How to Rock the Oversized Clothing Trend

Who would have thought oversized clothing would be so stylish today? Baggy clothes have been creating waves and many people especially celebrities have been using this ensemble as a trendy fashion statement. I have fallen in love with the oversized trend myself. I featured it some days ago, and I have been wearing quite a few oversized pieces in the last couple of days. So I decided to write up a post with tips on how to rock the oversized trend, so here is it.

Like every outfit, there is a right and wrong way to styling oversized clothing. The key to rocking oversized outfits is to strive to achieve a balance. Keeping baggy clothing to proportion is what will make you look stylish.

Here are simple tips that will help you make oversized outfits work for you.

  1. Baggy top + Fitting bottoms = Perfect match

With every oversized clothing, proportion and balance is key. That is the most important rule when it comes to styling oversized clothes and this equation is a perfect example.

Whenever you’re wearing an oversized or loose top, combine it with well fitted bottoms like skinny jeans or leggings. This gives you a more evened out silhouette.

You can complete this look with a pair of gorgeous looking heels.

 

  1. Baggy top + Short bottoms = Cute pair

The equation looks like complete opposites as large is competing with short but it still follows the rule on proportion and balance.

Alluring outfits start with contrasting combination. So in this case a baggy T-shirt or oversized sweater with a pair of shorts or short skirt can be a stylish and fun ensemble. However, make sure your shorts or skirt is not too short that it gets lost under your oversized top. That will make you look awkward as it will seem like all you have on is a baggy top. To be safe, always make sure the hem of your shorts or skirt sticks out from underneath.

 

  1. Baggy top + belt = Flattering Figure

Wearing an oversized top is great to hide areas you are not quite comfortable with, but at the same time it could also hides your assets.

Using a belt can make a big difference and help show off your flattering figure. Place a belt around the middle to flatter your waist and give your top a curvy shape. This simple trick will make your waist look smaller and show off an hour-glass figure.

  1. Fitted top + Baggy bottom = Comfy combo

Oversized styles do not only work for tops. It works for bottoms too. But, as always, balance is key.

A fitted top over baggy bottoms like yoga pants, boyfriend jeans and plaazzo pants keep this rule perfectly. The fitted top keeps you looking slim while the baggy bottoms keep it evened out, thus giving the perfect contrast.

This combination gives the aura of laid back and comfortable.

 

  1. Oversized jacket + Heels = Tall and Trendy

Oversized also goes to jackets and with an oversized jacket, you can experience a wow effect with this simple tip: add a pair of heels to the mix.

An oversized jacket is actually long, most times going below your waist. This creates a longer torso but when you wear a pair of good-looking heels you get longer legs thus making you look so much taller than you really are.

Choose heels that are the same colour with your bottoms. This will give the illusion that your legs are long. The same works when you wear long trousers that cover your heels.

Best Hair Oils for Hair Growth

Believe it or not our natural hair goes through a lot of strain. Harsh chemicals from hair care products, constant styling and environmental changes can really affect our natural hair growth. When you add stress from work, school or family life and a poor diet or eating habits, it’s not surprising why hair loss is slowly becoming a major concern.

Thankfully, nature has come to the rescue. It has been discovered that natural oils contain potential elements like vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that can add life, lustre and shine to our hair. Of course, these natural oils work excellently for hair growth as well as providing additional benefits. The best part about these oils is that they are completely natural. So, no need to worry about your hair being damaged by harsh chemicals or horrible side effects.

Here are some of the natural oils that you should get your hands on if you want to have beautiful long hair.

 

  1. Olive oil

Extracted from the olive fruit, olive oil has been known for centuries for its amazing health benefits. Olive oil is rich in vitamin E which does wonders to moisturize your hair and scalp and sealing in the moisture. This gives the hair the right environment to grow healthily.

Olive oil also helps to prevent DTH Hormone production. The DTH hormone is the one that causes the hair follicle shaft to narrow. When this happens your hair thins out and loses its lustre.

When shopping around for olive oil make sure you go for high quality virgin or extra virgin olive oil to get the best results for your hair.

 

  1. Coconut Oil

I am a huge fan of coconut oil. I love the fact that it is so versatile. I like to have a few jars of coconut oil in my house.

Just like olive oil, it helps to moisturize your hair. The fatty acids contained in the coconut promote hair growth. It does that by working with the natural proteins in your hair to strengthen and protect it from breaking.

When you massage the oil on your scalp, it boosts blood circulation. This makes the blood vessels on your scalp come to life, making it easier for the nutrients in your blood flow to the hair follicles and promote hair growth.

Consistent application of coconut oil will make your hair thicker, healthier and longer.

 

  1. Almond oil

Although used for aroma therapy, almond oil does wonders for the hair.  The vitamins in Almond oil helps to strengthen, nourish and smoothen the hair. The Vitamin E contained in almond oil makes it an excellent hair conditioner, leaving your hair nice and soft.

Almond oil also penetrates deep into the hair follicle providing the hair cuticles the needed nutrients to keep it strong and promote hair growth.

 

  1. Avocado oil

We hear a lot about avocados being used for facials but it works just as well on our hair too. Avocado is a conditioner and it helps to restore moisture to your hair. It gives your hair the needed strength and lustre to make your hair grow faster and healthier.

How to Apply the Natural Oils

Those were just some of the amazing natural oils that help with hair growth. Now you need to know how to apply it correctly to get the  best results. The steps are quite simple and they work for almost any natural oil.

 

Step 1: Warm the oil

Natural oils are more effective when they are warm. All you have to do is pour a dollop of oil in your palm and rub your hands together to warm the oil.

 

Step #2: Massage your scalp with the oil

The target is your scalp. That’s where the growth happens. Use your finger tips to massage the oil in, then spread the excess oil on your hair, most especially the tips. The tips of your hair are the driest so you’ll need to make sure it gets some oil to keep it moist.

 

Step #3: Wrap your hair with a warm towel

This will give the oil time to penetrate into the hair follicles and deep condition your hair. You can leave your hair covered for 15-20 minutes or even overnight to give you maximum results.

 

Step #4: Wash thoroughly

Wash out all the oil from your hair using warm water and your favourite shampoo. Once well washed, air dry your hair or pat with a towel.
