We all love a cozy knit sweater with an oversized silhouette, but it is important to pay attention to proportion when styling one so it doesn’t swallow us up. It’s all about balance. To offset the volume on top, pair a tunic length sweater with leggings or skinny jeans. Add a heeled boot to make your legs appear longer. Front tuck a chunky oversized sweater with on-trend straight-leg denim for a flattering look.
Thin, v-neck styles naturally create a slimming silhouette, while rolling up the sleeves or adding layered necklaces to slouchy crewneck sweaters will help draw the eye down. If you are petite, a more cropped style will help to elongate your figure or go with a monochromatic look. Here are my top 10 oversized sweaters you might want to consider adding to your wardrobe this fall.
