Proportions Play

Oversized sweaters are the must-have style of the season.  These billowing beauties are not only ridiculously comfortable, but also super stylish.  When wearing oversized pieces one must consider balance.  Very few people can pull off head to toe volume as it will make them look larger than they are.  My favorite pairing for these types of sweaters are leather leggings, skinny jeans and pencil skirts.  These sleek bottoms contrast with the top and help maintain the wearer’s shape.

When the top is very oversized and the bottoms are skinny a shoe with a little volume looks very nice because it compliments the voluminous top and helps balance the look.  Pairing a very oversized top with a very sleek shoe can definitely work, but sometimes the pairing may feel a little top heavy.  If a sleek shoe is preferred a fluted skirt or a flared pant that is fitted around the hips and thighs will create the same balanced look.

    I’m wearing an oversized sweater today. It’s freezing out. I love how yours is has a lighter weight look to it and the large cable knit pattern makes it more flattering. The shoes are killer of course and you’re making me wish I would gotten them in black!

    I love your approach to style. The bag and boots are the perfect accessory to the oversize sweater look.
