Fashion historians say that oversized and baggy clothes first became popular in the 1920s (in Western fashion at least). The post-war mood changed when women in Canada and the United States won the right to vote and go to work. Like their social position, women's clothing became more comfortable, and Coco Chanel was at the forefront of the movement to eliminate the tight-waist fashion of previous generations.
This freedom manifested itself in comfortable clothing and with it, a new set of ideal body standards for women. Instead of being tight and flattering, Chanel's famous flowing skirts and halter tops gave women the choice to choose how they want the world to see them.
Oversized is just a concept, style is still yours to define. This concept is extremely diverse in choosing the style you want to pursue, from lady-like to street style. Give your wardrobe a makeover this season and try it out.
