Oversized Sweaters – A Stylish, Warm Hug For Fall

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.

Blue Oversized Cardigan Burgundy Jeans

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!

4.CARDIGAN CHAMELON I love a versatile piece that gives you options for different looks and this soft grey oversized card with a ruffle hem and gently flared sleeves is exactly that. With black or blue jeans, flats and a simple bag like I've shown here and it's a pretty and practical no-brainer look. But wear it over a boho-style tunic dress with tights and high boots or booties and voila! You've got a completely different look. <div class="shopthepost-widget" data-widget-id=""2826389"">

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.

Are you ready to envelope yourself in a gorgeous oversized sweater like I am? Which is your favorite and why?

    1. Agree about the colors. I went gag over the rust and that pink is so fresh and unexpected in fall. I’m a huge fan of color and I really do believe the right colors can make a tremendous difference in how you look and feel.

  1. My Sponge Bob Square pants shape don’t allow me to wear form-fitting sweaters anymore, however these oversized sweaters are just that—OVER sized. Although I’m sure they are comfortable, they just look sloppy to me. Not my style.
