Oversized Sweater: The Winter Uniform

This winter I am living in my super cozy oversized sweaters.  The secret to finding the perfect oversized sweater is gender bending and shopping in the men’s department.  As you’ve seen from previous posts, I am a huge proponent of menswear for women.  Oversized doesn’t mean overpowering, which is something you must keep in mind when shopping in the men’s department.  The key to successfully pulling off men’s clothing is proportion and respecting your body.  I tend to pair oversized with tight allowing you to still show off your figure, while also emphasizing the oversized article.  When shopping for your oversized garment remember that the piece must be large enough to achieve the desired effect, but not so large that you drown in it.  Keep in mind you don’t have to buy a men’s sweater to find oversized, but it is my go to.  So please embrace my winter uniform and get cozy and fabulous at the same time, who ever thought those two words would be in the same sentence.

Proportion is crucial when wearing menswear.

Pairing the white sweater with a printed camo pant brings a little more excitement to the ensemble.
