LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: The Big Comfy Jacket

Let's Hear it for the Boys

There are few things that I like more than an oversized comfy sweater. There is something so effortlessly chic about them that make them perfect for so many occasions. You can wear them to hang out with friends, go to class, study and you could even get away with wearing them to a party. Like most things in fashion, the secret to nailing the oversized sweater look is to appropriately complete the look.

I often find myself wondering why it is so acceptable to wear oversized sweaters but if you wear an oversized blouse it just looks baggy. However, this Fashionisto has seemed to appropriately execute the oversized jacket look (ohh-ahh). Oversized jackets are, come to think of it, perfect. They are big enough that they keep a vast majority of your body warm. To add to their magic, they are so big you can wear a ridiculous amount of layers under without looking like a total puffball. This Fashionisto’s oversized jacket is perfectly on-trend with its fur-trimmed collar and sleeves.

The problem with oversized wear of any sorts is that the rest of the outfit needs to be appropriately tailored to balance out the largeness. Think of the creaminess of peanut butter being balanced out exquisitely by the gooeyness of jelly. This Fashionisto decided to complete his look with a pair of rolled up skinny jeans and black classic Vans. The tightness of the pants re-shapes the body while the Vans sneakers give the outfit that extra dash of hipster. Thinking it over, the only clothing item that I think is better than a comfy, cozy, oversized sweater is my pajamas.

Hint: Be sure to add a nice oversized piece to your wardrobe. Be sure to properly complete your look with tailored pieces and fun accessories.
