Bigger IS Better

Nope, I’m not trying to take on a new character and start being inappropriate. I am simply expressing a new fashion find: an over-sized button down shirt. I think this idea looks trendy and chic. I bought mine at H&M in size 12 (while I usually wear their size 4 or 6, depending on the model)!  

However, be careful not to go too big because that might make you look frumpy and disproportionate. Some of the things to consider when picking a shirt of this kind are:

First, focus on the length. It should be long enough to cover your bottom, but not too much longer. Otherwise, it will make your legs look shorter.

Second, look at the way it fits on your shoulders. Avoid shirts that are too wide at the shoulders and hang too far down your arms – it will make your upper body look heavy and disproportionate.

Third, make sure you have the right belt to cinch in the shirt at the waist. It’ll define your figure and make you look curvier in all the right places.

Forth, wear the right type of bottoms. Skinny pant or jeans look best with this style. However, you could try other options - you never know till you try it on.

And lastly, don’t be afraid to accessorize. If you want to look more modest, you could wear a little short necklace that would peek from underneath the shirt. For a bolder look, you could place a longer necklace or a chain over the collar to add some individuality.
