how to wear a men's sweater

With the temps steadily dropping, the one thing I want to do is snuggle up in a good sweater. And what defines a “good” sweater? For me it’s oversized and super soft. And I surprisingly find a lot of these “good” sweaters in the men’s department. Yup, I shop the men’s section for sweaters and button downs.

While at the Salvation Army a few weeks ago, I found a cardigan I knew I had to have. It’s a size 3X but oversized pieces are easy and fun to dress up.
Instead of letting the sweater leave my body looking like a shapeless blob, I paired it with form fitting, feminine pieces like a simple t-shirt, Charlotte Russe plaid pumps and my favorite jeans from TJ Maxx.
Besides my metallic envelope clutch, my accessories were limited to a layered silver necklace {a gift from one of the awesome attendees of Swap Your Closet} and a beaded necklace from Jilzara.
Whether you choose to hit up a store or raid your guy’s closet, don’t overlook the awesomeness that the men’s section has to offer.
Do you ever venture in to the men’s department? Have you borrowed any of your guy’s clothes for your own wardrobe?

  1. I totally shop the mens department at the thrift store! It’s one of my favorite tricks to finding great staple pieces. I recently did a post and you tube video on my love of my “Cosby sweaters” I’ve found at the thrift store lol.

  2. I have never thought to shop at the men’s section till I saw this. Wow! You even wore 2 neck pieces at the same time and made it look good. This blog is totally inspirational.

    • Thanks so much Julz.

      And yes, the men’s section can be a great resource. I might even do a post or video strictly devoted to shopping in the men’s department and seeing what I find. So stay tuned!
