I’m sure you’ve heard quite a bit about the Nordstrom Pre-Fall Anniversary Sale. Even if you’re not interested in the sale (and the hype!), it may be time to think about your fall wardrobe. A comfy oversized sweater is a great place to start!
For a cool evening or a crisp fall day, nothing beats a sweater. You throw it on, choose your bottom piece–pants, jeans, skirt, whatever–add some shoes and jewelry and go!
For that reason, the first things I always look at for the #NSale are the sweaters. It doesn’t matter where you live, there is always an occasion to wear a sweater. Here along the coast, we often have a cool ocean layer blow in and a sweater is just right to wear.
So, today I’m sharing the first of my trove of sale pieces from the Nordstrom Sale in this oversized sweater outfit. If for no other reason than to give you some inspiration for the coming season!
The Oversized Sweater Outfit
The Slouchy Sweater
It seems that shades of purple, like lilac, orchid, lavender, plum, violet–you name it–are popping up everywhere for fall! Most everyone can wear at least one version of these hues. This sweater color is orchid and conjures up images of those beautiful flowers!
As the title suggests, the style is oversized, which means it’s loosely fitted. The shape is boxy which I really like in a casual piece.
Along with the boxy fit, the sweater has drop-shoulders which is also very flattering. The weave is a rib stitch with a bit of stretch and ribbed cuffs. The slightly mock-neck style is one that is easy to wear, especially if you are not a turtleneck gal!
This slouchy drop-shoulder sweater in a lightweight rib stitch is perfect for casual days. It also comes in Ivory, Black, and a gorgeous Emerald Green.
These skinny jeans by Wit & Wisdom are a steal. There is just enough stretch to fit perfectly and hold their shape. The “Ab-Solution” also helps to tame the tummy. While my pair is older, it shows how well these pants hold up. I’ve thrown them in the washer and dryer MANY times! For under $50, pick up a pair!
I love a simple black crossbody bag. it’s both a good thing and a not-so-good thing that they don’t hold a lot of things, isn’t it? The smaller size is perfect for running errands or a night out. Mine was a purchase from Loft that’s no longer available, but here is a Similar Crossbody Bag from Tory Burch (#NSale pricing!) It’s a bit pricey but is beautifully made and a handbag you can use year after year!
These heeled sandals first appeared in the post The Perfect Black Sweater Outfit for Fall. While they were a style from Clark’s from last year, you can still find a few pairs here and here. I get so many compliments for these shoes! Even though they are a heeled sandal technically, the look like a bootie, so they are a great pair of shoes for transitioning from summer to fall. Also, here is a Similar Heeled Sandals by Clarks.
A simple initial necklace and gold hoop earrings add the final touch to a simple oversize sweater outfit like this. You don’t need to add much!
