This weekend I made a tour of my favorite local boutiques scoping out new spring merchandise and I began to notice an interesting, often unseen in fashion, trend that “big is in”. Every boutique had a wide selection of loose, silky, baggy shirts in a variety of styles, all extra big. For the most part fashion has always followed the “thin is in” style with clothes designed to show off svelte bodies but it seems now designers have decided to try a bigger, looser look.
I am not sure what I really think about this, on one hand many of the styles will fit and appeal to a wider variety of body styles but on the other if you have worked hard to look slim they certainly won’t do your figure any favors. I think when worn correctly they can look cute as long as you pair slim pants on bottom. You also don’t have to wear the shirts quite as big as the designers intend, try wearing them in a size or two smaller than you normally wear. I am not sure this trend will last long, so I would only invest in one loose, silky, dressy blouse and stick with exploring the trend with loose t-shirts/dresses by Alexander Wang, Vince and Michael Stars that you can easily pair with leggings for a comfy stylish look.
What do you think? Do you like the “big is in” trend?
