Going The Extra Mile: 8 Looks From Bollywood Stars To Work Oversized Attires Like A Boss

When it comes to dressing up and stepping out, things might be on a standstill but if anything, fashion instigates keeping the spirits up, even in tough times. Be it your everyday Zoom looks or the much-awaited festive season, albeit one with social distancing in tow, breaking the monotony requires delving into something unique. Speaking of which, making way for oversized clothing to your wardrobe is one way to play to your sartorial strengths, a feat Bollywood has managed to excel in, giving us looks worth trying. 

Lessons In Styling Oversized Clothing

From winterwear and summer clothing to all that you will need for winning looks this festive and wedding season, here are the essential lessons in getting the oversized clothing just right. 

Indian Wear Ensembles

With the festive season almost upon us, along with a couple of intimate wedding-related gatherings, an oversized approach can make for a distinct and striking look. If you are one who likes to go all out and experiment, we suggest taking the contemporary route like Sonam Kapoor, adding a roomy jacket on your shoulders like a cape. Alternatively, there are always the voluminous skirts to add to your festive wardrobe, one you can team with a streamlined top or jacket à la Janhvi Kapoor. Don't forget to get that shimmery highlighter to your look because it's definitely going to work in your favour!

The Winter Lookbook

There may still be time to add the ideal winter woollies to your closet, but why not do it a bit in advance! ICYMI, oversized trench coats, overcoats and jackets not only keep the chill at bay but also provide great scope for experimenting with fashion. Should you wish to keep it minimal, teaming your choice of attire with structured woollen outerwear, Khushi Kapoor's look is one worth taking notes from. Or, you could always cinch your sizeable coat at the waist, adding a strategic layered element to your OOTD like Deepika Padukone!

Giving In To Structure

Trust a tailored blazer to elevate your outfit in a jiffy and both Alia Bhatt and Rhea Kapoor will agree. Then, you could be heading out for a small soirée, looking to spruce up your workwear wardrobe or even looking to mix things up by giving a contemporary twist to your Indian wear avatar. Either ways, a blazer is the wardrobe classic that undeniably takes things up a notch, though we recommend teaming your attire with an oversized one for good measure. A striking rich lip colour is optional.
