If you’re reaching for jeans more than leggings this time of year, then I envy you. To be honest, all I want to wear right now are oversized sweaters and my favorite leggings. Please tell me I’m not the only one who feels this way.
If you’re in the same boat as me, then today’s post is for you, cause we’re talking sweaters that you can actually wear with leggings. While I may be a little more relaxed with the leggings rule and what tops are appropriate with them, I’m definitely all about oversized sweaters. This particular style of sweater looks great with leggings because it plays with proportions. Think big on top, skinny on bottom. Would you wear a boyfriend shirt and boyfriend jeans together in one outfit? Probably not. The same principles apply here.
I rounded up 10 options below, and while I can’t speak to each one of them personally, I know there are some good options here, like this Uniqlo oversized sweater. At under $40, it’s a budget-friendly option, and one that you can wear for the next couple of months.
I’m definitely addicted to oversized sweaters, and this Halogen tunic sweater is perfect for leggings. Here, I styled it with my faux leather jacket to dress it up a bit. Camel and black is definitely one of my all time favorite color combinations. I also own this sweater in the “burgundy stem” color. And if the camel or burgundy aren’t for you, there are seven other colors to choose from.
This sweater is a cashmere/wool blend, but trust me when I say that it feels more cashmere than wool. On Nordstrom’s site it suggests sizing down; however, I’m wearing my true size (small), and it fits perfectly.
