#1 With stockings and leggings
If you have shapely legs, then this way to wear the oversized sweater is definitely for you! Show them off and wear a sweater that covers your ass please 😉

#2 With leather pants
Trust us, oversized sweaters against faux or real leather pants and leggings looks rather chic.  But in case you don’t have them, the look can also be achieved with leggings and leather thigh high boots.

#3 With Shorts
Now this one may not work for extreme cold, but try it when the weather becomes better. Tuck it in for a slightly less-oversized appearance, or leave it out for a complete commitment to oversized.

#4 With coats
Oversized sweaters can be slightly structures visually by wearing a coat on top. You could choose to wear it completely or just throw it on the shoulders.


#5 Like a dress

Yes, the oversized sweater dress is rather hot. Wear it with boots, and you can accessorize with long necklaces as well.

#6 With Maxi Skirts
Now this one may get tricky for the not-so-skinny ones, but it is a great look to pull off. And in case you feel short with this one, be sure to elevate yourself with heels.

#7 With Pencil Skirts
This is the way to wear an oversized sweater if you are a woman of curves. Define them below the waist and contrast with the oversized sweater on top. If you need help with skirt lengths, you must read our archived post.

#8 With thigh-high socks
If you are wearing your oversized sweater like a dress or even with shorts, remember thigh high socks. A school girl charm really works with the sweater.

#9 With Overalls
Probably you haven’t thought about it yet, but just like crop tops looks rad with overalls, so does an oversized sweater. Given, you like to wear overalls of course.

#10 With a button down
Layering an oversized sweater (cropped or full-length) with a button adds and interesting dimension to the look.

#11 With any jeans but Skinny
As you would realize now, oversized sweaters look terrific with boot cut, boyfriend jeans and even cropped jeans. So anything but skinny!

#12 With anti-fit jeans and pants
So, apparently oversized sweater with a loose pair of pants and jeans can work pretty well too. This opposes common style logic but it works nonetheless.

#13 Belt-it up
With this way, you can wear an oversized sweater and still have a waist! Best of both worlds when you belt it up!

#14 Off Shoulder
Off shoulder oversized sweaters are really sexy. Worn with jeans or skirts, doesn’t matter, just pull it from one side.
