It's fact: Relaxed-fit, borderline-oversize, clothing is timelessly cool. Especially when balanced in proportion. For instance, a billowy pair of paper bag jeans look downright elegant with a fitted shirt tucked into the waistband. Likewise, a long trench worn open over a slim-fit-jeans-and-tee ensemble serves as a graceful, flowy complement. The result of these foolproof fashion equations is cool and, most importantly, comfortable. And the seven looks below demonstrate this perfectly.
Starting with modern classics by AG—naturally including jeans—stylist Alexis Badiyi created a week's worth of outfits that are impressive yet easy to achieve. Demonstrated on Coveteur's Director of Brand and Client Strategy, Giselle Persak, the outfits feel polished enough for weekday meetings, but also feature a few slightly more spacious silhouettes that'll make you happy to recreate them on the weekend, too. Ahead, Badiyi shares a breakdown of the fashion math and specific advice for mastering proportions.
Belted Jumpsuit + Heeled Mules
"This Ryleigh denim jumpsuit is an effortlessly chic go-to wardrobe staple, worn here with a heeled mule sandal to elongate this classic silhouette."
Denim Jacket + Silk Slip Dress + Slides
"The length and color of this Chelsea denim jacket feels so elegant. Even when styled minimally, it works for a night out."
Wide-Leg Jeans + Trench Coat + Western Boots
"This structured olive Aria trench adds a hint of sophistication and elevates an easy go-to look. Pair with cowboy boots to make this an instant fall classic look."
Tailored Sweatpants + T-Shirt + Loafers
"These aren't your typical sweatpants. The cut, color, and pintuck details of the North sweatpant transform them into the most comfortable trousers. Paired with a classic loafer and white tee, this is one of those staple uniform looks you can't wait to repeat."
Trucker Jacket + Maxi Dress + Heeled Sandals
"The Kendrix [trucker jacket] is one of my favorite understated pieces in the collection. This can be worn as a layering piece or, shown here, as a focal point to your look. Kendrix is a perfect lightweight, oversized jacket to complete an outfit. I love the contrast of wearing it with a delicate heel and a minimal turtleneck dress."
Paperbag Trousers + Turtleneck + Loafers
"These Belted Paperbag Renn trousers were a perfect fit for Giselle, worn here with a ribbed neutral turtleneck. The cinched belted waist and pleating gave dimension to her silhouette while the cropped length was excellent to wear with her favorite loafers."
Denim Jacket + Sweatsuit + White Sneakers
"As a stylist, there are days that are filled with errands. This is a great look for a busy day when you want to feel comfortable and classic."
