Style Candy – The bigger the better

A huge (no pun intended) trend this season and next is the oversized tee and oversized shirt look. It’s a trend I adore, but I have to admit it’s not an easy one for all body types and shapes to pull off. If you’re short you run the risk of looking swamped, and if you’re curvy you run the risk of looking curvier.

Oversized tees should be worn slouchy with a rock edge, falling off one shoulder, and again with leggings or skinny jeans. Try to find sheer, sexy fabrics that have a great drape.

Most importantly you want to make sure there are all the right proportions in your outfit – for example a large outsized white shirt with slim legs and a tiny waist.This look combines masculine with feminine in something slouchy, edgy and seriously comfortable. It’s definitely a look to love!oversized-tee-asos
