The Over- Sized for the Super- Cool

"The Rise of the Over-Size"

So have any of you fashion fanatics read this months vogue? If you have then you will already be writing yourself a shopping list for A/W key trends and pieces. And if you haven't then here is a guide to my favourite trend for next season, Over- Sized.

You may have already noticed the increase in boyfriend coats and blazers in high street chains such as topshop and zara, this is because the catwalks have been flooded with over-sized items. So throw away your shoulder pads and tight fitted jackets (or put them in the loft for now) and witness the super cool, slouched shouldered, loose fitted new trend that has the fashion elite over-excited


The Key Pieces

This jacket by Simone Rocha is a perfect way to do over sized easy, with some low heeled loafers and cute white ankle socks, this outfit could go from catwalk to street style.

Over size outer layers are much easier to style than over sized clothing as skinny girls often look drowned and curvy girls look frumpy. This ensemble by Chloe is a good starting point, use lighter colours so you don't look like the clothes are wearing you and elasticated waist lines provide a good break in the fabric.


Obviously this trend doesnt lend its self to excessive amounts of jewellery or lavish high heels, this is a casual look for the most part. However! Do not go over size crazy! One or too piece per outfit only! Enjoy.
