Key Ways To Style An Oversized Cardigan

If you're not used to the idea of oversized knitwear, know that oversized doesn't have to mean that you're drowning in fabric. An oversized knit should be slightly loose and have plenty of room for you to wear other garments with different textures and thicknesses underneath to create an elegant layered look.

Paying close attention to what you wear underneath also helps to define your look. Form-fitting sweaters and trousers or belted dresses will ensure you retain an streamlined silhouette, while mixing fabrics and textures with your snug cashmere will help balance your outfit.
