Celebrities and designers around the world are tossing aside skin tight clothing and opting for oversized fashion pieces.Slouchy t-shirts, oversized sweaters and big jackets have been seen all over Hollywood and the runway. Designers like Jil Sanders, Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler have all shown oversized clothing at their runway shows this year. The reason this look is so popular is because of the way that the clothing hangs on the bodies frame, making this look a close cousin of the boho chic trend. The appeal of oversized clothing lies in its carefree and relaxed quality, making it versatile, as well as, chic.

For a casual look we suggest wearing an oversized t-shirt that is half tucked into a pair of printed denim jeans. This look is full of fun youthfulness and the fitted denim will offset the looseness of the shirt, which will help you avoid looking frumpy. If you’re looking for a more understated oversized look we suggest pairing a simple oversized cardigan with leggings and a boho chic over the shoulder bag. This look is effortless and perfect for fall; consider adding a belt to this look if you find that your waistline is getting lost in the oversized top.

Try The Trend Tips

Ready to try the oversized clothing trend, here are a few tips to help you avoid looking like a frumpy mess.

Don’t wear more than one oversized clothing item. There is a very fine line between looking unkempt and looking chic. Remember to wear fitted pieces underneath your oversized clothing and you’ll be rocking the look perfectly.

Try wearing an oversized cardigan over a fun romper or a flirty skirt. The oversized cardigan will balance the playfulness of the romper and add a cool grunge appeal.

Try to keep your oversized items in neutral tones; the oversize look tends to work best when the piece is in white, black, navy, cream or any other subtle hue.
