The Rise Of The Oversized Trend

November 17, 2015

Oversized street style

Pants, sweaters, jewelry, scarves, dresses, name it, everything is now available in oversized versions. This trend looks like it's picking up strength every year and I personally love the idea of comfortable clothes, however, we must be careful in how this trend is worn, because if it's overdone, it can look awkward. An easy way to sport this trend is by contrasting the oversized pieces with a slimline structure; that way we can create a stylish pairing. 
In today's look, besides combining oversized (sweater, scarf and earrings) pieces with slim ones (pants, shoes), I also wanted to have playing with textures and colors. And, as I did in another post, a great way to elevate oversized sweaters is to pair them with slick bottoms. These Jacquard skinny cropped pants seemed to be the right company for my oversized sweater as were my suede stiletto pumps.  The scarf was the final touch that glued all of the pieces together. 

Pantalones, suéteres, joyas, bufandas, vestidos, zapatos, etc...todas las prendas de la moda están disponibles en versiones maxi. Esta tendencia parece que está cogiendo fuerza cada año y mi personalmente me encanta la idea de ropa cómoda, sin embargo, hay que tener cuidado en cómo se usa esta tendencia, porque si nos pasa la mano, nos podemos ver ridículas. Una manera fácil de lucir esta tendencia es contrastándola con atuendos de un corte mas ajustado; de esta manera podemos crear una combinación con estilo.
En mi mudada de hoy, además de combinar piezas extra grandes (suéter, bufanda y argollas)  con atuendos mas ajustados (pantalones, zapatos), yo también quise jugar con texturas y colores. Y, como lo hice en otra entrada, una manera simple de hacer ver los suéteres extra grande mas interesante, es acompañándolos con pantalones of faldas hechas con materiales divertidos. Estos pantalones de tela jacquard parecieron ser la compañía mas adecuada para mi suéter y al igual fueron mis tacones de gamuza.  La bufanda, por supuesto fue el toque final que unió todas las piezas.

  1. What a wonderful post! You look absolutely awesome! And I love the fact that you used the STOP sign as your prop! It worked so well with the outfit. You're right about doing oversized correctly. If you overdo it, it looks sloppy. You really do have to be careful and check it front and back in the mirror before deciding you're done styling a look.

    1. Thanks Judi! We're always looking for different ideas how and where to shoot. I'm glad you liked this look and you said if we overdo the trend can look sloppy and also we should take in consideration our height, because too many oversized pieces at once can easily swallow a petite frame and that is not an attractive look.
