The Trend: When I Grow Up

What: The playfulness of a kid in oversized pieces + the sophistication of a working adult.  DO buy oversized sweaters, vests, button downs, waistcoats, etc.  DON’T size up on your pants/trousers.

With: Keep the pants slim and the tops oversized.  Play around with layers of clothing that do not usually go together (ie: button down over sweater, sweater vest over blazer). Stick with clean traditional shoes.  Your look is already busy enough with the play of the proportions.
