Even though the low temperatures can sometimes take away our momentum, you have to admit that your winter wardrobe can capture your personality. You love the puffer jacket, boots, gloves and a thick scarf, but when it’s cold outside one of the first things you think of is a warm, cozy sweater. If you are a fan of knitwear, then the next post is dedicated to you. Below we will show you how to combine an oversized sweater. This trendy knitwear is a must-have for all fashionistas who dream of unique winter looks.
A cozy sweater is part of the basic equipment of every wardrobe. Although it is a casual and relaxed piece of clothing suitable for most seasons, you can easily spice it up with other pieces of clothing for a chic outfit. Let’s talk about the trends for winter 2023, what the fashion houses and brands are focusing on this season.
Styling oversized striped sweaters
Undoubtedly, each of us owns a sweater with horizontal or vertical stripes. The advantage of this is that it’s so easy to style because it’s a statement piece in itself. Plus size zip knit sweaters and your favorite pair of jeans are also great for an everyday look. The stripes make us look taller as they run vertically, so no heels are necessary. Just put on a pair of sneakers and you’re good to go. On the other hand, the combination with flat ankle boots can make the outfit even more elegant.
Combine an oversized sweater with leggings
Well-styled leggings can be both comfortable and classy. A longer sweater can be worn with high-waist leggings and thick socks for the ultimate casual look. Faux leather leggings, on the other hand, give your knitwear a fancy twist or create a striking contrast with feminine details like ruffles.
Style an oversized sweater with a leather skirt
Combine your comfortable sweater with a leather skirt of your choice: midi, mini or knee length. Usually it’s a black skirt because black looks perfect with any other color, but if you want you can welcome the season with a burgundy, olive or gray skirt. The design and look of the skirt is up to you – any oversized sweater looks great with it. Add trendy boots and gloves for a feminine and sophisticated look.
Trendy outfit with maxi dress and sweater
The dramatic proportions of a chunky knit sweater and floor-length dress instantly look high fashion. This combo is very popular in winter as it covers the whole body and it’s easy to hide extra layers underneath. For a layered look in winter, simply throw on a cozy oversized sweater over your favorite dress, lace up your combat boots and you have the ultimate everyday uniform.
Transform the oversized sweater into a dress
If your oversized sweater is long enough, transform it into a sweater dress by shaping the waist with a wide belt, then pull part of the fabric up so it slightly overhangs the belt. Complete the ensemble with opaque tights and leather over-the-knee boots. If you like, you can omit the belt for a more comfortable combination.
Classic outfit with trousers and knitted sweater
Balance the baggy shape of your bulky sweaters with smart trousers. Suit pants, tuxedo pants, and wide-leg pants add structure to an oversized sweater outfit.
Combine an oversized sweater with denim
The easiest way to style an oversized sweater is to pair it with your favorite jeans and sneakers. Need something simple? Try crisp white and blue denim – a combination we wear over and over again, but never get tired of. Especially when it’s an oversized sweater and a pair of comfortable jeans.
Tuck your sweater into a pair of slim-fitting boyfriend jeans or distressed straight-leg jeans for a comfortable look that’s just about tailored. Large sweaters go perfectly with skinny jeans as well. Wear an oversized turtleneck loosely over mid-rise skinny jeans and complete the look with ankle boots or platform boots.
Wear with a tulle skirt
Sometimes it’s best to just let an oversized sweater be. However, add some purpose to the look by adding dimension with a breezy tulle skirt. The pieces will balance each other out.
Add a scarf or jewelry
To jazz up your oversized sweater, add a scarf or jewelry. The right accessories, especially a statement necklace or bracelet, can dress up a comfortable, baggy sweater. Pair a long cashmere turtleneck with a long necklace that features a unique locket. Accentuate the neck of a cable-knit sweater with a jeweled bib necklace to add a touch of luxe to this classic, chic style.
