How To Style Oversized Silhouettes With Perfection

From Rihanna's infamous, oversized Sweatshirt to the teddy coat obsession, the love for oversized is not going anywhere, anytime soon. However, styling them can sometimes be just as overwhelming. Pulling it off is difficult but only if you don’t know what suits you the best. Not to worry because we are here with a full-fledged guide only for you. Fashion is meant to be interpreted by everyone and we are here to help you through it!



An oversized jumper or anything else for that matter can easily overwhelm you. Now if you are a tall person, this might actually be flattering for you. However, if you are a petite body type you might need a little extra help from a belt. In case you don’t want to wear a belt, try a fanny pack. It gives the illusion of a belt and is a lot more functional.

Oversized Street Style Looks


Balancing any outfit is the most crucial part of styling your look. When it comes to an oversized silhouette, balance is the key. It can make or break your entire look. Layering on an oversized coat or jacket is not as effortless as it seems. Make sure that what you are wearing under the jacket is either bodycon, cropped or tucked in. What’s important here is that you do not let your waist line be lost, especially if you are not that tall. Once you know the trick, you can go as experimental as you want. If you are still not sure, a sure shot trick is to wear your jacket or coat over a mini skirt or a dress.

Knowing what works for your body is very essential. We all have a unique sense of style. If you don’t know yours, we suggest you do some experimenting before going ahead and buying every single trend out there. For example, for a pear shaped body, low waist bottoms are a must with an oversized silhouette. However, for a petite, pear shaped body the rule changes to high-waist bottoms because it is very important to create an illusion of longer legs. Similarly, there are thousands of rules that you will never be sure to follow unless you figure out your style as per your body type.
