fitted skirt (leather, anyone?) and a chunky wedged heel. Loving jeans this season? These sweaters are fabulous when paired with boyfriend or high waisted jeans. You can layer with gold necklaces and accessories and sleek black boots to create a perfectly effortless look. If you have an extremely oversized sweater, never fear; you can wear it as a dress and pair it with some knit leggings and combat boots for an edgy look.
This fashion statement has come a long way. No longer is the oversized sweater destined to be worn during a nap, so it’s time to find your perfect sweater match. Besides, what’s better than looking fabulous and feeling comfortable?
