Between the fact that it was nearly snowing this weekend, and that it seems this belly of mine has recently “popped,” I can’t get enough of cozy, oversized sweaters these days–and this one is my favorite one to date!

Generally, Topshop has always run a bit big for me and, since their clothing doesn’t come in petite sizing, I often cannot wear them (unless I want to commit to tailoring, of course). With my new figure, though, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to take advantage of their generous sizing.

(Note: If you’re new to Topshop, be advised that they use British sizing so you’ll wear one size larger than your usual size. For example, I normally wear an 00 or 0, so I would purchase the size 2.)

I’ve worn this sweater no less than four times thus far, and I only got it a little over a week ago. It’s been the coziest option for throwing on with a pair of skinny work pants and pumps, these distressed jeans and booties, or even a pair of leggings and knitted socks. The fabric quality is great–very heavy and well-made, which I appreciate. The structure means it’s not losing its shape or showing wear after my constant use.

It comes in three colors: navy, rust, and this beige. Unfortunately, the beige is currently sold out, but it’s been in and out of stock, so keep your eye on it. I also love the rust option for this time of year–absolutely perfect for fall.

Side note: you’re probably noticing that I’m sticking to a pretty neutral color palette throughout my pregnancy. I’ve got a fairly solid capsule wardrobe together at this point, and the defined/neutral palette has made mixing and matching to create new outfit combinations very simple. I knew I didn’t want to invest in a huge maternity wardrobe, so this has been my way of extending my existing wardrobe with my maternity wardrobe. (More on my must-have maternity pieces later this week.)

But back to cozy sweaters, what are you guys’ favorite brands and retailers for fall sweaters?
