Shopping For: Oversized Sweaters

Just as we associate raffia with summer, with autumn rapidly descending into the cold months of winter we realize we must alter our wardrobes in order to shelter ourselves from the below freezing temperatures that are soon to arrive.  Lucky for us, one of the leading trends we’re investing in this year is easy to snuggle up to.  Enter, the oversized sweater.  Everywhere you look, knitwear has risen its’ wearable head to show itself as the perfect staple piece this season and we couldn’t be more pleased.   In all its’ different fabrications and textures like ombre mohair turtlenecks from ASOS, waffle-knit neon high-low sweaters from Tibi and classically grey rib-knit jumpers from REISS there’s something for everyone to love.

In the end, our favorite part about this staple piece is its’ simple yet unfailing versatility.  For a low-key weekend throw one on with a pair of AG denim skinnies and 10 Crosby by Derek Lam pointed toe flats.  A chilly work-day is easily both appropriate and fashion forward when paired with black tights, a knee length skirt and knee-high boots.  You can even dress it up for an evening cocktail with sexy Aquazzura stilettos and leather legging JBrand pants.  Warm and fuzzy, comfy and cozy, these sweaters warm us up from the inside out.
