When it comes to shopping, girls and guys alike always seem to be looking for the right fit. We want things to be tight and fitted in all the right places and loose and forgiving in all the others. But sometimes, the search for the perfect fit can be exhausting. Let’s face it, some people have the time and money to have all of their garments taken in, but those people are not college students. So what’s the alternative you ask? Oversize it!
This Fashionista shows a cute, quirky way to rock the oversized trend. She starts her look with a sheer, polka-dot patterned shirt. The shirt is very large for her petite frame, so she wears it messily cuffed and perfectly slouchy. She pairs the top with some aqua shorts. She accessorizes with a crow skull pendant and some stacked beaded bracelets. She completes her ensemble with some aviator sunnies and a pair of nude flats.
If you’d like to replicate this Fashionista’s look, shop for the perfect oversized shirt. You can get great sheer tops like this Fashionista’s at American Apparel, but I always like the hunt of thrifting. Check out your local Goodwill or Salvation Army for some unique men’s shirts. In the summer months you can pair oversized tops with shorts and skirts. Easily transition this look into the cooler months by pairing your top with leggings or skinny jeans, boots and a cardigan.
Big, baggy clothes look especially great on petite girls, but it is a look that can be worn by anyone. Oversized tops, if worn correctly, can emphasize how small you are rather than make you look larger.
So, if you’re shopping and you can’t find the perfect fit – oversize it.
