Though body con and fitted ensembles have been the major trend for the past few seasons, the fashion world replaced them with directional looks that play with volume and proportion. Billowy and floor-length trousers may look shabby and slouchy, but styling them with best pieces is the key to looking polished and stylish. If you’re a fan of their skinny-legged counterparts, keep on reading for our polished ways of wearing billowy, looser, and baggy trousers.
- With casual and simple tops
Be careful wearing billowy trousers if you have that petite frame as it may just swamp your figure making you look shorter and heavier than you are. For a better style, opt for a high-waist version so the loose and voluminous fit will be more proportion on you. Since these looser trouser styles are too loud, balance them with simple and casual tops like a basic tee, a plain-colored crop top, a graphic tank top, bandeau top, and such letting your trousers make a statement for your casual outfit.
- With chic fitted tops
If you’re not a fan of bandeau tops and crop tops, you may opt for form-fitting tops that define your waistline without exposing your bare midriff. Think of an asymmetrical top may draw the eye to the natural waist, a fitted lace top draws interest, or even a knitted sweater provides just enough “break” in the silhouette to balance a fuller, baggier trouser leg. A neatly tucked button down shirt or a belted voluminous top will also look polished and chic.
- With voluminous top
Traditionally, fashion rule says if you are wearing a baggier, more voluminous skirt or trouser, you should ultimately pair it with a smaller, more form-fitting top. Though this advice still holds merit, the modern fashion influences us to pair voluminous with voluminous, or oversized with oversized. When doing this trick, always have a great definition whether on your pants or top piece, or else, your waist will look as wide as your hips.
- Monochromatic Style
To lessen the focus on your billowy trousers, you may opt for the same shade of your bottom and top crating an illusion of a dress or jumpsuit. This way, your outfit will look more coordinated and polished compared to wearing different blocks of color. Just polish your looks with sophisticated and chic accessories like an elegant clutch, sophisticated necklace, chic sunglasses, or even feminine shoes that will add some polish feel to your outfit.
- With stylish jackets, coats, and blazers
Any casual or sporty attire can be dressed up instantly by topping a classic trench coat, or chic blazer on them. If you don’t feel confident of wearing them, think of wool coats, elegant pea coats, classic chesterfield coats, trench coats, leather jackets, and even structured blazers to add some polish to your looks. We often see many celebrities and fashion bloggers topping their avant-garde outfits with stylish outerwear to dress them up or dress them down.
- With creative layers
While designers are simply creating the illusion of a waistline with clever cuts, be creative too in yo layering. Though basic layering pieces are commonly cardigans, blazers, jackets, and coats, be more creative by wearing pieces that are not supposed to be worn together like a tube dress with a pair of palazzo pants, or a sweater with a blazer. If you’re not a fan of palazzo pants, culottes can be your alternative as its structural and billowing fabrications are equally fashionable with those trousers. Again, the polished and stylish outfit depends on your creation of a waistline. So, be creative and trendy on your street looks, and make a statement that turn heads.
