22 Cozy Oversized Sweaters to Travel in This Winter
Sure, the temperatures may drop and cold air will set in, but the way we see it, winter is the perfect time of year to wrap ourselves in cozy knitwear and curl up in front of a fireplace with a good book.
And there’s nothing quite like bundling up in a plush oversized sweater to make you realize the coldest season is not so bad after all. It’s like wrapping yourself up in your favorite blanket — except for the fact that you can actually wear it out in public and everyone approves.
And fashion-forward travelers know there’s good reason for this trend to emerge season after season — roomy silhouettes are comfortable and versatile. They can easily be paired with skirts or pants, and even worn over a dress as an additional layer. The styling options are limitless and this is why chunky knits are now a wardrobe essential.
If you love all things classic, opt for a turtleneck silhouette in gray or black for a look that's truly timeless. But if dark hues aren’t your thing, then go for something bright and bold that features mini pom-poms, slit side hems, or distressed detailing. And since that plush feeling we mentioned is very important, look out for pieces crafted in merino or alpaca wool, mohair, and luxurious cashmere.
So whether you need to add a few winter sweaters to your closet for a special trip you’re taking or you just want to freshen up your wardrobe with a couple of knitwear additions, these warm oversized pieces will make you excited about sweater weather.
