How to Intentionally Wear a Big Suit and Look Good

Because, you know, oversized is in.

Going to an event doesn't always mean you have to bust out that traditional suit. Sometimes, a little risk-taking is needed to keep things interesting. Case in point, the oversized suit that's been on-trend for the past couple of years.

If the only thing that's stopping you from getting into it is how to pull it off, then you've come to the right place. Here's how to wear a big suit and look good while wearing it.

Play With Proportion.

Feel like you're drowning in fabric in an attempt to pull oversized off? Try keeping one part of the suit normal and go all out in the other half, much like Virgil Abloh at this year's CFDA Awards. This way, you can also take part in the trend without looking like you're in your dad's hand-me-downs. 

Do a Subtle Surprise.

Upon first glance, Steven Yeun looks like he's wearing a relaxed suit. But, when you look closer, however, you'll notice that his jacket hits his mid-thigh. It's just one of the tells of an oversized suit. The dark color and the traditional tailoring tone down the big aspect of it all.

Make Maximum Impact.

David Beckham's take on the oversized suit is menswear perfection. There's a minimalist feel to it, thanks to the one-button blazer, slightly big trousers, and the simple tee paired with sneakers. And, it gives off the effect it needs to at the same time.

Go Crazy.

This one's for the brave. A$AP Rocky doesn't play when it comes to style, and this pink Loewe suit takes on the pink suit trend along with the oversized suit trend. It takes a lot of sheer coolness to pull both off but the untucked shirt helps loads.
