To achieve street style bait status this season, it’s all about mastering the fine art of layering. And Insta-worthy fall jackets and coats are only a small part of the equation: It’s what lies beneath that truly showcases your sartorial prowess. Like a killer pair of ankle boots, a chic oversized sweater will never steer you wrong. Tucked into high-waisted trousers or teamed with a flirty mini skirt, it’ll keep you feeling warm and cozy, while racking up the style points left and right. This week, Style Resolutions is bringing you three RN ways to rock this fall layering essential all day, erryday.
How to Wear an Oversized Sweater for Work
Comfort can be a luxury at the office when strict dress codes and stuffy suiting separates are the standard. Do on-duty your way — without drawing the eye from HR — by teaming a snuggly oversized sweater with a polished-yet-playful midi skirt and pointed-toe ankle boots with a down-to-business edge. Heading out the door without a bit of bling is totally out of the question, but trust us when we say you won’t want to leave home without this pretty blue chandeliers. Round out the look with an upgraded trench and snakeskin-inspired box bag.

How to Wear an Oversized Sweater for a Night Out
A far cry from classic LBDs and sequin-trimmed mini skirts, this unexpected combo is after-hours gold. Comfort and sophistication? You can’t argue with that. Keep the dance floor vibes alive with metallic-trimmed block heels and a glitzy gold collar with glamour built right in. Toss on a statement coat to keep the evening chills at bay, and give your bag swag a chic place to call home with an edgy box clutch.
