As the cold Michigan winter quickly approaches, it’s time to break out the oversized sweaters and jackets. Here at MSU, we are lucky to have plenty of great stores available to us up and down Grand River, which means easy access to all new pieces for the season. One of our go-to stores is Urban Outfitters, so we took a trip there and spent an afternoon picking out some of our favorite pieces to create outfits that can easily transition you into the start of winter. Offering a mix of comfortable, chic and casual, these pieces will be new staples in your wardrobe.
OUTFIT 1: WHITE SWEATER WITH JOGGERS
For the first outfit, we chose an oversized sweater and paired it with some jogger-style pants. Even though the sweater has a high-low style, you can still pull it off at the beginning of the season on those days when it’s not too cold. Joggers can be a great way to make an outfit more casual, but this specific pair has a chicer vibe to it, allowing you to take the look in a different direction. To tie the whole outfit together, we chose to wear a pair of black mules. These shoes are simple, yet they still offer a little something more to the outfit.
OUTFIT 2: WHITE SWEATER WITH BLUE JEANS
For the next outfit, we chose to keep the sweater from the previous outfit, but replace the joggers with a pair of ripped jeans that have a frayed hem. By making this switch, we were able to transition the look to something a bit more casual that can take you wherever you need to go during your day. Add your favorite pair of white sneakers, and you’re ready to go.
OUTFIT 3: GREY CARDIGAN WITH BLACK SHIRT
For this outfit, we went with a cozy grey cardigan and paired it with a basic black top and a pair of black jeans that have an added twist from the detailing on the side of the legs. The cardigan can act as a jacket on the days when it’s a little warmer, and if you’re looking for something less cropped than the black shirt, you can always opt for a different basic shirt. This outfit is perfect for those days when you want to look cute but still be comfortable.
OUTFIT 4: GREY CARDIGAN WITH BLUSH SHIRT
For this last outfit, we chose to keep the pieces from the previous outfit, but replace the black shirt with something that takes the outfit in a different, slightly more fun, direction. If you’re looking to add a pop of color to an outfit like this, this is the perfect shirt for you. It can take you through your day-to-day activities, or you can even go out in it if you wanted to remove the cardigan.
