Embracing the Oversized Trend: A Guide to Effortless Style

In the world of streetwear, few trends have garnered as much attention and obsession as oversized clothing. From billowy, slouchy hoodies to boxy tees, oversized clothes have taken the fashion world by storm because of their unique ability to blend comfort and style. We at Brooklyn Cloth are embracing the oversized trend and sharing our guide to effortless style.

History of the Oversized Trend

The rise of oversized clothes surged during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fast-forward to today and you can still see oversized clothes being styled on social media.

Although the oversized trend has been making waves in the current fashion world, it's a trend that first gained traction in the 1980s and 1990s. Fueled by the rise of hip-hop culture and streetwear, it was worn by influential artists and legends like Run-D.M.C and Kurt Cobain. They helped popularize the oversized look by sporting baggy jeans with oversized hoodies.

During that era, a fit like that was a form of self expression and rebellion. Today, oversized clothes can be seen across the style spectrum, from hoodies to blazers. Yet mastering the art of wearing and styling oversized clothes without looking bulky can be a challenge. In this guide, we'll delve into the secrets of styling oversized pieces with confidence. We want you to find the perfect fit by mastering the art of layering, elevating your overall streetwear game.

Unlocking the Perfect Oversized Fit:

When it comes to oversized clothing, it's not a secret that it offers maximum comfort. Yet getting the perfect fit is key to avoid looking like you’re drowning in fabric. We want to look stylish, not sloppy. Here's how to achieve the ideal balance between comfort and style.

Proportion is Key:

When choosing oversized pieces, you want to focus on proportions. It is best to look for clothes that are designed to be big without overwhelming your body type. You can do so by balancing oversized tops with fitted bottoms. In the case of finding the perfect oversized hoodie – oversized sleeves or a longer hemline can add to the overall aesthetic without making you look bulky.

Master The Art of Layering:

Layering can help add depth and dimension to your oversized look. Don't be afraid to embrace different silhouettes to find what works best for your body type. What works for one person may not work for you. Your perfect oversized fit should be personalized.

You can start with a fitted base layer, such as a white crewneck tee or a tight fit long sleeve, and layer oversized pieces on top for added texture and volume. The trick is to make sure your base layers are peeking out from underneath your oversized sweatshirt. This will help elevate your outfit from basic to put together with thought. You can even layer an oversized shacket over a graphic tee for something more casual.

Mix and Match Textures.

Choose fabrics that have a soft drape, so the top you are wearing effortlessly hangs, creating the perfect slouchy silhouette. The key is to avoid adding bulk. Lightweight materials like cotton are perfect for achieving a relaxed, clean oversized look.

Experiment with tucking and rolling your oversized tops to create an interesting look to your oversized outfit. By tucking the front of an oversized shirt into mid-waisted trousers, you can turn it from a laid-back to put together. Even something as simple as rolling up the sleeves of an oversized hoodie can change the style perception you are creating with your fit.

Personalize to Make it Perfect:

If you find that a certain top is too oversized or doesn’t match with your body type, consider getting it tailored to suit your preferences. A few changes can make your oversized clothing piece one-of-a-kind and will help you achieve the perfect fit by elevating your overall look.
