One way to style an oversized sweater

Big and baggy sweaters are all the rage this season. I would like to show you one way to wear such a sweater without looking as if you are swallowed by it.

When choosing such sweaters we think that „the bigger and baggier, the better“, but actually that is wrong – if it’s too big we will start looking like a huge sack. If we want to be chick and trendy, we should make good size decisions and stick closer to our standard size for sweaters, because they are anyway purposely designed to be oversized.

As an oversized knit will inevitably make you look bigger than you actually are, the easiest way to solve that is to combine it with form-fitting or narrow bottoms – for instance skinny jeans, leggings, narrow pants, over-knee socks or over-the-knee boots. I personally prefer to wear it on its own without pants or leggings below it.

 And to avoid getting lost in this big clothes, we should show some skin – might that be a more generous décolletage or some bare leg. 

I combined my oversized black sweater with a pair of black over-the-knee boots. This I matched with my favourite NA-KD coat and some black accessories – a H&M cat hat and a black smiley Bershka bag, in a fashionway.

Why not?

This week the temperature outside is sub-zero, there is the ongoing lockdown, but a why not a walk outside, when properly dressed, of course. My pictures today are from Stadtpark in Vienna – a favourite place of mine for a stroll.

A thick coat and a sweater, warm pants and good shoes and… what else… a cute beanie! I am once more with my winter NA-KD coat, a C&A sweater, faux leather pants from Calzedonia, a great pair of high combat boots matched with a bag from Zara and of course everything combined in a fashionway.

Cream colors layering

Now that it is so cold in Vienna, I really need a thick coat and this NA-KD one is one of my best choices – I just love it. Not only is it super warm and fluffy, but it’s also in one of my favorite colors this season. And the rest of this outfit I also matched in the same cream palette. I combined it with this great looking one-shoulder Zara sweater, white Gucci jeans and beige velour boots. I love layering up for the cold days and matching up similar light colors. To finish the outfit off I went for black accessories – one of my favorite Pinko bags, a black beanie and gloves, both decorated with cream pearls, I hope you like it!
