How To Style Over The Knee Socks

Some of my favorite pieces I own don’t come from the standard woman’s department. I’m a sucker for anything oversized (comfort is key!) so I often turn towards the men’s department for cozy knits or the larger sizes as I did with this outfit. I had been searching near & far for a cute sweater dress to wear with OTK boots & socks yet everyone I found with either too short, too long, too bulky, not the right color, etc. That’s when I resorted back to my method above & started browsing in other sections of H&M (where I was at the time). I found this grey sweater & got it two sizes larger than I normally would wear to add an oversized effect & some much needed length at the bottom if I was going to wear it as a dress.

      I’m the same way, Mary Kate!! Thought swapping knee high socks for leggings was the perfect formal alternative! xo
