If you’re going to do it big, do it right. Trying to achieve the oversized trend can go very wrong very fast. So here’s a few tips to keep in mind when styling this look.
Boost your height – If you don’t want your oversized piece to make it look like you’re drowning in it, creating height is a must. Wear heels and choose a pair of pants that make your legs look longer. Doing this will cancel out the overwhelming vibe of the oversized piece and make your silhouette look more proportioned.
One at a time – As with any statement piece you should never pile it on, that will certainly look disastrous. Limit your oversized item to one at a time and nothing more. This will help you avoid getting a really bulky silhouette. Don’t wear that oversized sweater with an oversized coat on top. Doing so will overwhelm your frame.
Belts are your friend – if you’re worried that the oversized sweater you have will make you look too big and shapeless, cinching it around the waist with a belt can really help heaps. Cinching oversized tops will give it a better shape and will also help create the illusion of a shapely silhouette.
Keep the rest fitted and slim – This falls in line with balance and proportion. If you’re wearing an oversized sweater or coat, stay away from baggy jeans and go for leggings or skinny cut pants instead.
Find balance – the biggest key to successfully pulling off oversized clothes is to keep your look balanced. Balance in your outfit can be achieved in many ways. Mixing and matching the right pieces to achieve a balanced silhouette is important if you want to look stylish instead of sloppy.
