Being that it's one of fall's must-have items, there are so many ways to wear an oversized sweater. Seriously, the possibilities are endless! I guess that's what makes them so essential in every girl's closet. Whether you're using them to make a statement, color block, or you just feel like cozying up in one, there are tons of ways to wear an oversized sweater.

1 Dress

To keep you from feeling too exposed, you can wear some thigh-high boots or opt for some tights. This is just one of many ways to wear an oversized sweater.

It's a really easy way to take your outfit to the next level! Recently, I've been obsessed with a Navy Long Sleeve V Neck Oversize Mohair Sweater from! It's PERFECT. Since it's such a statement piece, you can keep the rest of your outfit really simple.

3 Boyfriend Jeans

Boyfriend JeansSome people tend to stray from the "oversized everything" look but I think, if executed properly, it can be a really cute look. You can make your slouchy boyfriend jeans look a bit more tailored by rolling up the cuffs on them! When you do that, it'll look great paired with an oversized sweater.

4 With a Scarf

With a ScarfIf you're wearing a casual outfit (i.e: oversized sweater paired with leggings or jeans), dress it up with another fall staple - a scarf. It's such an easy way to make a statement with your outfit! If your sweater is a neutral color, choose a patterned scarf. If your sweater is colorful or patterned, chose a more subtle scarf that won't clash!

5 Mad for Plaid

7 Black on Black

Black on BlackYou can never go wrong when you wear one color head to toe. That's why an all black ensemble is always a good idea. Since it's a neutral color, it'll guarantee a very chic look. I can't tell you how many times I've chosen all black for my day's outfit - it always leaves me feeling sleek and sexy. Remember, since you're wearing an oversized sweater, wear something tailored for the bottom half of your outfit. This could mean skinny jeans or even leggings! What do you think about the all black trend?
