style me


oversized nordic sweater c/o OASAP //  jeggings c/o denimocracy  //  scarf: fashionABLE
boots: johnston murphy (score cagillion points for my mom for finding them on sale for $10!)

So... I first saw this oversized moose nordic sweater on pinterest.  i wanted it.  like had-to-have-it-even-though-winter-was-months-away had to have it.  OASAP sent it on over & I was pumped.  Especially since I just finished watching the whole series of Felicity on netflix and all that girl did was wear giant sweaters! -i digress- anywhoo... back to the sweater at hand! It's cute & it's cozy.... one problem -- I have no idea how to style it.  {Honest truth: I have attempted outfit pics in this sweater three separate times.  And as you can see I don't have much to show for it.  I mean mayyyybe it is because anyone would feel silly wearing a giant sweater in September, But...}

I need your input.  What would you wear an oversized sweater with.  How is one "supposed" to style it? As the winds get crisper will you be rocking the giant sweater?

  1. It's awesome! Very Bill Cosby, in a good way. I would probably style it the same way, or with the messy/cute rolled up jeans like JCrew always does. I'm sure it will come more naturally as it gets cooler :)

  5. I actually really like how you styled it here! I'm a simple girl, so I like one really awesome piece and everything else simple. I am kind of in love with that sweater...

  6. I like how you have it. I'm kinda plain myself so I like to have 1 piece that stands out and the rest kinda blend. I think this looks great!

  7. Love it as-is! Maybe a denim mini-skirt that just peeks out, too? Or a long pleated chiffon skirt in cream or burgundy, and a giant belt?

  8. Haha, I feel like Bleubird Vintage could tell you. I immediately thought of her and her southwestern duds when I saw that sweater. I have a feeling I like your styling of it even better than something she would do, though, just based on my personal preference. Those boots are fabulous.

  9. Skinny black jeans + chunky clogs - the boot or the slide on kind. I love Makuba's :)

  12. oh my god, i am SO in love with this guy. i'm all about giant granpa sweaters, and i think my heart stopped for half a beat when i saw this. that's right, your sweater almost killed me.

    haha but dressing them up is super fun! I'd pair that with some colored jeans, like rust or burnt ornage (super cheap ones at tj maxx) with a collared shirt peaking out. Or i'd tuck it into a skirt with either another pattern or just a base color. One of my favorite outfits with a grandpa sweater was it being tucked into a maxi skirt and tossing a jean vest over it. It was so cute! (and i know this comment was heinously long!)
