Whoever said diamonds were a girl's best friend was lying. Oversized sweaters are a girl's best friend, of course! Okay..Maybe we won't go that far..But still. they are comfy, warm, flattering on all shapes, on trend, and oh so easy to style!
This one in particular is a dress, which I love! Just throw on some OTK boots and you are good to go! And guys, I can not rave enough about these boots! I had a pair of $200 over the knee boots in my hands. I felt them. I tried them on. And obviously I could not do it. I only wish I could spend that much on a pair of boots! Ha. Needless to say, these $50 ones are comparable! Granted, the suede is not as luxurious but who cares?! I don't have to worry about ruining these ones. The fit is amazing. The comfort is amazing. They come in black and brown. If you're looking for OTK boots and you're on a budget, these are the ones for you! I was even lucky enough to snag them on sale for $35. $35!!!!!
Anyways. Off the rabbit trail. As I was saying. This sweater in particular is a dress, but there are even more oversized sweater that are made to be worn as tops! And SO many ways to wear them!
I've got 4 ideas for ya, right off the top of my head. Seriously, it's 1 am and I should be sleeping but.... #momlife.

simple yet chic look. Chic enough for work! A look that is great for all body types and ages. You'll feel put together, classy, and fabulous!

And of course, there are always the oversized dress options! OTK boots, a dressy coat, and clutch and you're ready for date night!
P.S I NEVER wear red... especially a red this bright! But I decided to step out on this one!
What do you feel comfortable in? What screams ME? (Not me.. you ;) What vibe or look are you going for? Try pairing those things with an oversized sweater! You'll be surprised at what works!
Got a silver midi skirt that you just adore because it makes you feel like a princess? Half tuck an oversized sweater, throw on some pumps or sneakers and bam!
