Would You Wear the Oversized Sweater as a Dress?

Wednesday October 6, 2010 by Hafsa

We’re all too familiar with the “sweater-dress,” but the newest trend takes it to the next level - the oversized baggy sweater as a dress!  Take a look at these celebrity fashion statements...


Throw on a striped, floral or funky-printed baggy sweater and pair it with your favourite tights, leggings or jeggings to stay warm. Here are some of our favourites:
Forever 21 Pointelle Colorblock Sweater, C$29.80
H&M Jumper, C$56

TopShop Knitted Chunky Stripe Jumper, US$80

TopShop Knitted Cocoon Jumper, US$90
French Connection Sydney Knits Beads, C$138

For your lower half, a basic legging or pair of tights will do...
Forever 21C$5.80, Forever 21C$6.80, Forever 21C$12.50, ZaraC$15.90

What do you think of this trend?  Will you wear the oversized sweater as a dress?

@Mamaluv, you totally said exactly what I was thinking! I would never wear any of that, even if I had tights underneath. Plus it seems like you'd get really hot, but yet cold without anything covering your legs, that probably sounds silly but that's how I would feel. I've heard many guys say how much they don't like the over sized sweater, too. I'm sure some wouldn't mind the exposed legs though...

Lilly Allen looks terrible, the Olsen girl looks a little silly and Rhihanna looks good. I don't think this trend should stick as most of the sweaters are hideous and anyone larger than XS/S would look frumpy in baggy grandpa jumpers.

I like Rihanna's outfit. I would probably wear one like that. I also like the chunky stripe, it would look great with tights.

Of the celebrities above I think Rhi-rhi is the only one pulling it off. Sorry to say.

I don't think I could pull this off, I'm a petite a huge oversized sweater like that would totally overwhelm me! I'd rather do a sweater jacket/cardigan with a belt, leggings and boots.

I think I might just look like a ball of wool if I ever tried this!

OR I could be creative and go with a green sweater and some brown leggings... there you go, instant tree! Chic(?) and eco-friendly :)
