How to Rock Your Figure in the Boxy Trend


Trends can be tricky especially when they seem impossible to work with your body shape




Luckily there are a few tricks and tips to look striking in the boxy oversized trend



Phillip Lim

A wide shorter cut top with wider sleeves can be chic in a matter of showing your shape with other pieces

Exposed wrists, from either the sleeve length or rolling sleeves up will allow for a slimmer look 

Bringing the line in at the waist by means of a high-waisted bottoms create a slimmer look 

Cropped trouses will act as the aforementioned wrist-exposure

Enlongating prints/ patterns on your shorts/ skirt/ trousers will give length to your look while the boxy top is more horizontal

A cape was one of the season's biggest trends

The trouble is sometimes a girl can get lost in all that lofty fabulous fabric

A sleek pencil skirt, tailored shorts with a narrow cut at the leg, or skinny trousers are a feminine perfection 

Another handy tip is to use neutral colored bottoms, or monochrome colors to your top, keeping your figure looking long and lean, even under all that material

Crop tops, another huge "win" this year

Slight mid-drift exposure will allow your shape to be flaunted while donning the wide-leg trouser

Keeping your colors neutral will keep your look chic, and sophisticated

A higher neckline/longer cut top will create a longer line and conservative appeal

With a wide-leg trouser, a nice classic pair of pumps will give your legs extra length, since a cropped wider leg pant can create the illusion of shortness on anybody! (except for Karlie Kloss, maybe)


It is important to choose a pair what do not have busy straps as this can cut off and shorten your leg line


The exposure of the ankle with these types of trousers will expose your ankles, giving a leaner look

The boxy coat a winter essential of this season, can be intimidating when thinking of to not look lost in your coat and still remain sleek and chic

Cinching in at the waist will give you the forever desired hourglass look

Add a bit of sparkle for a more formal look, or a chain for a retro-inspired look

Keep the colors neutral will keep the look coherent and not take away from the jacket's aesthetic
