There’s a fine line between adorable and frumpy when it comes to oversized sweaters – style it right and you have a look that literally won’t quite. Like I have been living in the Je t’aime Cardigan from Idol Collective. ♥
The trick to styling an oversized sweater is to keep everything else clean, simple and fitted. I highly recommend adding a heel to boost your stems and provide that ‘longer, leaner’ vibe. The goal is to keep the look going vertical.
I also veer on the minimalist side with accessories when working with a statement piece like this sweater. I’m wearing pearl studs and my favorite Leia Beila necklace – think light and feminine.
Skinny jeans would definitely work, but my perfect pairing is the Zella ‘Live In’ Slim Fit Leggings from Nordstrom. They are awesome for ‘real life’ (not just the gym) and last forever. They keep my bottom half looking slimmer to offset the oversized sweater.
And finally, these little booties have been in my closet for years – thanks to Kenneth Cole. If you know me, you probably have seen me wear them a dozen+ times…they are a comfortable heel, end of story. ♥
See, you can totally pull-off this look, right? Good…because it’s GIVEAWAY time!
