It's been a busy week for sure... (pause)
But anyhow, I have this idea to share with you all. It's about how to make your own oversized collection.
Just last weekend, I've bought this basic tees from Zara. It supposed to be body-fit tees with long sleeve and tight halter neck. But, I know I'll look very friggin' thin if I wear that tees without any outer. So instead of buying Small size, I bought the Large size! Yes. And it turned out just like on the photos above.. :)) Not bad, eh?
What I've been trying to share is, you could always make your own 'oversized (top) collection' out of the available collection out there on the store. I think you guys would probably know that. But, in case you haven't, here are few things *I think* you supposed to consider in buying over size clothes (tops):
- The type of fabric: Don't ever buy an over size clothes with thick and stiff cotton fabric. Thick fabric makes you look like you're borrowing someone else's clothes. Thus, choose more elastic and rather thin fabric. For thick clothes, make sure it's heavy. That way it will loose on your body perfectly.
- The shoulder line: It's better to choose clothes without pads line. That way, no one can tell you're actually wearing over size. But as most clothes has sewing lines on the pads, make sure it falls down perfectly on your lower shoulder (ie. you can see it on my previous post outfit). :)
- The size: Pick the size twice (or more) of your actual size. If you use size S, then go for an L or even XL (if it's still looks decent on you), ect.
- How to: To have chic looks with your over size clothes, just roll the sleeves (short or long) up until it feels tight enough (mostly around elbows). For short sleeves, just roll it a bit so that it looks tighter. Don't overdo it, or else you'll look like a thug. :p
ps: I'll catch up on visiting those who have commented tomorrow. Promise. :)
Until next post, toodle-doodles!
