An oversized cardigan is the best choice for a girl with wide shoulders, yet with a slender body. In this case, a voluminous cardigan will not fall off the shoulders, but at the same time it will emphasize the elegance of the silhouette. On petite girls voluminous things do not always look good, because they visually make the figure even more shorter, that’s why I recommend skipping this trend for petites.

What to wear with an oversized cardigan?
This garment can be easily combined with form-fitting bottoms, like jeggings and leggings, skinny jeans, tight-fitting bicycle shorts, denim cut-offs, leggings and narrowed trousers. Voluminous cardigans look good with regular fit ripped jeans. A good solution for a cocoon-shaped cardigan is a short sheath dress, a pencil skirt combined with a tight blouse or a turtleneck, but you an also try it on with a fitted shirt and a narrowed skirt with a high fit.
Shoes and bags
Yes, you definitely can make an oversized cardigan look amazing with the help of shoes and accessories. An oversized cardigan, will sparkle with new colors, if the outfit is diversified by eye-catching pumps and a stylish clutch.

5 thoughts on “Oversized Cardigans For Women: Yay or Nay”
You can never have too many cardigans. Love these oversized designs they are so easy to combine with jeans and other clothes
as a woman, you know that there are some clothing pieces that work better on different body types. Since oversized cardigans are usually made of large pieces of fabric and they may not be flattering to your body type, you should avoid them if you’re petite. Also, remember that wearing an oversized cardigan with a pair of tight jeans is never the best idea. Oversized cardigans might also look better on someone who has a curvy figure as opposed to someone with a skinny frame.
I disagree with you! Oversized cardigans for women are the best thing that ever happened to fashion. I say go for it and be confident in your choice because oversized cardigans should feel like a hug of warmth when you put them on. Plus, they’re great to wear as an outer layer or even over dresses or tops in the winter time.
But if you’re not comfortable wearing an oversized cardigan, then what’s wrong with that? You don’t have to wear a trend just because everyone else is doing it! There’s no shame in not being up on the latest trends.
for many, a large cardigan has become the perfect layering piece for fall. It provides comfort in the cooler weather and can be easily worn with just about any outfit.
However, I am not so sure that I agree with this fashion trend. To me, it just seems like these cardigans are too big and bulky for any woman to wear casually. They look a bit like quilts or blankets draped across the body – which may not be as flattering as many believe. In my opinion, oversized cardigans are best reserved for when you’re both cold and bundled up in bed – or when you’re wearing winter clothing over your clothes (such as snow pants).
as a whole, oversized cardigans on women are not too flattering. Most of them look like they were just pulled off the shelf, some of them with coffee stains on the collar. This paired with a pair of loose-fitting slacks is not attractive. I am not against oversized cardigans for women by any means, but I would say that I am more partial to ones that are size.
