pg. 16 - styling an oversized sweater
Laura: "How would you style a super oversized sweater?"
Paige: I was wondering this same question myself.On Instagram lately I've been seeing some really cute looks with oversized sweaters. When Laura asked me how I would style this look I immediately took to the challenge. I had my eye on the cardigan I am wearing below and decided to take the plunge and I am sure glad I did!
Tips: keep the under layers super skinny and clean cut. When I was first styling my outfit I wore a button down that was on the loser side. It did not look right so I changed into this fitted mock-neck tee, tucked it in, and added a belt. As for jeans keep them skinny, I would stay away from holes since the cardigan is the main focus of the outfit.
Next I would add a bootie with some kind of a heel unless you're already leggy and 5'8. I styled my hair with teasing, a twist from my flat iron, and hair spray. I was going for a Free People kind of vibe.
Another way I have been wearing this over-sized cardigan is keeping all my under layers black, fitted and I opted for my Adidas. The all black kept the look from looking sloppy. This post is my first Q&A. The main purpose of The Style Paige is for me to work through your style questions, so keep them coming!
