{outfit} Oversized



  Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,,, 
One of the big trends for this year is oversized.  Luckily my mom gave me this old sweater of my dad's, which was made by my Grandmother, that fits the bill perfectly!  My tip for wearing oversized pieces is to go easy with the accessories and wear something a bit more form fitting on the bottom (or top if your bottom is the oversized piece.) A lot of the runways were showing oversized pieces all around, but that's not too flattering for most normal sized women.

I wore this last Monday when I went home for birthday celebrations for my mother and I (her birthday is 2 days before mine). It was just me, my mom, dad, one of my brothers and my sister. We had Chinese food, cupcakes, cake and opened silly presents. I also realized during dinner that I had put my sweater on backwards...oops!

Sweater: Made by Grandma, Jeans: Free People (Gilt Groupe), Heels: Lanvin (Roundabout Consignments) $80,   Purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop)

Here are some oversized pieces I would love to add to my closet, with some commentary by yours truly.:
