A round of applause for slouchy clothing

A round of applause for slouchy clothing

At ease

Loose, comfortable and oh-so-chic, here's how you can get your slouch on

Gone are the days when style maven Victoria Beckham's uniform consisted of figure-hugging bodycon dresses and skyscraping stilettos. Now, the mother of four is more often seen in a loose shirt tucked into baggy trousers (or skirt), all kept grounded with a flat shoe.

It's a freeing way to dress, particularly when self-conscious about having put on a little holiday weight or if there are problem areas you wish to disguise. Baggy clothing doesn't have to mean dowdy—a brightly coloured top adds a burst of freshness over voluminous pants, while embellished sneakers lend sparkle to the relaxed look. Here's how you can buy into the trend:

1. Crew neck jumper by Jil Sander

2. Wool-blend coat by Acne Studios

3. Crepe wide-leg pants by Tome

4. Striped wool and cotton-blend baseball cap by Rag and Bone

5. Merveilles printed leather shoulder bag by Gucci

6. Diorsynthesis sunglasses by Dior

7. Sneaky Viv embellished leather sneakers by Roger Vivier
