DENIM DIARY: IT'S ALL BAGGY BABY

Gone are the days oversized denim was confined to the category of ‘boyfriend’ jeans or the Mom cut. I’m neither male nor a Mom so, what now?

5 Ways to Wear Your Oversized Cut Jeans

ONE

First rule, oversized doesn’t mean unflattering. You’re better off in comfy sitting position than holding your breath in three-sizes-to-small jeans. To help with the silhouette, wear more of a cropped top or singlet to show off some more skin in that department.

TWO

It’s a cross-seasonal all-rounder look…wear slides, sandals or go bare feet rather than adding more chunkiness to the situation. If you’re like Sophia and choose biker boots for all occasions, role up the bottom hem so you can actually see what’s going on down there.

THREE

Belt It- a large sparkle number or vintage gold buckle as seen on Bella Hadid just about every time she steps outside. Make it a feature of the outfit, and make it tight. The more fitted the waistline is the more flattering the oversized legs will look.

FOUR

Add something special- whether its patches or pins, or buying designer-denim with a logo smeared across the crutch. *Note my Vetements had to be swapped twice before nailing the size. It takes time.

FIVE

Back to my first point, if you are stealing your Boyfriend’s jeans, go the whole way and have them tailored to your body. All it takes is some adjusting at the waist and legs and you’re set.
