I have been getting so many compliments for the Over-sized ‘pin’ Sweater I paired in an earlier OOTD. This inspired me to do start a new category of posts on how-to-style. first in the category is of course how to style those Oversize sweaters. Yes, we all have them in a corner of our closets. You feel they are too baggy to wear, or you may end up looking fat wearing them. It’s one tricky piece of clothing I agree- but when paired correct, it can be your comfy fashion staple. So I’ll try to put together few looks you can recreate this winter easily with those oversize sweaters.
The Key here is to strike a Balance. You can’t really walk around wearing an oversize upper and a baggy lowers -unless you wanna look like an Indian Tent. We strike the balance by keeping the lower half as skinny and as body shaped as possible. We all have seen the daring Fashionistas go ahead and pair it with absolutely anything. If you are in mood for some daring, I shall give you ideas at the end of this post. Keep Reading.
1. Skinny Jeans/ Leggings
This is the staple style you can pair the Over-sized sweaters with. This makes sure your lower half accentuates your body shape and you don’t end up looking like a shapeless balloon.
You can always team a plain sweater with a printed leggings that are readily available in market nowadays – like this.
2. A Pencil Skirt/ Midi Skirt
Now if you are the skirt kinda girl, or you want to try something new with your sweaters, team it with those pencil skirts you have. even better if you decide to get those minis to use. Showing your legs totally depends how chill the weather is.
You can always add up accessories to pep up the outfit. I shall discuss this soon.
3. Button Ups / Collared Shirts
You can team up your sweaters with any Button Ups to give a dash of color or even keep you warm enough. You can play with the Collar styles and Colors to give the style your personal touch.
This, to me, adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to the whole outfit. You can work with your footwear to make it dressy or casual. I’d go for an elegant pumps any day.
4. Full-sleeve T-shirts
You can keep yourself pretty warm by pairing a full-sleeve t-shirt in a solid color with the sweater. this is particularly useful if your sweater is not full sleeve. You can also dress up and play up with the T-shirt color and pattern. You can even team a tank top and give it a peek at your shoulders.
Now Comes the Accessorizing part I told. Oh how I love this. You may decide to pair it up with your skinny jeans and just walk out, but Hey! Wait! No Outfit is complete without some accessories to dang em’ up, Isn’t it?
1. Belt- I particularly Love this look.
2. Statement Neck pieces – Mix and match to your satisfaction. NOTHING is Over-the-board. go ahead and explore em’ all.
3. Chunky Scarf- I like em’ warm, I like em’ chunky. (Reminds me of Moto Moto in Madagascar 2)
4. High boots – you like em’ till your calves or your thighs, you can’t help loving them. Adorable stuff they are. Sexy too.
5. Pin up Bun- The forever Messy ladies – take notes. This hairstyle rocks with the Oversized sweaters. Keeps your face de-cluttered and sleek.
6. Beanies- Yaeeee…. Who said lazy girls need to show hair. Beanies are here. Oh I love wearin’ them myself.
SO, now that we have Danged up the Outfit and accessorized it pretty chic- Lets get out and show the world.
For the Daring fashionistas, You can try a few more options
1. Pair with a Maxi dress/ Maxi Skirt
2. Boyfriend Jeans & Heels
3. Summer Dress- Putting good use to those summer dresses. Who said we need different summer and winter wardrobes?
