How to Balance The Oversized Sweater Trend

I love the idea of losing yourself in a cozy, oversized sweater. But, you can quite literally lose yourself in one depending on how you style it. When that’s not the goal, I rely on 3 styling approaches when rocking the very popular super-sized sweater look. I’m sharing them (and wearing a combination of 2 of them) below.

1. Half tuck it

An easy and chic way to keep the size of your sweater in check is to half tuck it into your bottoms. And excuse to half tuck, right?

2. Show a little shoulder

Draping a slouchy, oversized sweater off your shoulders (when the weather permits, of course) instantly adds balance. My style has a beautiful button detail on the high neck that can be unbuttoned. It’s such a chic finish.

3. Choose a cropped sweater

One of my favorite oversized sweaters this season is the cropped version (like this and this). When paired with high-waist bottoms, the result is a stylish and balanced ensemble.
