I bought this cardigan a few years ago from our local Giant Tiger. It was a "cheap and cheerful" add to my winter wardrobe and has held up amazingly well.
I love the oversized, slouchy cardigan trnd that I've been seeing all over - but as a plus-sized woman, I try to stay away from oversized articles of clothing. For a long time, plus sized women have been presented with oversized, shapeless, boxy options - which only serve to make you look bigger than you are, or hide your figure completely. Now - if you're into that, all power to ya - but I'm not into making myself look shapeless or larger than I am.
So I admit that I often shy away from wearing this cardigan because I don't want to look shapeless or sloppy.
I decided to try and balance out the slouchy/oversized aspects of the cardigan by wearing monochrome and very fitted pieces underneath. My sweetheart neckline tee from Torrid (which goes with everything and I need in like 10 more colours) and these faux leather - with almost a snakeskin like print - leggings that I picked up at one of our local thrift stores.
Some classic black pumps, gold jewellery, and a classic red lippie and I was feeling classy and festive for our annual friends Christmas party.
