Winter Fashion: Oversized Sweaters

10 Jan

Oversized sweaters are everywhere this season!  It’s a chic and effortless look many celebrities are donning nowadays when running errands around Hollywood.

So…you may be asking….How to Wear an Oversized Cardigan:

1. With Skinny Jeans – My favorite way is wearing an oversized sweater with a pair of leggings, jeggings, or skinny jeans. Whenever you wear an oversized item it is always best to down play the garment by wearing a more fitted item of clothing.  Here is an example using Celebrity, Blake Lively:

2. Belt it – In order to avoid losing your feminine silhouette consider belting the cardigan in order to have it taper in at the waist. You can wear a fabric, leather, or snap belt in order to cinch the sweater. Also consider wrapping the cardigan in a criss cross fashion then belting it. The sweater can look like a chic wrap top. Like singer Rihanna in this picture:


3. Over a Fitted Button Up Shirt – An oversized sweater over an oxford button up gives the illusion of being half disheveled but half put together. The  button up can be tucked in at the front of your pants or just be loose.

4. With a long skirt –  Who What Wear Street Style blog is showing this looks for this season:  (the oversized sweater with a long skirt)

With 2013 already in full swing, many of us are resolving to make changes, so why not start with shaping up your wardrobe! From a waist cinching belts to colored denim pieces, here are some items to be sure to add to your wardrobe and that will ramp up your look in 2013!

1. Add Color – Colored jeans—from pastel to bright—are an easy, affordable, and versatile way to incorporate a big color trend into your wardrobe. The look offers a playful edge to your everyday pieces, and you can dress it up with a blazer, like Duchess Catherine and sister Pippa Middleton, or go casual like Zoe Saldana and Camila Alves.  Instyle Mag editor, says “don’t be afraid to pair bright denim with a colorful top—an equally bold blouse creates a fun color-block effect.”  Take a look at our selection of Made in the USA colored bottoms available at MiUS Collection:

2.  Add a belt – For a simple way to define your waist when you’re wearing a voluminous skirt or flowy top, wrap a  belt around your middle. Let it stand out by keeping the rest of your accessories on the subtle side (minimal jewelry). Here is actress, Lauren Graham wearing a waist cinch belt with pencil skirt combo:

3. Add Leggings –  Your favorite roomy wrap sweater needs only one thing to go from couch to street—leggings! The stretchy (hence comfy 😉 ) pant creates a slender bottom half, balancing out your sweater’s bulk. Add a waist-defining belt like Rihanna for a chic, cold-proof look!



4. Add a great handbag – Investment bags are worth their hefty price tags because you’ll carry them forever. To guarantee your bag will never go out of style, look for a classic lines, add a pop of color for fun. We have some particularly eye-catching handbags available at MiUS.  My personal preference are cross-body bags.  In fact, they are huge for this season, a trend we luv ❤ , as it takes zero effort and scores you mega style points!  Here is Jessica Alba sporting a beautiful crossbody bag:
