To be honest, I live for my figure hugging clothes but there are days when you just want to wear loose, oversized clothes. The freedom you feel, the comfort, and the cool breeze flowing through your body – is just divine! It was one of those lazy days when I didn’t want to put any effort into dressing up at all and yet be as comfortable as I could. Moreover, it was a casual outing that involved a lot of walking. I just needed to be comfy and slay without sacrificing style. Do you think I pulled that off?
Pulling off oversized clothes is however tricky and If you are one of those people that have probably convinced yourself that oversized clothes are not for you – not because you don’t like them, but because they just don’t, can’t, and will never flatter your body. Well, you’re wrong. When it comes to fashion, you’re free to break the rules and not follow the trend – Just do you! The fashion rule says don’t wear oversized top on an oversized bottom but I broke the damn rule because I felt it will look good on me. Watcha say?
For me, comfort is the most important factor to keep in mind. If I feel comfortable in it, I wear it and you should also. Today, wearing oversized trend has become a favourite in street style and its quiet understandable if you’re concerned about achieving a chic and fab look. So, if you’ve been dying to wear that chunky shirt or palazzo pants but have no idea where to start, here are tips on nailing this look.
#1 Balance out proportions
Even though I was daring enough to break this rule, the first rule of wearing oversized clothes is to create a balance. In other words, if you’re wearing an oversized shirt, wearing it with a slim fit trouser is going to balance out the look and vice versa.
#2 Show a little bit of skin
For my outfit, I choose a cold shoulder top which I absolutely love. Off shoulders are very flattering. So showing a little bit of skin creates a distraction from the oversized outfit to your body.
#4 Add contrast and accessories
Play with the contrasts by adding a casual, oversized top to a delicate maxi skirt, wide leg pants or palazzo. You can elevate the look by adding a fancy necklace or a bright lip (or both!) and you’re set to go. I was going to add wine coloured chokers to my outfit but I just couldn’t find it.
#5 Clinch it in
Give the oversized top by clinching it in at the waist. Pick a wider belt, rather than a skinny style, especially if you’re wearing a thick material.
Location: Dubai City Walk
The Dubai city walk is one of the many awesome places you should visit when you’re in Dubai. It is a reminiscent of European-style streets. You could imagine my excitement when I saw the red telephone booth… and trust me to take one too many pictures, with the way the passers by were looking at me I’m pretty sure they were saying who’s this bush girl. O well, I couldn’t be bothered because It’s not everyday you see a red photo booth when you’re not in Europe. The city walk is lined designer stores and restaurants – if you’re a foodie, you should definitely visit.
