What’s the one thing you always keep in mind while trying on new clothes? A few years ago I had a friend whose mom used to work in the fashion industry. She was always my go-to person to ask about trends and somehow I really trusted her opinion. The one piece of advice I got from her that stayed with me ever since was to not wear overly fitting clothes. Somehow they tend to create a very unnatural posture, restrict movement and only look great on a few lucky ladies:).
So, my rule is that whenever I’m trying a new tee, a sweater, a shirt, a dress or a blouse, I always get two sizes to try on: mine and a size bigger. I usually go with the size bigger as I adore the slouchyness , the movement the fabric creates and the ability to add a dash of sprezzatura to my everyday look. Above are a few of my favourite squeeze-free zone outfit ideas.
Darlings, would you wear any of those looks above? What’s your take on fashion: close-fitted or a bit looser? xo
P.S: Style tweaks: rolled-up pants.
P.P.S: How about some sassy dotts?
