Oversized tailoring is a hot with the fashion set at the moment, and in one way or another, the trend will surely make its way to the masses.
The look borders on borrowed-from-dad: blazers and shirts appear too big, pants too long and baggy. And yet it isn’t all as sloppy as it sounds—perhaps the word too doesn’t have a place here, as articles of clothing are no doubt big, but also smartly tailored to fit in the right places.
Most examples of this trend show very minimal jewelry: petite hoops, sometimes a necklace—maybe a sleek watch on the wrist of someone who rolled up her blazer’s sleeves, ’80s style. It’s a study in contrasts, the big clothing unhindered by the subtle accessories, and yet the jewels getting all the more visible for their polar opposite stature. Despite the large, flowing fabrics, this is not altogether a maximalist trend; more is more does not apply here.
And yet… If baggy pants and long, behind-covering blazers isn’t your bag, translating that contrasting clothing to jewels provides the perfect opportunity to dabble in oversize jewelry. Take a well-fitting white T-shirt and miniskirt, for example, and hit it with hoop earrings the size of dinner plates and a cocktail ring that could be seen from space.
The aforementioned descriptions need not be taken literally, of course, but serve to paint the image of big, bold jewels that have a lot of fun and get many looks in the process.
