Shopping Your Closet: Oversized Sweaters for Fall

While I’m enjoying summer’s warm weather, there is one thing I’m really excited about for fall: cozy, oversized sweaters. I know, I shouldn’t wish away the summer months, but seeing all those fall clothes out on the racks is getting me super pumped for sipping a hot coffee in my fall wardrobe on the way to class.


Luckily, I don’t have to spend all my money on a new wardrobe to enjoy the latest fall trends; I have a few leftover sweaters from last winter that will work perfectly for this one. Here are a few ideas of how to rock those old looks and turn them into hot, chic new ones.

1. Add a few trendy accessories to update this look. For example, this fall studded belts and ankle boots are hot. Pile on the jewelry as well!

Shopping Info: Rampage Double Buckle Studded Stretch Belt, $32; Bebe Logo Mixed Bangle Set, $39; Express Shaker Stitch Cowl-Neck Sweater, $59; Giuseppe Zanottie Design Ankle Boots, $435 at Yoox.

2. Oversized sweaters look great with a pair of leggings and boots, but this year incorporate another fall trend: beyond basic leggings. Try pairing a sweater with liquid leggings, ripped leggings, or denim leggings for a chic yet comfortable combo. (And don’t worry about those liquid leggings, ladies; they look incredibly chic and flattering when paired with a larger and looser top!)

Shopping Info: Plan B Latex Matte Leggings, $75 at Bloomingdale’s; Pure Jill Cowl-Neck Sweater, $79 at J. Jill.
