In one of my earlier Fashion Week blogs, I picked up on the oversized trend coming back and it seems that this will be a big statement with it carrying over to Paris Fashion Week.
Dries Van Noten showed their Ready-To-Wear collection today, consisting of contrasting prints, fur and some oversized numbers. Here are some of my favourite looks straight from the catwalk. Pictures courtesy of our beloved Vogue.com
Monochrome jumper which appears baggy on arms and body, cuffs in at the neck and wrists. This is quite a warm, wearable look. The skirt looks to be leather, another trend that seems to be on a lot of catwalks for next season.
This is more of an understated, oversized look. The sleeves are fairly baggy against the models arm, perfect for someone who isn't very comfortable with their arms. I love the slight hint of colour here with the camel ankle boots.
Extremely similar to the first look, except the colours are different. I also think the styling for this is a lot better, the jumper flows nicely onto the skirt and from there down to the shoes. Again, another hint of colour brought by the shoes.
An easy oversized piece would be palazzo pants. I love the dirty orange colour, it contrasts nicely with the busy print which looks to have a fur lining - brilliant for keeping warm!
So those are the looks I liked, but what do you think of this oversized trend? Like it or loathe it? It's definitely more extreme to the last time we went oversized. I for one, am looking forward to being able to bundle a few layers on underneath a baggy garment.
Also, there seems to be an heir of seventies about the catwalks for next season, the extreme prints, the palazzo pants taking over from the flares - what do you guys recon? Should I invest in an afro wig?
