A must have trend that hit the catwalk this Fall/Winter 2011 season is the oversized, chunky sweater. From Marc Jacobs to Tracy Reese, designers are bringing back the 80’s and 90’s “oversized sweater” in a cool and modern way. Designers are taking this retro style and bringing it from frumpy to fabulous. Now that the weather is changing and we’re all getting ready to endure the dreaded Syracuse winters, its time to break out your snuggly oversized knits! From the oversized chunky knit cardigan to the comfy cable knit sweater you’ll be able to stay fashionably functional this season. From stripes to animal print to bold colors to the peak-a-boo look, you’ll have plenty of options when shopping for this new fall/winter staple. Not only is this one of the most wearable fashion trends hitting the runway but it’s extremely versatile as well. This trend is perfect all year round. Pair it with your fave denim cut-offs or mini bandage skirt for a super comfy, casual fall look. As the weather changes, try pairing it with your favorite leggings, skinnies or even your favorite maxi skirt for a très chic ensemble.
