If you haven’t heard yet, take off your noise canceling headphones, and listen up! An oversized slouchy sweater is this winter’s top trend. It’s the kind that’s the polar opposite of the tailored and fitted look of a preppy sweater. It looks casual and relaxed like something you’d throw on to lounge around at home. It usually exposes one or both shoulders but in a less deliberate way than a proper off the shoulder sweater.
You already saw me wear this green chenille one from Express and I warned you that I was getting it in a different color. I got the ivory one as well as an oversized cardigan of the same material during the Cyber Week Sales. It is warm, cozy and carefree but the material feels luxurious. The chunkiness of the cable knit and the billowing sleeves create a dramatic effect. A total statement piece which is very affordable, especially on sale. The color selection is bound to satisfy every taste.
Even though it’s an oversized slouchy sweater, it can be dressed up a little with the right accessories, statement jewelry and heels. Or you can throw it over leggings and a cami and turn it into a top layer for your athleisure. I love a versatile piece like this one and that’s why I got it in multiple colors. I might even get it in the soft pink, it’s so pretty!
If you get your regular size it will fit more like it does the models below. For a truly oversized fit and an off the shoulder option, size up!
