I'm loving the look of cozy oversized sweaters this fall and winter. Every time I see a photo of someone wearing one (like the ones above via Pinterest) I think, "wow, those would be pretty easy to thirft" and also "oooh cute". It seems like the trick is pairing the sweater with something tighter on the bottom.
Thrifting without a goal can be daunting sometimes. When I look at blogs, watch movies and TV, etc, my eyes are always peeled for thrifting inspiration. My plan is to occasionally post some of those inspirations.
My muse for oversized sweater thrifting is Linda Evangelista in one of my all time favorite music videos, George Michael's Freedom '90. For some reason, I've always thought of this sweater in the back of my mind. I like to imagine living in a drafty loft, making tea and curling up with a sweater pulled over my knees. Do you have an article of clothing that evokes emotion or catapults you into a fantasy world?
To me her sweater is the perfect combination of cozy and sexy. She is sexy, so that probably helps. My fave part is when she pulls the sweater over her head and you can see the light stream in through the knit.
What makes us like certain clothing? I think it is because they make us feel good. Oversized sweaters make me feel good. Time to go thrifting and find one.
