Sweaters are always one of the most timeless and popular pieces of the season. The trending style, one that has been spotted all over runways and streets, is oversized. This year the sweaters are bigger than ever. This style is most definitely a statement, but also a perfect addition to your cool-weather wardrobe. Whether you wear it with skinny pants or nothing underneath, oversized sweaters make for a casual outfit that still looks put together.
I came across this Free People oversized cowl-neck sweater that checked all my boxes: it was oversized, warm, and comfortable. The sweater is an alpaca blend, a soft and spongy fiber of great quality that is comparable to wool and as cozy as cashmere. Even though, warm and comfortable sound obvious when you are looking for a sweater, there are so many uncomfortable sweaters (ex. itchy) on the market that you have to be extra careful when buying.
Staying on top of trends can sometimes be a nuisance, especially if they aren’t timeless pieces. But when a big and soft sweater comes into the picture, it is definitely worth the investment. I plan on wearing this oversized sweater for years and styling it in all sorts of ways. I wore my lace up booties with this outfit because it created a nice juxtaposition to the sweater; I love mixing structured and unstructured pieces. Remember, to avoid losing your shape in this type of piece, you can always accessorize with a belt.
