As a self-proclaimed connoisseur of comfort, oversize sweaters are my top wardrobe essential in cold weather. From chunky knits to bright colors ( I’m lowkey looking for a neon option to complete my arsenal), whether I’m styling them with classic denim, layering it over a slip skirt or dress, or pairing one with leather leggings – huge, comfy sweaters are basically my autumn/winter go-to. For this look I opted for a clean silhouette and a monochromatic palette to keep the look cohesive and polished.
I teamed my red oversized turtleneck sweater with a pair of bright red pants and a matching red coat. My leopard print Sam Edelman sneakers and a pair of gold reflective sunglasses from ASOS tied everything together for a day running errands. Though I’m already planning to repeat this look for an event this week, but paired with heels this time. The key to this look is layering textures as well as colour to give the look some interest.
