STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Sweater Weather Is Better Weather

Style Advice of the Week

Sweater weather has officially arrived! Say hello to the season that’s chockfull of colorful knits! Any true Fashionista knows that sweater weather is the unofficial fifth season of the year. There’s nothing cozier than your favorite oversized sweater this time of year. The key to making the baggy sweater look work is balance. If you go baggy on top, you want to be polished everywhere else. I like to follow the 40 percent rule: only 40 percent of your outfit should be skin, or skin tight.

When wearing an oversized sweater, pair it with skinny jeans or tights on the bottom. This Fashionista wears a cute, printed sweater over tights, but pairs it with a skirt underneath for coverage. Paired with adorable booties, this Fashionista is comfortable and warm, but also looks stylish with printed tights. This look was recently spotted on the runway for Anna Sui’s fall collection, so it’s definitely going to be popular this year!

To achieve this look, start with the sweater. It’s most important to find a sweater you’ll be comfy and feel good in before you invest in some of the less comfortable pieces. The home of oversized sweaters has to be Urban Outfitters. Whether you want to go simple, quirky or posh, Urban Outfitters has it all. You can do the same with the tights even. You can do simple black with a subtle sparkle, a unique print or a fun kitty pair. The combinations are endless and there are really no wrong answers. The point is to be effortless and fun! Just remember to wear a skirt or shorts underneath just in case the sweater doesn’t do its job! Stay cozy!
