3 Easy Tips for Styling an Oversized Dress

By Wednesday, January 3, 2018 10

I recently received a package from H&M and one of the items I ordered was missing and had been replaced with this sweater dress. Even though I still loved it, I was bummed to see it wasn’t my size. Since the mix-up wasn’t my fault, customer care told me I could keep the dress, which led me to the idea for this post. I figured why waste a pretty sweater if I could find a way to wear it?While I typically wear an XS or S in H&M clothing, this dress is a size Medium. With a few adjustments, I was still able to wear it, and a bonus from being too large is that it felt like being wrapped in a blanket—SO cozy! Whether you accidentally receive the wrong size or you experience weight loss, these simple tips can help you pull off an oversized dress.

3 Easy Tips for Styling an Oversized Dress

  • Create more shape at the waistline with a wide belt
  • Wear heels (unless you’re blessed with height, nothing will overwhelm your frame faster than wearing flats with an oversized dress)
  • Carry a small handbag (this may sound strange, but it really does help create visual balance with this type of outfit)

Anyone started/working on their New Year’s resolutions this week? I’m still thinking about mine and would love to hear yours!
