Style Guide: My Favorite Ways To Rock The Oversized Sweater

This season sweaters seem to come in only one size: XXL, and I could not be more thrilled. The oversized sweater is my favorite thing to throw on when the weather starts to dip down into the colder temps. And while the tendency is to wear this piece over leggings and boots - super comfy, but not super chic - here are three ways to style your sweater sans lululemons.

WITH A LOT OF BLACK FOR A CHIC LOOK

If you want comfortable, everyday attire (think running through the city all day), throw your oversized sweater over a black skirt. One of my fave looks for this winter season is black paired with knitwear. It bring a certain chicness to a textile that is known for comfort. Take a cue from Jane's impeccable style, and coordinate your shoes and sweater.

WITH HIGH HEELS FOR THE OFFICE

You may be thinking that an oversized sweater is a definite no-no for the office, but there is a way to pull this off. Choose a basic, slightly more fitted sweater and spice it up with a printed maxi and high heels. Sally from A Piece Of Toast is work-week chic in her sweater and florals, with her heels adding the perfect touch of sophistication.

WITH DENIM FOR A RELAXED VIBE

Want my recipe for a relaxed, yet polished look?? Start with an oversized sweater + distressed jeans, then simply add and a pair of stilettos and a stand-out bag. Even a quick run to the grocery store merits a fab outfit, and Jane gives us yet another great way to wear an oversized sweater while still looking put together and chic.

As the weather gets colder, we all have the tendency to focus on comfort rather than stye. What I love about these looks is that they bring the coziness of a sweater to the chicness of today's hottest trends. Let me know how you bring edge to your oversize sweater with #MYMB and #MBStyleGuide.
