3 Ways to Wear an Oversized Sweater

September 17, 2013

The oversized sweater is a staple in any Fall/Winter wardrobe. To create a flattering and balanced silhouette, consider pairing the sweater with a tight bottom. Below are three different ways I’ve paired the oversized sweater. Which one is your favorite?

1. Oversized Sweater w/ Skinny Jeans

If you are petite like me, wearing an oversized sweater with skinny jeans and tall fitted boots can help make you look taller.

2: Oversized Sweater w/ Pencil Skirt

Pair with a pencil skirt & patent leather handbag for an elegant, sophisticated look.

    Not sure which one I like the most. The pink jeans are nice with those sweet chocolate brown boots. That is a beautiful blue skirt to go with those chic pumps. Not too fond of the shorts in the final look, but I do like the cowboy-like booties. Three outfits with the constant being the nice sweater. Nice one!
