While fashion is a great avenue to have fun trying out new trends, if you want to put together outfits that are not just stylish, but also flattering, you must learn how to dress for your body type, and know how to play with proportions, too.

Pairing a voluminous piece with a fitted one is a foolproof proportion play that's chic, flattering, and totally comfortable, too! Wondering how you can master this easy style tip? Scroll down as we show you how you can get an A in proportion play with a fuss free oversized top and mini skirt style equation.


Put together a cool girl OOTD without breaking a sweat by pairing an edgy chambray button-down with an equally edgy leather mini. Throw in a big hat to add a major style boost to your look.


With Holiday season coming up, the weather in the city is bound to get cooler. Beat the chilly winds of the "–Ber" months with a chunky oversized knit! Balance the volume of your top with a cute pleated mini for a modern school girl look.

White tops are always fresh and chic, but surprisingly, an oversized white top looks fresher and chicer. Wear yours with an equally fresh statement skirt for a feminine and fashionable look for the day.


The denim-on-denim trend may have started in the nineties, but this fashion trend is still as strong as ever. Pull off this trend with an oversized denim top and a denim mini for a quick blast from the '90s.


While proportion play is essential to create flattering OOTDs, you don't have to scrimp on the fun while doing so. Pair your chunky black knit with a plaid mini for an interesting play on contrasting prints and textures.

When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
