In the past, I’ve usually stuck to the rule of having at least one piece of form fitting clothes on me. Either I’ll pair oversized tops with legging-ish pants, or I’ll tuck in form fitting tops into palazzo pants/ full skirts. One way or the other, the final outfit will include some kind of defined waist.
But sometimes you’re just in the mood for loose over-sized clothing. I decided to break the mold this time by pairing a pleated palazzo pant with an untucked white blouse. Being a 4’11’ shorty pants one thing that for sure has to go with an oversized-everything outfit (for me anyway) is a pair of high heels.
I gotta say I’m loving the effect and there’s something that feels high fashion about it. Defined waist, you’re so 2000-and-late!
I found the perfect accessory pairing for this oversized outfit while on an impromptu shopping trip a few weeks back. Jess and I, along with a couple of buddies, decided to window shop in SoHo to walk off the brunch food and drinks we had. I originally had no intentions of making any purchases. Plus we were also visiting stores that would make my wallet cry (sorry AllSaints, love you but your stuff are so expensive). That’s when we stumbled upon The Market NYC, which is essentially a micro mall that features local artists and designers. Many of the designers interested me, but one in particular really caught my eye: Min & Mon. They make bags with super duper cute designs, vibrant colors, and unique textures. To top it off, the prices were quite affordable, especially compared to heartburn inducing prices of other places we’ve seen earlier. I knew I couldn’t leave the store without getting a bag.
