Oversized Sweaters: The New Wardrobe Essential?

--By Kim Moshtaghi

When I was out to lunch with my gorgeous, pregnant girlfriend, I realized how essential oversized sweaters could be for our fashion wardrobe. Whether you are pregnant or not, wearing oversized sweaters can diversify your look. For example, oversized sweaters are a great way to layer heavy clothing without looking frumpy. Furthermore, oversized sweaters can create a beautiful, flowy appearance when your outfit is tighter on the bottom half. Moreover, leggings and tight jeans look wonderful with a looser top.

This Newport News oversized hooded sweater rocks because it's unique and has cool stitching. The stitching makes this sweater stand out and gives it an edgy look. I just love this sweater, because it's casual in a funky way and versatile with its crazy twists and color. I love the way this sweater sits, because it looks comfortable, sassy, and exudes a careless look that gives it an attractive appeal. It's a grand sweater all the way around from its buttons to its stitching.

This BCBG oversized sweater is very "girl next door" because it is simple and comfortable. It not something you would wear to a nice dinner, but it's a casual sweater that you will use a lot. The lattice openwork detail gives the sweater a little necessary flair. With its simple and straightforward look, this sweater will keep you warm while looking like you know your fashion.

Like to be the center of attention? The studded, short-sleeved, slouchy scoop neck will draw attentive looks. It's a sequin sweater that's not completely blinged, and the off-the-shoulder one side turns up the sexiness on this solid sequin sweater. You can wear an everyday sweatshirt when you want to dress down, or dress up depending on what you wear with it. I would wear this with a black blazer and large hoop earrings with some gems. Wear it well and have fun!
