Wear it without drowning in it

By ELLE team  July 20th, 2017

Even if you have Kendall Jenner’s whittled-down waist and Gigi Hadid’s towering frame, attempting to slip into oversized clothing could seem like a daunting task. You may find yourself plagued with questions from “Will l look like I have gained weight?” to “Where did my waist go?” Celebrity stylist Allia al Rufai offers some words of encouragement: “It’s about how well you know your body before you invest in it. It will suit every body type as long as it is worn right”

So instead of being jealous of how easily Sonam Kapoor, Gigi Hadid and gang pull off this tricky trend, immerse yourself in our fashion cheat sheet.  

Beginner’s guide to nailing the oversized trend

Gigi Hadid

Gigi Hadid is Allia's current favourite for the way she styles oversized coats and jackets with sheer layers underneath.

"Rather than accessorising, try playing with proportions. If you choose to wear baggy pants, wear a tighter top or vice versa. This will help balance the look and also accentuate your figure" says Allia.

Sonam Kapoor

Oversized jumpsuits or playsuits are fun, comfy and trendy at the same time. Rufai suggests investing in one. 


Kim Kardashian

Reality television star Kim Kardashian makes headlines with her fashion choices, like this Yeezy oversized sweatshirt worn with heels. "Wear strappy heels with such oversized smocked dresses for a great look without that old waist belt", suggests Rufai.

"There is no ideal accessory you can carry for a perfect look, but trying to keep it minimal will always help," advises Allia.
