While I am tiny in size, I can't help but enjoy the feeling of oversized clothing. Constantly getting the comments of "Why don't you wear those pretty little shift dresses?"
Well maybe it's because I don't want to look like the atypical girl or straight out of the Beverly Hills Housewives.
While I can't necessarily get the next size up in pants(I would not like walking around with my pants around my ankles), I can do that in tops.
Who wouldn't enjoy a nice, big, cozy sweater paired with a pair of Rag and Bone jeans and some ankle boots? (Pretty much my daily uniform)
All of this must go hand in hand with my preferred men's styling of clothing so let's take it a step further.
Why not try the men's section? If you're hesitant on this idea, try a Uniqlo or American Apparel for men's sizes before you start spending a bunch of money on a what if.
I've come up with a few other reasons why you should try this.
1. You can breath. While this one seems the least associate with fashion and style, it most certainly is one that could get overlooked. Take a mini vacation from being crammed into either your daily work uniform or perhaps your evening wear.
2. Going against the grain. If the majority of people aren't do this, why not try it? Go against the norm and start a trend yourself.
3. If you accidentally shrink your shirt, it may actually come out normal size. This has actually happened to me and while it was unsalvageable(darn wool) it didn't come out the size for a 2 year old, perhaps it was more of a 7 year old.
Hopefully these reasons are good enough to get you on the same bender as myself.
Post some comments and let me know what you've bought!
