This winter I have added to my sweater collection (it didn’t grow much in Las Vegas) and have decided that if I could only wear one thing for all of winter it would be an oversized sweater. When you buy the right one it feels like you are living in a blanket and since I can’t run errands in my pajama onesies, this is the next best thing.
You may be thinking, but Kali, those sweaters are so shapeless, no one knows what you are hiding under there! To which I respond, yes, I could be hiding an entire pizza – and that would only make this sweater that much better!
If you aren’t sold by that, then here are my top 3 reasons on why you should have an oversized sweater in your closet.
- They go with everything. They are like the neutral of clothing tops, they look good no matter what is on the bottom half. You can wear these with skirts, shorts (I’m looking at you Floridians), jeans, leggings, or even nothing (hey, I don’t judge)!
- Feeling cozy? Sweater. Feeling sad? Sweater. Feeling excited? Sweater. Sweaters are like clothing mood rings: They become whatever it is you are feeling.
- They are the ultimate cuddle clothing. Nothing says come give me a hug and cuddle like a large soft sweater, even if you are just wanting to cuddle up with that glass of wine!
