This dramatic look is the perfect way to make a style statement. Here are a few ways to pull off voluminous fashion.
Decoding the trend
This look is all about embracing more volume, so get ready to retire the head-to-toe skintight look. However, the voluminous look is not about shapeless style either. In fact, it’s all about using volume to create a striking look. The look has gained favour on several runways and is loved by a-listers.
Choose the right piece
There are an array of styles to choose from such as shift dresses, oversized sweaters and wide leg palazzo style pants. You can also add volume by choosing a piece that features an oversized element such as dramatic sleeves or trousers with a flared leg.
While there are an array of prints and colours to choose from, this look works really well with neutral, richer hues like black and burgundy.
Balance your proportions
You can’t wear a voluminous piece with another voluminous piece — unless a frumpy look appeals to you. The trick to pulling off the look is balancing a bolder piece with one that is more fitted for a figure-flattering look. You should also consider lightweight fabrics that drape well to enhance your assets and flatter your body.
Keep it simple
Since the look is quite bold, your best bet is to offset this by keeping your accessories simple. For example, pair a voluminous off-the-shoulder top with fitted skinny jeans, basic black heels and stud earrings for a chic look. You can also use a belt to define your waist to flatter your figure while rocking the trend.
