Stylish notes on Fashion :: Can slouchy be stylish?


Give me comfort. Give me beauty. Give me style, but above all give me comfort! 

I can't remember a time when I was not madly in love with the over-sized, slouchy sweater. I wear them a little differently than I did when I was in prep school and in college, but I love them just as much. I believe, that when paired with a well fitted pair of jeans, tailored pants or leggings, an over-sized sweater can not only be flattering, but it can indeed be stylish, if not even downright sexy. It's all a matter of how it's worn. Pair a large sweater with leggings and ballet flats, boots and skinny jeans or, slim pants or shorts and a delicate pair of heels. If you've got the legs for it, you can even wear one as a mini dress. This look which is comfortable, and casual can also be quite sophisticated. It's also a look that is quite versatile -  perfect for a stroll in the country, window shopping in the city, to work and then to dinner. It's also the perfect piece to transition your wardrobe for fall. If you happened to have seen the New York Times Style Magazine section this weekend, you might have noticed slouchy and oversized knits, coats and pants gracing many of its pages as well.
