This Fendi runway look inspired us to show you how to take an old fall staple — the oversized knit sweater — and turn it into an ultra-hip, hot summer minidress. It’s all about how you style a look that makes it work, and to make sure you’re far ahead of the fashion curve, wear a chunky, baggy, long knit sweater with our suggested add-ons to pull this off flawlessly.
While some designers showed knits for summer, done in unexpected ways, knits are not typical summer fare. Use your imagination when it comes to style, and you’ll stand out as an individual who doesn’t follow trends, but sets them. Start by setting the trend on looking like you slipped into your boyfriend (or Grandpa’s) oversized knit and forgot your pants. But on purpose.
How To Wear
First, choose a knit that’s lightweight and long enough to be a dress. No pants, no problem — as long as you can’t see underpants. Layering your knit over a white shirtdress with structure and crisp appeal is another option. Heels need to be towering for this look, and edgy straps and metallic details on this Diesel pair balance the preppy look perfectly. Finally, futuristic touches in a sleek bag and shades are the ticket to your next appearance on a street style blog — we’re sure of it.
