Now that it has been 10 years of skinny jeans and narrow styled pants we are in a state of wardrobe fatigue– it is finally time for a change! The Fall and Resort Collections are showing lots of volume!! Yeah –a reason to shop—a new look! The key to successfully wearing volume is understanding how it relates to the body.
Leandra Medine, the founder of the Man Repeller website is a devotee of the oversize look. She looks for voluminous clothes that are “thoughtful and that subversively celebrate a woman’s body. Ms. Medine likes to pair her super -wide legged pants with a close-fitting T-shirt and button-down shirts. So basically, it all depends on balance and how you style the pieces.
The trend is also spilling over into evening wear —designers are showing one -shoulder tops, ruffles and tiers. The style went from lean and narrow to looks that are more about movement. The look is easy, unforced and comfortable.
What’s your style slim and narrow or loose and easy??
