How should an oversized jumper fit?

You might be wondering how oversized is too oversized when it comes to jumpers. There are countless different styles of oversized jumpers available on the market today, and there are no real rules about exactly how they should fit or be worn. However, you will probably want to ensure you don't go too baggy to avoid ending up with a jumper dress rather than a classic knit.

You will want your oversized jumper to have enough room for movement and enough length to be able to tuck or half-tuck into your bottoms, with some loose fabric around the arms and stomach. How baggy you go is up to you, but we would recommend aiming for a fit that looks a size or two bigger than your usual. This will ensure a cool oversized look that doesn't swallow your frame.

An oversized jumper is the perfect piece to invest in if you want to create an autumn/winter wardrobe that is both comfortable and chic. Whether you're working with a strict budget or have a little more cash to invest in a premium pick, any of these oversized jumpers will serve you well throughout the chillier months, and even work for what to wear skiing for added warmth.
