Oversized jumpers have been trending every winter for years now – what is not to love? They are comfy, warm and versatile. If you happen to be small in stature, an oversized jumper can double as a dress. I would advise choosing a neutral colour with your jumper – that way, you can match it with a variety of other colours without major clashes. A neutral colour like grey, cream or black with allow you to be more experimental with your accessories. There are various styles of these jumpers: some have cut-out details and others feature slogans. Styles have also expanded to include neoprene material. There is genuinely something to match everyone’s taste out there at the moment.
Following in the footsteps of celebs, team it with ripped jeans. Ripped jeans seem to be another trend that is not going anywhere soon. If you are feeling adventurous, maybe add a pair of eye-catching earrings.
The jumper dress is an extension of the oversized jumper. Topshop and New Look provide a great tall and petite range, if you feel you need it more tailored to your height. As the days are getting colder, add a pair of tights and – shockingly – they do not need to be black. I find sometimes black tights are a little bit of a safety blanket for me. Penneys have so many different colours and types of tights. Don’t have the guts to go for bright pink? Try something more subdued – maybe a dark grey!
Oversized jumpers as occasion wear? Yes, imagine how comfy and warm you’ll be at the end of the night. Pick a lighter material than the traditionally wooly jumper. Kourtney Kardashian is currently the queen of oversized jumpers, usually wearing them with thigh-high boots. Taking notes from her, thigh-high or knee-high boots would go perfectly with a jumper dress. This outfit would look great at a christmas party.
Something I often overlook when it comes to styling oversized jumpers is to pair them with a skirt.
An a-line denim skirt would add something different to your look, and you’ll be tackling two trends at the same time.
For a particularity cold day, layering up your oversized jumper would be a great look. Add a scarf, hat, coat and faux fur shawl. The more layers the better! A long-sleeved plain t-shirt under your jumper will keep you extra toasty.
An oversized jumper is really an outfit in itself. You can just wear it on its own with little or no accessories. It is a great choice, as it can be as practical and stylish as you want it.
