Style Guide: 7 Oversized Looks That Will Inspire Your Wardrobe
The oversized clothing trend has made its rounds throughout fashion history, redefining gender bias and growing the acceptability of what it means to wear baggy clothing in the 21st century.
As a petite female who stands at only 5"1, it has been very hard for me to indulge in this fashion trend.
I felt like wearing anything oversized was doing my petite figure an injustice and simply was just not flattering at all (not like I have curves to show off anyways.)
Something about it has always reminded me of the dreaded hand-me-down phase I experienced during my early teen years.
Looking back at it, it seems like it was a really good excuse for my mom to not have to take me shopping because I had an older sister who's clothes could be reworn.
Growing up in the south (Atlanta,Ga) I was first introduced to the oversized fashion trend in the early 2000's. If you're not familiar with this, this was a time when 3x white tee's, baggy jeans, and oversized accessories played a huge role in black culture and the southern hip-hop aesthetic. If you weren't rocking this trend at the time, let's just say you were completely out of the loop.
As that trend slowly began to fade away and my fashion maturity started blossoming (granted I was only 6 around this time) I started having a better appreciation for what fashion was and how to use it to express myself.
Fast forward to now, I've started really taking the time to study people who I feel have been able to effortlessly pull off this style.
This trend can be very challenging to master because it is so easy to drown and get lost behind your clothing but don't let that scare you away from trying, you're to dope to run away from a little challenge!
Here are a few of my fav oversized fashion looks that I believe were executed flawlessly.
