When it comes to buying new wares, getting the right fit is one of the trickiest things to get right – especially when you’re ordering online. A good style hack, therefore, is to opt for oversized everything as your M.O. It’s a literal big mood.
It speaks to the idea of the silhouette which in recent years has expanded to XXL proportions. The last few years has even seen footwear become oversized with sneakers such as the Balenciaga Triple S and Martine Rose x Nike Air Monarch IV all cater to the adage that bigger, is in fact better.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best oversized pieces to ride the big ’fit wave.
An oversized tee is the easiest way to start a transition into oversized fits. Below we’ve found a classic trefoil logo box tee from adidas, a simple-but-stylish option from Jil Sander, and for an investment piece, a multi-pattern short-sleeve shirt from Gucci featuring the brand’s signature exotic animals motifs.
Oversized outerwear is a simple way to take care of winter wardrobe woes. Below we’ve rounded up familiar styles including ski-wear from Ottolinger, as well as bombers, shearling, and denim jackets cut to extra large proportions.
Following the recession of skinny jeans from the style zeitgeist, the world of pants has been getting bigger and bigger. In the selection below there’s a pair of extra roomy cargo pants from South Korean label ADER Error, a turned-up light-wash denim option from Botter, high-waisted pants from Marni to do oversized style in the office, and workwear style pants from Angus Chiang with loops and belts for a disruptive silhouette.
Bags & Accessories
2019 could have been defined by the tiny sunglasses and tiny bags that kept popping up on the street style circuit. However, if you’re going big with the fit, you can also go big with the accessories, such as romantic pink lenses from Gucci and a XL pillow tote bag from Our Legacy.
