As seen on the FASHION Magazine Style Panel:

I’m a recent convert to the world of oversized clothing.  Since I’m technically top heavy, I’d always assumed that it just wasn’t the look for me. But, I’ve recently learned that the beauty of oversized pieces is that they’re full of styling possibilities! Using the power of accessorizing, I try to break up this often boxy silhouette with a long necklace, scarf, or belt.  This magically centres the outfit and counters any perceived added width.  To complete this cozy autumn look, all you need is a pair of skinny denim for balanced proportions, and a large cup of hot chocolate for warmth and deliciousness!
And don't forget to check out how the other bloggers rocked the boxy look!

  4. I have the same problem. I love how oversize clothes look I just don't think it would look good on me because I'm top heavy too. I guess you just proved me wrong because you look great and we have about the same body shape.

  18. You look amazing, as always! I love the look and that scarf is too freakin' cute! I love how big & full it is!

  19. I'm totally with you, Alicia. I love the oversized look, but I didn't think it was for me for the longest time. I really think it's one of those trends that can work for anyone so long as it's done right - and you're definitely doing it right.

  20. You wanna hear something creepy? I saved that first pic to my inspo folder on my desktop. Don't you think it's kinda weird since we're friends? I don't know why, I feel like it is, but I'm just gonna go with it because I love this look so much. Those loafers are just insane - love them so much! Can't wait to see you later today!

  24. I think I'm still in the headspace where oversized makes top heavy me look pregnant... Or like an escapee from Munchkinland :D What is your secret? Aside from the scarf, which is gorgeous and a perfect colour combination with your burgundy tee. Absolutely love this look. Missing you, my gorgeous friend :) Skype date soon-ish?
