TREND ALERT: OVERSIZED FASHION IS BACK
HAVE YOUR HEARD THE NEWS? TAILORED AND FORM-FITTING IS ON ITS WAY OUT AND OVERSIZED AND BAGGY IS ON THE WAY IN! HOW DO WE HOP ON THE TREND?
Many people's first fear when it comes to oversized fashion trends begs the question: "How do I do it without looking frumpy or unflattering?" Believe it or not, this trend can be effortless, comfortable, and chic when done correctly.
Here are FOUR TIPS to help you look your best while tackling this new trend:
1. FOCUS ON CREATING A COHESIVE LOOK. The secret to looking chic and attractive in clothes that aren't your size is to create an intentional look that considers your shoes, jewelry, accessories, as well as hair and makeup. When all of these things have the same style, you'll look great!
2. "TIGHT ON TOP, LOOSE ON BOTTOM". The easiest way to create a great look while trying the oversize trend is not to overdo it. Try going oversized only on one part of your body at a time. If you're wearing flowy linen pants as your bottoms, try a more tailored and structured top.
3. "LOOSE ON TOP, TIGHT ON BOTTOM". This goes along with the last tip. Balance is key. If you're wearing an oversized denim jacket, try pairing it with some more skinny or straight leg black denim jeans.
4. KEEP IT SIMPLE WITH NEUTRALS. Black, grey, whites, tans, and other earthy tones help make your oversized looks feel effortless yet trendy and chic.
Choosing the pieces and perfect colors for your outfits can instantly improve your look. If you pull together the perfect combination, you'll easily dress better, look great and feel your best.
