HOW TO WEAR : OVERSIZED SWEATERS + OOTD

Winter is here.Nothing reminds me of winters as much as chunky knits do.They are comfy,they look cool(but keep you warm) and for someone who has despised winters all her life(yep! that'll be me), the only thing that sounds promising are baggy sweaters (and trench coats).

But many of us look at them at the stores clueless and wondering -" how on earth is someone supposed to wear them?" or- "oh my Good Lord, they are huge enough to engulf a baby whale."

Which is exactly why I compiled a list of ideas to help you wear the baggy beauties like the chic girl.Even if you already know how to style them, you are going to love this post and also find some more amazing and creative ways of wearing the chunky knits.

With skinny jeans or jeggings

This is the most common way of styling your over sized sweaters.Why only skinny jeans/jeggings?Why not the wide ones?Now since the sweaters are so loose, the outfit must be balanced by pairing them with skinny bottoms.Wear it with ankle boots and a beanie.


Over a shirt and cigarette pants

If your baggy sweater is not too long, you can wear it over a shirt.The little peek-a-boo your shirt plays from underneath that sweater earns your overall look a style score.


The funky look

Wear you printed baggy sweater with black leggings and bright coloured flats and bag.See the image below.Doesn't she look adorable? 


With mini skirt/dress and tights

Don't put away your short skirts yet.Wear them under your huge sweaters.You can similarly wear your short dresses underneath your sweater.Make sure the sweater is short enough to fall just below your hips.Cover your legs with tights.

With over the knee boots

If your sweaters are long enough to cover most of your upper legs, you can pair them with OTK boots.Or if the weather gets more chilly, you may cover up your legs with tights.


Tuck them

Wear them with a pair of jeans and tuck a little at the front.This way you don't end up looking bulky.Do not tuck it all the way though.Just a little portion at the front.


Like a rock star

If you live in a city where it doesn't get too cold, you can pair them with distressed shorts.Tuck the front, add a cool headgear or scarf and look chic as a rock star.


Add a belt

If you are too worried about looking bulky or you want a more feminine defined silhouette , you can wear a belt on the slimmest part of your waist.

OOTD : How to wear a trench coat this winter

Best thing about winters? TRENCH COATS ! Oh my god, they look so damn classy.I wish I had one in every colour.Actually I think I would have got them all if only they weren't so pricey 😦😦.But it is definitely worth owning at least one since they are never going out of style; nor can you ever be too old to wear one.



Before I come to my outfit post,I have a few tips for you to keep in mind while buying a trench coat that suits you the best.
According to your shape  If you are top heavy avoid anything bulky like heavy collars or embellishments or huge buckles.Also look for single breast coats to avoid looking too big.If you are generously blessed on the bottom half of your body, look for straight coats that are longer and do not fall midway or just below your hips(that is going to make you look bigger on the bottom). If you have a tiny bosom, look for trench coats that define your waist and have big collars.Double breast coats will flatter you.If you are leaner down the waist, wea…

OOTD : Black Magic

hey everyone,
How did you spend this Valentine?I am so happy its spring again.Can I please please have spring all year round?
Anyway I am back with another outfit post.I am so excited for this one.Why?Because I look pretty in this outfit 😄😄
I love Indian wear.But I don't usually wear them much.And when I do, I try to experiment.Because I don't want to make it all boring with the same kurtis and salwar/churidars.Check out how I wore my kurti today.




I recently got this ethnic black jacket with golden print.I really love it so much.Isn't it really gorgeous?You can buy it from the link at the end of this post.
So this jacket was a total show-stopper.I didn't want anything else to steal its limelight.So I wore it over a plain black kurti and black cropped jeans.Black and gold are my favourite combination.I have accessorised the whole outfit with golden accessories- a golden anklet,rings and a rose gold watch.My bright red painted nails and lipstick makes the whole outfi…

Slip Dress : wear it like the 'It' girls do

What's not to love in a slip dress? They are feminine.They are delicate.And boy! are they sexy.The only problem?They are not college/work appropriate.Or are they? *wink wink*
Fashionistas all around the globe are giving us major fashion inspiration these days by wearing their slip dresses over a tee.Go through instagram/pinterest and your feed will be flooded with this trend.I say, the boss is always right.I took inspiration from this trend and paired my black slip dress with a white tee(the classic) and this is how it turned out.



 I wore my black dress over a white tee.You can also wear it over a striped one.

I experimented a little with the look by wrapping a plaid shirt around my waist.You can also tie a chambray shirt.Let it stand out from the base colours (white and black).

 Looks like we are not getting over the chokers anytime soon,are we?

 White sneakers are another huge trend taking over the fashion world at present.You will see them everywhere;with jeans,with shorts,wi…
