A slouchy posture: not hot. A slouchy silhouette: UBER hot! This season is all about the no-muss, no-fuss, effortless slouch and I am eating it up! The spring runways were filled with slouch, a silhouette we saw at Chloe, John Galliano, Burberry Prorsum, Akris, Stella McCartney, Thakoon, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and many other trend-setting colections. From pants to tops to jackets to dresses, almost all of the collections were marked by a return to a more relaxed sophistication and easy-chic sensibility thanks to this care-free silhouette.
I have always loved this style and make it a habit to buy clothes a few sizes too big to achieve the effect. The key here is slouchy, NOT sloppy so opt for items that loosely drape from your frame rather than those that look like they’re drowning you. Another tip for rocking this look is to balance proportions- if you’re wearing a slouchy top pair it with some skinny jeans, if you’re going for slouchy bottoms, then team them with a slimmer top or structured jacket. It’s important to always remember to wear your clothes and not let them wear you.
