Laura’s Tips: How To Style The Oversized Cardigan

If you love cold weather layers as much as we do at AEO, you’ve come to the right place. Winter is the perfect season to mix fabrics, patterns and textures thanks to layering. One of our favorite layers this year is the cardigan, thanks to amazing designs like the cascading open frontshawl collar, and drapey fit. Gone are the days of frumpy, boring silhouettes: enter the updated oversized cardi! We asked our Styling Manager, Laura, to show us three of her favorite looks and to give us some tips so that we can wear the oversized cardigan with confidence. Check out her tips below and shop each look to find your own new layering BFF.

How To Style The Oversized Cardigan

Look 1: Feminine Edge
Balance your feminine and edgy personalities with a chunky cardigan. Sticking to the same neutral color family makes it easy to mix textures and styles. Lace detailing on top and destructed, black denim below create an effortless look when paired back to a boucle knit. Finish the look with heeled clogs for a fresh take on the cozy trend.

AEO Lace Cami
Jegging
BC Like Clockwork Clog

Look 2: Retro Comfort
We love the subtle, retro vibes in this look. Make your look pop with a boho lacy tank that won’t get lost beneath a bold, waterfall cardigan. Perfect for a retro-meets-modern feel, add denim in an trendy silhouette like the Tomgirl jean, and complete the outfit with old-school cool Swedish Hasbeens clogs.

Look 3: Free-Spirited Cozy
Make a statement by wearing patterns + graphics together, and  let your free-spirited side shine. Wrap yourself up in this oversized, patterned cardigan and stay cozy in Minnetonka fringe sneakers. Contrast the cardi with a bold graphic t-shirt (from our Soft & Sexy line!), and pair everything back to denim in a unique indigo wash.
