Oversized Style Clothing for Women. If runways have taught us anything, it’s that baggy, oversized clothing can look unbelievably cool… when done right, that is. For most of us, runway fashion isn’t a feasible or practical option.
But we can still take inspiration from the countless designers who make the runway their playground and carve the way for us lesser fashionistas who are just trying to look cute in our day-to-day lives. In today’s article, we are going to be diving into the trend that is baggy clothing and showing you how you can pull it off and make it work for you… in a way that is feasible and practical. Without further ado, let’s get started.
How to Style Oversized Clothes
Before we get into our roundup of outfits, let’s take a look at our top tips for wearing oversized clothing:
- Remember that baggy does not equal sloppy. It is possible to wear a baggy sweater or oversized coat and still look very chic. Our outfits should give you a good idea of how to do this!
- Keep this rule of thumb in mind: if you are wearing baggy up top (shirts, jackets, sweaters, etc.) then keep the rest of your outfit quite fitted and/or structured. If you are wearing baggy on the bottom (pants, trousers, joggers, etc.) then the same applies in reverse.
- If you are wearing an oversized tee or sweater, consider tucking a part of the hem into your pants. This is a super simple way to bring a little more visual structure to your overall appearance.
- If you are new to oversized clothing, start by incorporating baggy loungewear looks. Not only is baggy loungewear the most comfortable thing you will probably ever experience while on this planet, but it’s a lowkey, easy way to do some experimenting and finding out what you can get away with when it comes to your body and personal style.
Now let’s look at some outfits!
