How To Wear A Cosby Sweater Without Looking Frumpy


I absolutely adore slouchy sweaters.  I first fell in love with the trend during the Cosby days when Denise would steal them out of her dad’s closet.  It’s a must-have staple for every girl’s closet this fall.  You’re totally out of the loop if you haven’t jumped on board!

A reader recently submitted a question inquiring about how to rock the trend without looking extra frumpy.

Before you grab your purse and run to your favorite store to pick one out – if you don’t already own one – keep these tips in mind.

  1. It’s all about proportion. If you think it’s cool to wear a slouchy sweater and slouchy pants, you’ve got it all wrong.  Slim-fitting pants are perfect to pair with this type of sweater.  It adds balance.
  2. Keep accessories to a minimum.  You never, ever want your jewelry to compete with your outfit.  Keep it fun and super minimal.
  3. Don’t be afraid to add a belt. Obviously, you don’t want to do this with a cropped sweater. If it’s larger than life, add a belt for shape.
  4. Don’t tuck your sweater. Sound silly?  This actually happens in real life and I’ve witnessed it.
  5. Have fun.  Don’t get so caught up in the fashion rules to where you can’t be yourself.  Try things like layering or even tying the garment around your waist.
