Oversize Sweaters Reign Supreme!

Cardigan dusters are making even bigger impacts this month.  Take oversize sweaters and drop them down to the ground for a cool, nothing-but-nonsense vibe.  For you All-American types, check out this Madeleine Thompson Ibis Cardigan.   It’s 100% cashmere and the stripes make it 100% amazing. We love these in letterman styles with Asian-inspired embroidery.  Think Gucci for this killer look.

Student of the Week

Who are you calling “teacher’s pet”?  Oversize sweaters and cardigans put the recess back into your day.  They are also perfect for keeping warm in the office and buttering up bosses.  This Aquatic Cardi from Free People has the perfect slouchy silhouette and slip pockets.  We love the bright colors for Spring especially!  No one ever accused us of slacking off.

Backless Beauty

Dare to bare a little bit of skin in surprising ways.  Usually oversize sweaters make people think “cover up”, which is why we love them backless!  Sport fun necklaces in reverse and let them hang down your back a little.   This Free People Maybe Baby Sweater takes all of the guesswork out of the equation.   The lace-up back and extra long sleeves do the detailing for you!  Time to spruce up our usually most-neglected area of our bodies.  Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

Swiss Miss

Did someone mention hot cocoa?  The hills are alive with the sound of puffy shoulders on oversize sweaters.  Add a Swiss-inspired print and you’ve got a killer work outfit to stay warm in.  We found this Urban Renewal Recycled Cropped Fair Isle Sweater from Urban Outfitters that fits the bill.  The print is on point and we love that it has been upcycled with hand detailing.  One-of-a-kind sweaters are closet keepers.  Just add trousers!

No Pants Dance

Gotta’ show a little leg?  This season’s hottest trend is long, oversize sweaters and thigh high boots.  Take a look at our article on bell sleeves and add them to your sweater mix!  Free People’s Last Rose Sweater is the perfect length and sports wide, striped sleeves.   The knitted rose pattern on the front is perfect for pre-Valentine’s Day cheer. We love the pant-less sweater style because it keeps us motivated to work out during the off season!

Fringe Like Nobody’s Watching

If you’ve got a thing for monsters, think fringe.   In case you didn’t know, Rebecca Minkoff has a pretty Berea Sweater that is currently 50% off!  The rose color and fringe details make it the perfect partner with an all-black outfit.  Cuffs on oversize sweaters should also be making major statements this year.  Scrub up your knees and keep your hands warm instead!  We especially love this style paired with our favorite print of the season, polka dots.  Make sure to let some peek through!
