Dec
01

Sweater weather is officially underway! Although I do miss summertime, I am looking forward to wearing my favorite knits once again.  The latest trend in winter fashion has got to be wearing oversized sweaters.  While the loose-fitted nature can be off-putting to some, it can actually be quite sexy.  It’s all about how you style your sweater.  To find out ways to wear an oversized sweater this fall/winter, keep reading!

1.Oversized Sweater X Thigh Highs

Kourtney Kardashian has been lately been slaying on the fashion front–every outfit has been on point and so flattering!  She recently paired a blush hued Yeezy Season 1 Cotton sweater ($499) with black Stuart Weitzman Highland Suede Thigh High Boots ($798). The key to this look is to make sure the sweater is long enough where it will cover your butt and that your thigh highs go high enough.  The light tone of the sweater perfectly compliments the black of the shoes and handbag.  This is a simple, minimalistic look that is so sexy!

If you want to try out this look at a more budget friendly price, check out this cream sweater from Naked Wardrobe for $42. and these Steve Madden thigh highs from Nasty Gal for $150.

2.Oversized Sweater X Loose Skirt

Selena Gomez donned a taupe hued oversized turtleneck, pairing it with a camel colored loose skirt and white pumps. She’s wearing a Tory Burch knit (currently on sale for $177) and skirt (sold out). This look is all about fit–the top and skirt are loose. Both pieces have large slits on the sides, making this look subtly sexy. By pairing them with pumps, you’re showing a lot of leg, but in a really classy way.

I found a similar turtleneck on Naked Wardrobe, and it’s only $62! Forever 21 has a gorgeous skirt for $17.90.

3.Oversized Turtleneck X Leggings

Gigi Hadid sported an oversized turtleneck sweater that looked so cozy and classic.  She paired it simply, with black leggings and heeled booties. The oversized turtleneck will always look good with leggings because the two pieces really balance each other out. Gigi pulled her hair up in a casual bun,  which is the perfect ‘do for this! I found a gorgeous Topshop sweater for $80 and leggings from H & M for $12.99

Fall Style: Knit Dresses

Sep

With fall just around the corner, what better way to kick it off than with a comfy knit dress?  I love the ones that look like oversized sweaters–so chic and so flattering no matter your body type.  If you love the look of knit dresses, take a look at three different ways you can wear it.

All the looks share the same idea: keep the entire outfit simple–no crazy amounts of jewelry, makeup, etc.  In this case, less is more!

In the first look, Kim Kardashian styles her loose knit dress with some thigh high nude boots and a matching Celine purse. She perfectly complimented the dress with some aviators, a gold watch and dark colored nails.

In the next look, the model is also rocking a white sleeveless knit dress like Kim, but this time, it’s styled with a sleeveless vest in off white.  It’ important to find a vest that’s longer than the dress–it balances the look!  Add a single silver colored bangle with simple makeup and there you have it!

This next look is my favorite!  It looks like the most comfortable oversized turtleneck!  The unique boots make it a cool, casual look.  Make sure to roll the sleeves, it keeps the look from being too polished!
