How to wear the baggy sweater

Written by Caitlin Restelli. Posted in Accessories, Trends

Let me introduce you to my latest fashion obsession: Baggy sweaters. They are unbelievably comfortable, and you can wear them with jeans, leggings or skirts.

A solid-color sweater can be embellished with a simple belt worn around the waist or higher, depending on what looks best with your body type. If you want the sweater to just hang, a different colored scarf will accompany it well.

I recommend pairing your baggy sweater with straight-leg jeans or leggings so that you can wear boots with the outfit. Baggy sweaters don’t have a shape to them, they just hang — as they are supposed to — therefore tight jeans are more flattering than flared jeans. It helps to show your body shape again. Whereas if you were to wear looser jeans, your body shape would be lost completely.

If you want to wear a short, flowy shirt and leggings make sure the sweater doesn’t go beyond the skirt. Sometimes and can be tricky to complete this outfit, but if you do it right, it looks cute.

While you’re making a quick trip to Starbucks to start your day or running around campus all day, a baggy sweater is comfy and stylish — it’s the best of both worlds.

My favorite finds

Written by Emily Marshall. Posted in Accessories, Shoes

I love shopping. I mean I really love shopping. I love buying things, I love going to the stores and I really love brining those purchases home.

Sometimes I buy useful things like black pants, jeans and tights. Other times I buy completely ridiculous things like say a long sleeve, red, beaded dress that may weigh five pounds. (I mean what girl doesn’t have one of those hanging her closet?)

But then there are the rare occasions when I just happen to pick something up and buy it because its pretty inexpensive and looks cute in the store. These purchases are the best ones. At first, I like them and then the more I wear them the more I love them. I would almost call them magical purchases.

They say when you buy something you should figure out the cost per wear, that way you will get your money’s worth of that item. Well a few items in my closet are basically paying me now for the amount of times I wear them!

These inexpensive items are now my wardrobe staples:

1)     The sweater– OK, technically my sister found this sweater but I stole it from her. It was only 50 cents at a thrift store. It’s super soft and the best part is … it’s Christian Dior!

2)     The skirt– The skirt was only $12.50 at Forever 21, and I have had it for three years. It just a basic blue navy skirt that goes with everything and always comes in handy.
