Oversized Sweaters & Boyfriend Jeans

This is my take on a perfect mid-week outfit – somewhat elevated comfort. Although boyfriend jeans may not be everyones favorite kind of fit due to the slouchiness, bagginess and lack-of-a-bum, it is a necessary staple in my closet. It is effortless and so comfortable, plus it adds a different kind of cool to your outfit rather than the regular tight skinny jean. Throughout Fall/Winter, I basically live in either textured leggings or boyfriend jeans, and oversized sweaters. There are many ways to elevate such a simple outfit idea and here are some of my tips:

– Pair a loose jean, trouser, or a legging with a silky shirt or tank top. The “girly” top will add a subtle feminine touch to whatever oversized baggy sweater you’re going to throw on top

– Patterns & details! Don’t just go for that basic open cardigan or pullover, look for something with interesting fabrics, asymmetrical cuts or cropped cuts, sewn-on-details, or patterns (like my featured sweater above from Envy Clothing Company)

– Accessorize! In my opinion, accessories can make or break your outfit. I paired my simple outfit with a couple of draped gold necklaces (in different lengths), dainty rings, an adorable pair of shades from the August Brand (in Toronto :)!), and my current favorite watch from The Horse  (gorgeous quality watches at an affordable price based out of Sydney, Australia)

– Along with accessorizing – bags and shoes are just as important as they tie your whole outfit together! Here I’ve elevated my outfit with my adorable Miranda Novelty Tote from Michael Kors, and I threw on my open toe booties in a similar shade to match

I think I’ve said this a million times, but Fall really is my favorite season as it combines comfort, effortless, and chic all together.

Until next time,
