We hear oversized, we see’sloppy. But incorporating an XL sweater or top into your outfit without looking?like a bag lady is simply about?balance. Here are five ways to look chic and sophisticated in an oversized top.
I love the simplicity of this outfit. The two contrasting neutrals add sharpness to the whole look, but what prevents this outfit from looking in any way shabby is the skinny ribbed skirt, which elongates the wearer and adds refinement to the gnarly knit.
Belting a?too-big-for-you?top immediately creates shape and adds instant sophistication. Don’t worry if there’s a little bit of bunching at the waist – this look shouldn’t?appear fussy, but slightly thrown together in an effortless way.
If you’re going up a couple of sizes, try choosing something in a slightly sheer knit?for balance. Revealing a hint of flesh and a suggestion of shape through a thin knit makes the sweater look less overwhelming.
A’directional?cut always attracts the eye and gives an oversized top a cleaner, sharper feel. This off-the-shoulder piece from Cos folds beautifully and looks really chic.
Many women fear that going oversized will leave them looking too boyish. This gorgeous striped shirt removes the issue with the addition of a?pretty?frill detail. The black cropped pants, which reveal a hint of ankle, also add a further feminine touch.
