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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
