Oversize Sweaters Over Everything—Here Are 11 Ways to Style Them Flawlessly

I'm not a morning person, so it's tough to leave my cozy comforter in the morning. While I may not be able to take my blanket with me wherever I go, there is a close-second option: oversize sweaters. They have the perfect loose fit so you'll feel relaxed, and they provide a plethora of styling options. They're trending in such a way that when most people think of sweaters, they're often imagining an oversize fit. (Just take a look at the majority of the market.) My knit collection is well-versed, complete with everything from chunky turtlenecks to loose cardigans. I've been looking for some ideas on how to style them this season, so I thought I'd share my outfit mood board with you all.

The weather is warranting these massive knits a necessity, but I'm here to show you that they can be chic, too. Go on to see the oversize-sweater outfits that are inspiring me to layer up in the coziest knits all season long, and shop the coolest sweaters out there.
