Slouchy Everything F/W 06.07
The next big thing...

If you are tired of the skinny everything (pants and jeans especially) from the past seasons, this trend is going to be an attractive option. Slouchy pants, coats, skirts, tops, dresses.... Everything is being supersized.... ...and not to be confused with the oversized "puffy" (as perfected by Balenciaga) trend which is much more structured than this. This time around we're talking about comfortable, loose clothes.

What's your take on this trend? Flattering or not and are you ready to let go of the skinny trend?

Reminds me of Mary Kate Olsen. Ick. No bag lady-chic for me.

I think it's not for everyone though to wear loose things head to toe (i.e. if you're short). I personally love it - but would probably balance it out a bit more for everyday wear - fitted tops with slouchy trousers, slouchy cardigans with tighter pants. However, I would love to wear loose skirts and slouchy oversized coats (kinda like falling kimonos) - I think it's v. dramatic and striking.

i'm not quite sure i could pull off the whole look, but i'm incorporating looser tops with my skinny and tailored trousers and shorts, as well as slouchy dresses and coats with tights. perhaps by next winter i'll be ready for the whole shebang .

I think the looser silhouette can look flattering as long as it isn't overdone. I agree with susie_bubble - I'd like mixing up fitted and loose pieces.

you definately need it to not be overdone. just kinda grazing the skin you know. too much is frumpy.

but if it done minimully, its flatter

I like the looser pants (except jeans-they must be fitted) but as far as tops I can't go loose.

I like it, but I wouldn't wear everything slouchy, just one item at the time. I love those slouchy trousers and jackets. Slouchy bags bug me though.

Slouchy/baggy cardignas/sweaters over some thigts og skinny jeans would look good i think.. example lindsay lohan's airport style:

I bought an oversized cashmere v neck a few months back, it's so big that it falls off my shoulders-i love it, it's perfect for flying.
