Cold Shoulders & Culottes












cardi/jewelry-Le Tote, tunic-Anthropologie(similar here), culottes-Everlane, flats-Dr. Scholls

Let's talk about fit, silhouette, proportion, and shapes, shall we? These culottes are technically too "big" for me. They are a size & a half up from what I'm currently wearing, as is this tunic. So both top and bottom play into the oversized trend, which creates a rectangular shape. Now, you may think a rectangular silhouette wouldn't be all that flattering, HUHEVAH since the tunic is V-necked, showing off some skin, and this cardi has shoulder cutouts, showing a bit more skin the overall effect plays into the shapes and angles that may not be "flattering" in the typical sense, but is fashionably satisfying.  There is balance, a sense of structure, and the sliver-edged pleats of the tunic give a vertical, lengthening feel to the proportion as well.

So much geometry for an outfit, amiright?! 😏 Basically, if you're going to wear oversized/baggy pieces, then you need so show some skin, and top things off with a somewhat structured piece so as not to appear as if you're being swallowed up by your clothes. At least, that's what works for me!
