I thought I would pop by to share my outfit today! I have been feeling this specific outfit for the last week or so and haven probably worn it 3-4 times already. It is awfully difficult to do oversized 'right', especially if you don't have a body that's straight up and down, or larger than an AU 4-6 (god forbid). However I am pretty sure that I have narrowed down the elements that make it 'work':
The top is a heavier weighted material
The top is a v neck. V neck or mock necks are the key to oversized tops. Otherwise it can look more like you've bought a top multiple sizes too big, rather than it looking like a more tailored oversized fit.
The top and bottoms are both cropped above the wrist and ankle. Love me a sexy, sexy ankle.
The top flares out at the bottom, giving it a boxy look.
The bottoms sinch in pretty tight at the waist, giving the whole look a more flattering shape.
Another elements of the outfit that I like:
It looks like a set!
I am a hoe for sets. But unfortunately it's not the easiest feat to find a set that both top and bottom are shaped really well (unless you start to enter the $150+ per piece market). Both pieces are similar 'hues' of natural - different, but cohesive. Which kind of gives off the illusion of a really great set.
TIP: note a few classic/timeless/flattering hues that you love and always keep a look out for pieces that fit the description. I find that you can't always find what you're looking for at once. So what I tend to do is usually keep an eye out throughout the following seasons to pick up pieces such as tailored shorts, blazers, blouses, jumpers and wide leg pants from a range of my favourite brands. Then essentially you end up with this amazing collection of pieces that you can match with and make look like sets throughout the following seasons!
