How to Wear an Oversized Cardigan without Looking Frumpy (keep reading for more examples below as well)
I asked for topics people would in actuality like covered on the blog, and one in the midst of them was the way to wear an oversized cardigan without looking frumpy. Such a good idea!
Oversized cardigans are all the rage lately. I can see why. They are comfortable and easy layers. Here’s the thing, they can be unbecoming. Below are some general guidelines I stick with when wearing them.
1. Consider the heaviness of the cardigan when you buy it. Look for a pleasant, heavy material but also one that isn’t overly “puffy” if you recognize what I mean. Puffy weight sweaters swollen outer shell.
2. Layer a top underneath that fits acceptably. Think a built-in t-shirt as I even have wiped out this post, a cami, a skinny blouse. I.e. do not add a thick-weight, bulky top underneath. Bulky top below.
3. Regard as wearing a higher waist pant/jean and tucking your top in to visually create/save your waistline. Having a waist below all that material may be a good thing!
4. In my opinion, I like oversized cardigans that hit mid-thigh or below. I find ones that hit closer to the hip area just draw attention to and add bulk too, well, my hip area. Nobody wants that!
Tips How to Wear Oversized Sweaters Outfits
1. Tailored Bottoms
When it involves wearing any boxy or oversized top, an honest rule of thumb is to stay rock underneath half you looking more made to order. It keeps your look balanced and provides you that naturally well-dressed look. Jeans are my go-to, so I stick with well-fitting skinny jeans to offer shape to my legs, but tailored ankle pants like these or Spanx faux leather leggings (what I’m wearing here) would look great and be perfect for the office too.
I love that both of those styles are straight or tapering at the ankle, which provides shape to the rock bottom half of you and making your legs look longer.
2. Regard as Your Height
Oversized sweaters characteristically fall into two categories. One being a boxy, shorter oversized fit, and two being a more straight, but longer fit—like the one I’m wearing here. I love both, but counting on your height and body shape, one could be better for you than the others. If you’re shorter, I’d choose a shorter oversized sweater then follow tip number three.
Sweaters that are too long can make your legs look shorter, which could be okay if you’re super high, but not ideal if you’re short.
3. Push It
When hesitant, insert the front of your sweater into your jeans or pants. I love doing this with jeans, but not with leggings. I’m currently pregnant, so it’s harder to try to this with a knock, but when I’m not pregnant, the front tuck is my jam!
It’s my signature move to creating oversized tops that look more stylish and intentional. It also helps to get longer your legs, so if you’re on the short side, definitely do this little deception!
4. Frumpy vs. Fashionable
There’s a fine line to steer with big sweaters and you don’t want to fall on the frumpy side. Instead of just ordering any sweater a size or two up, pick sweaters that are designed to be oversized.
Simply ordering up a pair of sizes will offer you an oversized look, but sleeves that are too long and out of your depth will make it appear as if you ordered the incorrect size because you did.
Sweaters that are designed to be oversized will suit your arms and shoulders suitably leaving you looking styled, not frumpy.
5. Wear Heels
If you’re concerned about looking too casual, simply add a pump or heeled bootie to put on a pedestal the design. It doesn’t need to be fancy—my a-day look is usually very casual, but adding a touch heel elongates your legs and adds some circumference to your look. And, if you actually hate heels, choose flats with a sharp toe which will give the false impression of longer legs too.
