Who said you had to have every item in your wardrobe tailored to perfection? Pearl Mathias brings you a few of her favourite anti-fit picks to fill up your closet
Several fashion trends float around at the beginning of every new season, and although we’re no strangers to the flowery bottoms and embroidered crop-tops that have taken over fashion files, there’s one style that women everywhere are breathing a sigh of relief about — the anti-fit trend. Don’t we love pulling on our boyfriend’s T-shirts just because they feel warm and comfortable? We’d like to believe that the trend emerged from the same love for loose-fitted clothes and hatred for constricting outfits as we often feel. And, what’s not to like about clothing that you will be comfortable in throughout the day? However, as with most fashion, you could go wrong. To avoid looking like you’re in a potato sack, pair a loose item with a slightly more fitted one and you’re good to go. If you can’t wait to rock the trend, but don’t know where to begin, here are a couple of picks to get you started.
The French-inspired, cross-stitch embroidery and pop hues on this shift dress from Quirk Box adds a funky look to your comfy monsoon getup. Pair it with flats or wedges and accessorise with a jewelled clutch to put together the perfect outfit.
