How to Wear Slouchy-Chic Styles


There's nothing sloppy about being slouchy, according to the spring 2015 runway. Taut and tailored took a side seat as oversize ensembles and loose layering proved to be a reoccurring idea this season. The trend showed up at Tibi, Chanel, and Barbara Bui, to name a few, and now we're ready to make this runway look a reality. Here are a few slouchy-style rules to keep in mind.

  1. Invest in easy-to-wear slouchy styles like oversize knit sweaters, grandfather cardigans, relaxed trousers, boyfriend tees, low-slung jeans, loose dusters and blazers, and roomy joggers. These are the key pieces that, when fashioned together, keep this aesthetic looking luxe rather than unrefined.
  2. Balancing different silhouettes is key. If you're doing a lot of slouchy styles, then elongate the look with sleek heels and dainty jewelry. If you're focusing on only one oversize piece, then pair it with slimmer styles for balance.
  3. Mix aesthetics. Get sporty and chic with joggers and pumps. Do downtown cool and polished prep with distressed boyfriend jeans and a classic trench. Get creative with seemingly contradictory styles pieced together for a flawless finish.
