Super-Size me! This look is all about oversizing in a good way!
2 things to remember when you're not a 5' 11" model and you want to wear oversized clothing or accessories:
1. Always wear some sort of heel to make your legs look longer
2. Keep your hair sleek. Big fixed hair will compete with the larger clothing and make you look bigger than you are. I styled this here with a big braid. But I also wore this cape with jeans, booties and my hair on top of my head. You just need to remember to not compete with your clothes and accessories.
I'm normally a "Rent the Runway" girl when it comes to super fancy dresses that I would never buy just to have in my closet. However, I saw that they were running a 'free rental' contest through their Instagram so I entered and won a 'free rental'. I wanted to give something a try that was outside my comfort zone and was immediately drawn to this Checkered Buckle Sweater by Parker. I feel in love with the oversized look and unlike a poncho where you can't move your arms, this cape has arm holes and buckles to keep it on you! lol! Again, I have to say that I am always pleased with Rent the Runway and they have so expanded their inventory! Now, no matter what occasion you have, they have something perfect for you!
Also, had so much fun working with Clay Corbin Photography during this shoot! If you're in the Houston area, look him up!
Happy Wednesday loves! xoxo!
