Oversized shirts (particularly button downs),  have been a love of mine for quite some time now. When styled correctly they can have the opposite effect of what you'd expect. Usually when someone wears a looser fitting piece of clothing the first thought you have is - what is she hiding? Does she not know her size? I simply prefer my tops and blouses about size bigger than what actually 'fits me'. I find a slightly looser fit to be more flattering than one that just fits. 

A factor that comes with the territory, if you will is -balance!! Balance out your look. One of the ways I've learned to balance my look is to break up the super-oversized effect this tank top has by tucking in one half. Doing this creates the illusion of having longer legs and having a more stream-line look.

Hey y'all! Today and tomorrow's posts wrap up my coverage of the NOFW Shows.

Let me just start by saying that this show kicked all kinds of butt. Designer Tiffany Langlinais's collection fully captured the young, cool, and spontaneous attitude of New Orleans. Being a huge advocate of oversized t-shirts and monochromatic outfits, I was immediately in LOVE with the styling of the looks. And I want(ed) everything. Did I mention that she also designed the gorgeous headpieces and necklaces worn in the show? The accessories also included detachable fringe anklets from Savvy Root (seen in the eighth image)

 "Established in New Orleans, Louisiana in November 2013, Freret & Napoleon aims to give greater accessibility to transitional and mischievous clothing and accessories that hold all of the Southern charm and New Orleanian unruliness."

  The ended with all of the models at the end of the runway popping mini confetti filled champagne bottles. Too. Freaking. Cool.
