I grew up in suburban Long Island. With that came an unspoken appreciation for all things "burb". Mini-van's, backyards and trips to the Gap. It's true, for some reason EVERYONE worshiped the Gap when I was growing up. And with the love for the Gap came a love for preppy styles and chunky / cable knit sweaters. I always loved them. The problem then, and the problem now, is that as a plus size woman it is sometimes difficult to find a sweater that is flattering and doesn't add bulk. Which is why when I find a slightly oversized, chunky/ribbed/textured ANYTHING that doesn't add bulk and flatters my size 18/20 body I am ready to share it w/ the world.
This ribbed swing sweater from Woman Within c/o Full Beauty is the perfect fit. Slightly oversized, but still a bit fitted so I don't lose the little bit of actually waist definition I have. I love the fact that its a funnel neck and not a full turtleneck (I don't know about you guys but I get hot so fast, and then it's like "hkjhkdshkghsgkgh get this off of me") and the length is ideal for paring it with everything from jeans to leggings- like I did for this look.
Style Tip: Pair oversized items and knits with more form-fitted pieces like leggings or skinny jeans to combat the bulk. It will streamline the look and create clean lines and a strong balance. *Especially smart for those with a bigger midsection but shaplier legs (like me :))
