Ralph LaurenDoes it get any better for moms this season?

Oversized sweaters and long, cozy cardigans are one of the hottest looks for fall- and this is a trend a stylish mom can work into her wardrobe whether she's sitting on the sidelines at Little League football, presiding over a PTA meeting, or shopping with friends on Madison Avenue.

Read on to find out how to wear this season's slouchy sweaters, whether you're a size six or a size 16!





Oversized sweaters look fantastic with slim fitting pants or leggings (just make sure they extend at least to mid-thigh), but you can also wear them in some unexpected ways, like pairing them with boots and a tailored pair of shorts.



Larger women might try this look with a tailored pair of pants and comfortable heels. It also helps to match your sweater with your pants for a more streamlined look.

GapThis Oversized V-Neck Sweater (Gap, $34.99 on sale) is getting rave reviews from customers. It comes in lots of different colors and I just ordered one for myself in red. I love the deep v-neck, which keeps it from feeling too frumpy.


Victoria's SecretThis Cotton Cable Boyfriend Cardigan (Victoria's Secret, $49) also comes in lots of pretty colors and has a relaxed, yet potentially sexy appeal.


Urban OutfittersI also like the relaxed appeal and wide neckline of this Sparkle & Fade Dolman Sleeve Pullover Sweater (Urban Outfitters, $48). It also comes in black.


GapIt doesn't get any cozier than this open front dolman cardigan (Gap, $39.99 on sale). Love.


SplendidAnd if you're into a less-chunky, more streamlined look, I recommend this very light jersey wrap (Splendid, $63), which comes in a ton of colors.
