5 Oversized Sweaters From Free People: A Try-On


Free People has always made the best oversized sweaters…I’ve been wearing them for years now. “Tunic” sweaters might sound outdated, but…I mean…let’s call ’em what they are, shall we?

I’ve worn mine with mini skirts and tall boots, with skinny jeans, over denim shorts…and even with sequin leggings if we go waaaaay back. I styled one up multiple ways riiight before the pandemic hit and obviously didn’t get the chance to use any of those outfits for awhile. Some of them are now seriously outdated (hello, skinnies & OTK boots), but in general, oversized sweaters/tunics are still a major go-to of mine.

Free People always makes the best oversized sweaters, & these 5 tunics are cozy, comfy & perfect for fall. I'll be wearing them on repeat all season long.

Tunics, er, oversized sweaters are just crazy versatile — they can be dressed up to look downright fancy, but pair just as easily with some leggings and slippers for a cozy night at home.

I mean, if I were to wear these exact outfits now, I might make a few tweaks, but overall these are still some of my favorites. And the fact that they’re cozy and comfy make them perfect for fall too.

On Repeat This Fall: 5 Oversized Tunic Sweaters From Free People

I ordered a bunch of Free People sweaters in multiple sizes and colors and rounded up my top 5 to share with you guys. These are the sweaters I’m going to be wearing on repeat this fall and winter. (And I’m going to style one up with fresh ideas for 2023…stay tuned!)

1. Free People Alli V-Neck Sweater

True to Free People sizing, the Alli V-Neck Sweater runs really big.

The COLORS this one comes in! 😍 They’re all vibrant and gorgeous. True to Free People sizing, the Alli V-Neck Sweater runs really big. I think I’ll size down to an XS, but I LOVE the color, dropped shoulders and longer arm cuffs on the sleeve.

2. Free People Ottoman Slouchy Tunic

This slouchy tunic sweater from Free People has been a favorite of mine for years.

This slouchy tunic sweater has been a favorite of mine for years… In fact, I did a post on how to style this tunic back in 2021, and it’s still in heavy rotation in my closet. Something about the neckline, the drape of the body and the colors… I’m wearing a small here (wore an XS in the older post), and I think I like the oversized look a bit more. I love that Free People keeps updating the colors but doesn’t change the sweater itself.

3. Free People Teddy Sweater Tunic

Free People's Teddy Sweater Tunic is so soft & deliciously cozy.

COZY. Free People’s Teddy Sweater Tunic is so soft and deliciously cozy. I recently layered it under my Zella jacket (and was glad I sized up in the jacket for layering over sweaters like this one).

4. Free People Orion A-Line Tunic Sweater

The Free People Orion A-Line Tunic Sweater is definitely oversized, and I love the way the hemline drapes.

The Orion A-Line Tunic Sweater is definitely oversized, and I love the way the hemline drapes. The deep-V can be sexy (love wearing layered necklaces with this one) and worn off the shoulder as well. The long sleeves are so good.

This Free People tunic sweater would be great for postpartum & nursing!

I wanted to include another angle to show off the slits on either side. The first thing I thought when I tried this one on was how great it would’ve been for postpartum…both for post-pregnancy bodies and nursing! I’d either wear a nursing tank or lacy bralette underneath, and there’s enough fabric to easily fit baby underneath. LOVE.

5. Free People Sublime Oversize Pullover Sweater

The Free People Sublime Oversize Pullover Sweater is the perfect wear-with-everything top.

OK, so the Sublime Oversize Pullover Sweater is obviously not a tunic sweater, but I had to include it because it’s an easy wear-with-everything sweater (and the cropped length goes really well with higher-rise jeans). I love the slouchy fit and the fact that it can be worn off the shoulder. It has a slightly longer hem in the back and drapes really nicely. (I just wish it came in more colors!)

Happy Sweater Season!!




  1. I love oversized but not boxy – I’m always hunting for narrow but drapey. How do the Ottoman and Teddy sweaters stack up in terms of narrow? It’s hard to tell from the pics.

  2. OOH, I love a giant sweater! please give us some posts on how to style them in a current way! my old go-to was leggings and tall boots. thinking that switching the shoes to chunky lug sole chelseas will update that look well enough.
