If you know me a little bit, you know that I am obsessed with a white on white look all year round, and how much I love oversized sweaters. And when it comes to these babies, I can’t imagine one worn just by itself, without at least another garment layered under it.
I have come to the conclusion that the best layering pieces for oversized sweaters are dresses. Most tops just won’t help as they will not be visible under an oversized, chunky sweater with a certain length. A dress that ends in the middle of your hip is ideal. But even a longer one could work if you tuck it into a belt to make it look shorter.
As you see in the photos, I wore this white on white look in two different ways, to show you how you can play with your outfit. In the first version, I am wearing my coat and hold my bag as a handbag, showing a proper amount of sweater under my coat sleeves. On the second one I am wearing my bag as a crossbody, and have draped my coat over my shoulders. That way it looks more laid-back and casual than the first version, and a bit cooler. Since my coat, sweater and the dress I am wearing under it are all white and there is no color contrast, I tried to create a contrast by choosing different textures. What do you think?
Tips For Layering An Oversized Sweater:
- Wear it over a dress or tunic top that is at least 3-4 cm longer than your sweater.
- Loose bottom round sweaters without tight cuffs are perfect for layering.
- For a relaxed approach to preppy dressing, wear your oversized sweater over a button-up.
- A high-low cut sweater like the one I am wearing is a must-have for fans of layering
- Pair it with a slip dress and ankle boots.
- You don’t have to play it safe, you can also mix patterns when layering, it is much more fun!

Hello my dear Daniela! Thank you so much for your lovely comment. As for my hair, I do not dye them so I think this is the most important factor for healthy looking hair, along with nutrition of course. I also do not style them a lot with hair irons and rarely use products like hairspray! 😉 Have a wonderful evening too and a great start to the weekend! xoxo
Oh my god I love this, you look incredible! I am definitely taking inspiration from this post anyway, well done on you lovely blog too, I love it!! x

I love a great white look! I don’t own a lot of white itmes myself, because I always get them dirty so quickly, haha!
I have long loved white on white. Whether it be big fluffy white bathtowels or crisp white bed linen. It just oozes niceness.
And you, Stella. You look soo pretty in layers of white.
Have a lovely weekend.
Layering is a must in winter so definitely have been doing that! I like adding a long sleeve with a cardigan and adding a scarf.
Also love those boots!
Dear Stella, I love the layering in this post and white on white looks great on you. I think you did a great job! Well done on this lovely style! The coat is very nice and your hair looks very beautiful!

¡Qué outfit tan ideal, me encanta!
You pull off the white styling/look so well and I love the layering…That coat is also perfection! =D
Hi Stella, like you I am an all white fan – however I usually don’t do shoes – but have to admit your boots look fab.
I’ve been thinking about an all white look since your Athens outfit. It is very challenging to find the right textures for a winter-y look Stella! I love how versatile this outfit looks by changing the way how to wear the coat. Simly love it:)
