One of the most frequently asked questions by our dear customers on our platform is: how can I mix oversized pieces with my regular pieces? It can indeed be a bit tricky. But fear not, we’re here to tell you how to become absolutely pro in that department. A look combining loose and fitted garments can really flatter your figure and elevate your style. A rolled sleeve, an unbuttoned button, a well-balanced boot: the devil is in the details!

Need proof? Let's put it to the test: put on a loose white shirt in front of the mirror and pair it with your favourite jeans. If you don't have one in your wardrobe, it could also be your boyfriend's or your brother's shirt! Looks kinda boring, right? Now casually tuck the front of it into your jeans, roll up the sleeves 2 or 3 turns and unbutton one an extra button. HERE! This is style! Our very kind stylists share other useful tips, right below.

 

OVERSIZED WHITE SHIRT

The loose shirt is one of those items that never goes out of style and that is suitable for all ages. A must, year after year! The 2010 version had a belt at the waist that gave it a tunic look. Although this option is likely to come back soon enough – fashion is a circle! - , the new decade is revamping it by assuming its bulk.

HACKS

1. Tuck the front of your shirt into the front of the pants.

2. Unbutton the first 3 buttons from the top. Too much neckline? Add an underwear tank top underneath.

3. Roll the sleeves under the elbows.

GAUCHO

Very well-known in the world of fashion, the gaucho is a wide pants cut somewhere between the knee and the ankle. It is ideal for balancing the V-silhouette or for structuring the waist of H, I, and O silhouettes. Its bold look is perfect for adding style to your weekend or work outfits.

HACKS

1. Leggings coordinate perfectly with a loose sweater. To avoid the shortening effect, choose a narrow rider-style boot in the same shade as your leggings.

2. Choose vibrant colors for your sweaters! In addition to brightening your face, these will draw the eye up to your upper body. Perfect for A, X, H, 8 and I figures.

3. Assume the total oversized look by pairing it with a pleated midi skirt or wide-leg pants.

WIDE-LEGGED PANTS

Checked or neutral, wide-legged pants are popular this season. Neither palazzo nor straight, the wide-legged pants are comfortable and fluid at the thigh and follow the same width throughout the leg. We love it for its "boyish" inspiration, which pairs perfectly with a blouse or a fitted sweater.

HACKS

1. Shoe-wise, the loafer is really ideal to complete this look. If you want a small heel, opt for a block heel ankle boot.

2. For a perfect current effect, the pants must be LONG! Low to the ground!

3. For a flawless fit, go for a thick and heavy fabric. The result will be uber-elegant!

OVERSIZED JACKET

The jacket has a thousand plus, both in terms of silhouette-enhancing and practicality. With a loose jacket, you can add an undeniable touch of style to any look! For a very trendy outfit, wear it buttoned up with nothing underneath. Yes, you read that right! If you don’t like this option, go for a simple, plain top like a t-shirt or a turtleneck tucked inside the pants. This last detail is super important to balance the silhouette!

HACKS

2. When it comes to pants, it's all or nothing! Either you own the matching XXL pants or you go with a very narrow cut. Up to you!

3. To highlight or define your size, add a belt over your jacket!
