What we especially love about winter months is that we finally can bundle up in our favorite cozy oversized knitted sweaters looking warm and stylish. There are so many cool ways of wearing an oversized sweater that you simply cannot stop loving this versatile and warm piece of clothing, which is also among the most stylish winter wardrobe essentials an It girl needs to invest in.
From jeans and different styles of pants to skirts and even dresses, practically any garment can make great pairs with this comfortable and covetable item. Whether you are trying to create unique casual looks or want to take your feminine office style to a whole new level, here is how to wear an oversized sweater with different clothing pieces!
Many women associate oversized sweaters with shapeless “bags”, which might make their outfits appear slouchy and cheap. We dare to say that you are wrong, as an oversized sweater can look so feminine with day-to-day attire options, if styled correctly. It can be a perfect garment for creating romantic boho-chic and hippie styles, as well as an inseparable attribute of a casual chic look. The big diversity of colors and prints they come adorned with is another aspect we love about oversized sweaters. So when picking one, make sure to consider the bottoms you already have in your wardrobe, going for options that will be in matching styles and shades with your clothing pieces. You can always pick neutral colors, including black, cream, white or gray, which will perfectly go with any bottom, and in case you are looking for the most appropriate sweater to wear with jeans or darkly colored pants, shorts and skirts, you are free to experiment with bright tones and catchy patterns too.
Oversized Sweaters with Mini Skirts and Dresses
One of the cutest combinations you can create with oversized sweaters is matching them with girly mini skirts (preferably flared styles) or dresses. You can pick a printed casual dress or a slip dress topping it with a neutral oversized sweater for the ultimately unique and memorable looks. A pair of lace-up booties or classic shoes and boots will add the right touch of sensuality to such romantic looks. You’ll need to consider the events and the places you are going to wear such looks to for the right choice of shoes. Hats, bags and sunglasses can be other accessorizing details to perfect such outfits.
Oversized Sweaters with Leggings and Skinny Pants
In order to avoid creating bulky silhouettes, you might love to pair your oversized sweater with a skinny bottom, such as leggings, jeggings, skinny jeans or pants. This is actually the basic rule you need to stick to when dealing with oversized items: they should be perfectly balanced with figure-enhancing tight pieces. So if that’s an oversized sweater, keeping the bottom part of your body emphasized will create the most winning looks. Think leather pants, skinny jeans or monochrome leggings with slimming effects, avoiding printed bottoms. Ankle boots, leather over-the-knee boots or any types of boots with heels will be perfect finishing details for such looks. Adding a leather jacket you’ll create feminine and sexy looks. Such stylish combinations will make you look visually taller with enviable leggy legs, being perfect outfits for day-to-day casual looks in fall and winter.
