The insecurities of women about their bodies are an age-old issue, but they seem to have garner steam in the passed few years. While us women were pondering whether to skip the carbs, a brainy bunch decided to solve the issue for us so we could have our bread and eat it too! Enter- oversized clothing. Exaggerated shoulders, colossal hips and extra-long sleeves all became trendy this year and the result of extra volume was smaller (looking) women.

A style may have looked a bit far-fetched on Lady Gaga a few years ago, has finally trickled down to us mere-mortals. Tops, jackets, shorts, hats, sunglasses, handbags and even scarves have been put on steroids this season depending on the part of body you wish to flatter.

But after trying on a men’s t-shirt (which I fell in love with), I realised that oversized clothing can be extremely flattering as well as sexy. Browse through some of my favourite oversized looks!
