When you look at the urban street style and fashion centres across the world there’s one thing to remember this season: Oversize! And by that we don’t mean to balance one oversized piece with something slimmer. Nope. That was 2016. Go large from head-to-toe. Fitting has a true new meaning this spring and the only thing (besides your bicycle) you need to balance is the fine line between appearing a little too ‘comfy’ with your look more suited to stay on the couch rather than going or cycling to the office.
Spring 2017 – Bigger is radder
But when you keep a few rules in mind the “big” trend in fashion will help you to a fresh and effortlessly-cool look. Try it out and take your chunky-knit cardigans, midi skirts, cozy sweatshirts, boyfriend jeans and big winter cocoon coats on your next bike ride… and you might even consider wearing them all at once.
Perfect combo: Oversized wool sweater worn over a metallic midi-skirt (Both pieces available at Zara.com)
Simply the perfect knit piece to accompany your urban adventures. From allthatiwant.com
Very cool pairing. Not ideal for cycling, but you can always protect the legs of your jeans back from getting tangled in the spokes with a skirt-garter. Photo courtesy: WEAR / @SHIN80309.
