Effortless Oversized Jumper Style Inspo

OVERSIZED JUMPERS   

(THE BIGGER THE BETTER)

 

 

Oversized jumpers have been a life saviour for me these past few months and I can't recommend ALLSAINTS enough for staple pieces that are made from the cosiest of wool materials that keep you warm but also look equally as flattering on. It's not every day you come across an oversized jumper that doesn't drown out your shape (especially for us petite girls) so I thought I would share some of my best tips if like me you adore oversized jumpers but not quite sure how to style them up for your body shape/height if your a little on the small side.

 

Being 5 FT 3 is never easy but it's something I definitely wouldn't change any time soon. Oversized jumpers are the perfect cover-up and something I just throw on without a thought and I know it will look good with whatever I'm wearing that day. I can't imagine life without them now especially with living in such a cold climate! It's always a great option to have a wardrobe full of comfy knits to slip on when it's freezing outside. Jumpers look great with almost anything and with my tips, I will tell you why... 

 

 

 

OUTFIT DETAILS: 

Jumper: ALLSAINTS (similar)/  Trousers: Only  / Shoes: Dr Martens  /  Coat: Reiss  / Bag: Aspinal of London (similar/  Lipstick: Yves Saint Laurent.

Fitted Coat + Accessories

 

You can never go wrong with a well-fitted coat and I absolutely adore this one from Reiss for it's tailoring and thick wool fabric. This is my winter staple and even better it goes exceptionally well with oversized pieces and the fitted style to this coat makes my oversized jumpers look less frumpy and more polished. There's nothing worse than a bad fitting garment that just drowns the composition of one's shape and in turn, it just puts the whole outfit off balance. I'm the type of person that loves to enhance my natural shape and not hide it! This is why I enjoy finding new ways to let oversized pieces take centre stage but also not steal the limelight when it comes to making every piece work in harmony together. I guess you could say Accessories is where you can play around with colour and size for a unique twist. I opted for my mini velvet Aspinal of London cross-body bag as the gold hardware just POPS against the all black which I adore as it just brings the outfit to life. I feel mini bags are the way to go when styling oversized pieces as the formation is much more transparent and it really helps to play that bulkiness down.

Heels + Slim Fit Trousers!....

 

Stating the obvious maybe but for us, smaller ladies heeled boots are a godsend! Not only do they make us appear taller but they also work just as well for giving the illusion of a longer torso - this then making the perfect ensemble for oversized pieces to look not as oversized in appearance. This in return makes the whole outfit work together in perfect harmony and with the slim fit trousers, you have yourself a winning combination. Slim fit trousers are my weekday go-to for effortless style as they work great with different fitted tops/jumpers and look just as good teamed with trainers as they do with heels for a more polished look.

 

 

Do you love oversized jumpers? What's your style tips when it comes to oversized pieces?
