How To Style An Oversize Dress

Oversize dresses, frocks, or mumus have unquestionably taken over the fashion industry. The trend started out on fashion show runways or only being shot on the coolest-of-the-cool street style stars. But now it has morphed into a trend that not just the fashion girls are loving these days.

With the many iterations, from tent-like shapes, voluminous skirts, babydoll silhouettes and overly-puffy sleeves, evidence would suggest that this trend is without-a-doubt here for awhile. These dresses are easy to style, ridiculously comfortable and flattering for all shapes and sizes.

Many of you want to know how does one style them? Here are some ways:

Create definition: Cinch your waist with a belt to look shapely. Use a wide belt or one with a statement buckle, rather than a skinny belt, especially if the dress material is thick, like a knitted dress.

Play with layers: Layer a shirt dress over wide-legged pants, some leggings or a knee-length skirt. Undo the last few buttons to make the layered-look intentional.

Show some skin: This will help to offset the volume. Showing skin will prevent you from looking swallowed up by your dress. Choose an off-shoulder, boat neck or V neckline, or you can roll up the sleeves to highlight the slimmest part of your arm.

Accessorize: Wear your favorite statement accessories, bag and heels. Heeled boots or booties are a great option.

There are tons of ways to style oversized dresses. Just remember to keep the look as balanced as you can. See below how I styled my oversized dress.

Oversized Dress used as a Cardigan or jacket as my son would say, paired with a Zip Front Bodysuit and some of my favorite Brazilian Leggings. To the pull the look together I wore some floral open toe booties. Now to add a splash of chic I wore a pair of Cat Eye Sunglasses and my statement Cat Necklace.
