True or False: Oversized sweaters make women look frumpy. So, so false.

Loose-fitting knits are one of this season’s most popular trends. However, some women are a little leery of donning the piece for fear of losing their silhouette underneath all that extra fabric.

Well, we’re here to encourage all you weary stylistas to try this look on for size one more time, with a little styling help from yours truly.

The trick is to balance these heavy knits with body-hugging bottoms, like skinny jeans, leather leggings or a sleek pencil skirt. This pairing ensures that your body will stay looking slim, not stout. You can dress up the look with pointed-toe heels or riding boots, and to make it extra swanky, try adding a statement necklace!
