What I Learned While Supersizing My Wardrobe

Published

on

Picture this glamorous sight: I’m walking to grab a salad during my work lunch break last week, and the hemline of my baggy jeans are dragging across the dirty New York streets. Across my shoulder is a giant Peter Do bag, which could easily fit a corgi or a beagle. My outfit is hard to miss—it literally takes up space—and I can feel the stares of strangers from all angles. Of course, they don’t know that I’m test-driving the oversized style trend that’s been taking over the runways and being embraced by stars like Justin Bieber, Hailey Bieber, and Bella Hadid. To them, I am simply someone who is swimming—perhaps drowning—in supersized fashion.

On the runways, brands like Balenciaga, Peter Do, and Marc Jacobs have all shown XXL shapes in pieces like denim, dresses, and suiting. It didn’t take long for the look to catch on among A-listers. Justin Bieber went viral at this year’s Grammy Awards when he showed up in a huge Balenciaga suit complete with Crocs. Celebrity stylists have been seeing an uptick in their clients coming on board with the spacious look, too. “We’re seeing a return of ‘90s trends in general, and we really love to see the reemergence of hugely oversized pieces—they can be so fun to play with,” says Zadrian Smith of the stylist duo Zadrian + Sarah, who currently dress stars such as Ariana DeBose.

Intrigued by these commanding silhouettes, I wondered if I—a non-celebrity—could pull off the bold look. As someone who was a devoted skinny jean wearer during the 2010s, a humongous pair of jeans is extremely out of my comfort zone—but my fashion resolution this year was to experiment more. So, armed with my jumbo clothes and bags, and with the help of advice from three pro stylists, I embraced going baggy for a week below. Turns out, there are tips and tricks to nailing the look—including knowing which pieces to invest in, nailing layers, and considering proportion. “All of these styling choices keep someone from drowning in the clothes,” says Smith.

Sarah Jessica Parker Channeled Carrie Bradshaw at the Hocus Pocus 2 Premiere

Published

on

In Sarah Jessica Parker’s new film, Hocus Pocus 2 (which premieres on September 30th), she may play an evil and slightly goofy witch who sucks the soul of children for fun—but her chic look for the movie’s New York City premiere last night had her channeling another one of her iconic screen characters. The outfit’s bold colors, silhouette, and sky-high shoes were all something that Sex and The City’s Carrie Bradshaw would totally rock today.

Parker opted for uptown elegance, something that’s synonymous with Carrie’s Upper East Sider style. The star wore a floral-printed jacket with an embellished trim from Armani Privé’s fall 2022 couture collection, with pink harem-style pants that are a favorite of Carrie’s—especially in the second Sex and the City movie, when they crew headed to Abu Dhabi for a girl’s trip. 

But would it be a true homage to Carrie if there wasn’t a stiletto? Parker wore satin pink Fawn pumps from her own shoe collection, SJP Collection—though, at $365, they’re a more affordable style than Carrie’s beloved Manolo Blahniks, which now go for upwards of $900 a pop. Even so, the whole ensemble has us envisioning Carrie gallivanting around Manhattan in it today—you know, probably just to grab a coffee in.

Supermodel Bella Hadid rolled up to Paris Fashion Week sporting a new accessory: bangs!

The brunette was photographed in London earlier in the week with long, straight Cher hair, but it seems the change of location has also inspired a change in look as well. Hadid was just photographed on Wednesday, September 28 with a choppy fringe that goes all the way past her eyes and onto her cheeks. 

Here it is:
