HOW TO WEAR: The Oversized Outerwear Trend

Oversized outerwear has been a streetwear staple all year long. Perhaps, its biggest advocate is Georgian fashion designer and street style genius Demna Gvasalia who has created a signature with his padded jackets and exaggerated silhouettes for Balenciaga and Vetements. The fashion crowd has certainly been following suit as London Fashion Week has been filled with style stars in oversized pieces–stars like Rihanna and Bella Hadid happen to also love the puffy silhouette.

As the cooler weather starts to kick in and travel plans to colder cities are being made, here are four ways to wear the oversized outerwear trend to stay chic in time for the holidays:

1. Daytime Chic

The ultimate fool-proof trick for a stylish, effortless look? It has got to be a simple white tee and jeans. Further embellish your daytime wear with heritage prints!

2. Double denim

Nothing makes an easy statement than putting similar textures into one outfit. Go double denim and select an inner piece such as a bright-colored turtleneck for a pop of color.

3. Cloaked In Warmth

Is the weather not cold enough for layering? Drape your outerwear over your shoulders for an added touch of texture to a transitional outfit.

4. No Grey Area

Stay true to the trusty New York City uniform by sticking to monochromatic shades of black and white for a cool, minimalist feel. Pick your best high ankle boots and wear it with a hoodie to channel an athleisure look.
