STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Boxed In

Style Advice of the Week

It is officially sweater season, but that doesn’t mean that you need to smother yourself in layers upon layers. Why not experiment with shape? A boxy-fit, oversized knit top can be worn with leggings and boots, jeans and flats and a vest or an overcoat. Their various styles and colors are easy to dress up or down, making the last few weeks of the semester stress free as far as your wardrobe goes.

Katy styled her knit pullover with simple leggings and boots of a warm color similar to that of her caramel-colored sweater. Brown is a great color for fall and winter, and I recommend a light shade for a knit pullover because it accentuates the texture. Katy’s boots are tall and structured, which creates a refined contrast with her relaxed sweater.

For a pullover with a similar collar, Topshop has a jumper with a zipper detail down one side. It also comes in oxblood, a very sophisticated color that has shown its face a lot this year. Pepe Heritage’s pullover has a very boxy cape cut, an emphasized waffle knit blend of wool and clean ribbed cuffs. If you want a turtleneck sweater, The Outnet has a ribbed wool blend in an ivory color that is perfect for the holidays. Its mid-length sleeves are great for accessorizing with bracelets and can be dressed down with jeans or up with corduroys or tuxedo pants.
