Oversized hats are great for giving you a fashion-forward look, especially if you’re not an accessory type of girl. Apart from being a summer must-have accessory that’s usually worn on the beach, oversized hats can be great for formal occasions too. However, be careful wearing oversized hats if you have a small face, instead, try to go for bigger ones but flatter you face shape. Wear them everywhere, even on the beach, because they are not pricey, and can really brighten up even the brightest day.

When wearing oversized accessories or jewelry, prefer to take one oversized piece and make it a statement piece, so wearing oversized earrings with a statement necklace won’t look great. When it comes to earrings, you have to choose wisely, because they are so close to your face. Whether you choose the bright ones, with feathers, or elegant and classy pair, big earrings will spice up any outfit, so you can get a casual hair-do. If you wish to wear two oversized pieces at a time, go for a pair of haute couture earrings but trade your statement necklace with a statement cuff like Kristina Bazan did.

Oversized Belt

If you wish to participate on the trend, be inspired with Miroslava Duma’s outfit wearing an oversized outfit with an oversized gold belt that balanced her looks as slim belts won’t work in a billowy outfit. Also, oversized belts are functional for taming and giving you some womanly curves in a stiff and structured outfits. Just feel free to adjust for the belt sizes so you’ll flatter your body type.

Oversized tote bags are great for giving you a stylish statement, especially if you’re wearing a monochromatic outfit. But, to make your oversized tote bags more versatile, keep them in the neutral shades so you can wear them with casual outfits, feminine dresses, and summer looks that will make your style fashion-forward and summer-inspired.
