Some days you just crave a little comfort food, and the same goes for comfort fashion. There’s nothing like a big, warm wooly sweater to make you feel secure, cozy and loved. This fall it is easy to feel like you’re getting a big warm hug, and you’ll be doing it in style too. Here are 5 Fabulous Oversized Sweaters that make you feel you’re home.
1. Oversized Grandpa Cardigan
Expect to get warm, fuzzy feelings of good old grandpa when you slip on this gorgeous blue cardigan. This sentimental silhouette (dubbed the Grandpa cardigan) in this bold sapphire color brings a classic look right up to date in fall 2017!
I call this sweater my Saturday morning stunner because it’s nice and relaxed, but guaranteed to make you standout from the crowd. You’ll want to wear it every Saturday. (And Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday too!)
2. Supersized Turtleneck
This voluminous Shaker stitch turtleneck is the kind of sweater you’ll want to climb into and never get out of. It’s easy to lose yourself in the fabulous neckline and those humongous sleeves, yet still look surprisingly chic. This is especially true if you wear this sweater with something skinny on the bottom like these dark wash ankle jeans and suede stacked heel booties.
One note: This sweater runs big so if you’re ordering online, consider going one size down.
3. Oversized, not Overwhelming
Giant, soft batwing sleeves give this darling creamy sweater a serene, angelic look. Statement sleeves like this are a huge trend this fall so dive right in! I’ve paired it here with jeans and have kept the rest of the look nice and neutral, but it would also give a simple black sheath dress worn with black tights and booties a modern update.
4. Roomy Mock Neck Knit
I don’t know about you but I’m always on the lookout for modern ways to update a pair of jeans or leggings and this vibrant pink ribbed mock neck knit does the trick. This beautiful sweater has a super modern shape, great texture and lots of feminine charm. The bright pink color is fun and fresh, but it also comes in a gorgeous dark turquoise that is perfect for fall too. I’m dying to try this one!
5. Slouchy Cold Shoulder Sweater
Slouchy, oversize and revealing shoulder detail seem to go together perfectly. This cute zip-trimmed gray sweater from Michael Kors sure isn’t your average cold shoulder top.
I love the mix of the conservative menswear feel with the flirty open shoulder. That big, slouchy sleeve makes it look like you just grabbed this out of your husband’s closet and added your own creative spin.
I’ve shown it here with warm leopard flats and a tan bag for an easy daytime look. Swap the flats for high-heeled chunky booties and bag for a chain handle cross body or edgy black clutch, and you have a Wow! Evening out look that would look amazing on a woman of any age.
