‘Tis the season for Fall flavored Starbs yummies, topknots, blanket scarves, and trying to pull off oversized sweaters at the office every day of the week.
Can you blame us though? It’s the closest we can get to wearing our down comforters to work.
We talked about it a little yesterday, but I wanted to give you a little outfit inspo in the flesh. I wore this exact outfit to work last Friday and it kept me toasty warm while being 9-5 appropriate. Point to you, old Zara sweater. I had a hot date with a few high school friends after punching out so I threw my hair up and swapped out this navy pencil skirt for my favorite black skinnies (which are also office approp, btw). A little something to remember: Most sweaters in this family are porous so toss on a cami or long sleeved tee (my favorite are from Peruvian Connection) underneath to ensure no one sees your La Perla.
Top Tips for Styling Oversized Sweaters:
+ Stay skinny on the bottom // Pair it with slimming pieces like a pencil skirt, a pixie pant, or a tapered leg pant.
+ Always add a heel // Keep that long, slimming effect by adding a pump or heeled boot
+ Go big or go home // If you’re a size small, try grabbing a size large in that sweater you’ve got your eye on and rock the oversized look. Just because it’s not made to be worn as “oversized” doesn’t mean you can’t style it that way!
+ Ducktail FTW // In a more casual setting, tuck a little of the sweater into the front of your skirt/pants and leave the back hanging out. This is an easy way to draw attention to your natural waist (Instead of looking like this knitted beast is devouring you)
